Shun, Shag, Or Marry: The New York Yankees Versus The Philadelphia Phillies

Tonight, my friends, is game six of the World Series, aka the night the Yankees could win it all. To be completely honest with you, I couldn’t give a damn about baseball and have never watched a full game in my life. However, I recognize that the game involves hot, illusive men in tights who do heroic things, so I’ll take a gambit at making potentially fakelife-altering decisions and choose which of the Yankees and which of the Phillies I would shun, shag, and marry.

How To Dress For Watching The World Series

If you want to hang with certain dudes right now, you’d better get interested in sports. The World Series is on many a male mind. Your first step is knowing that the New York Yankees are taking on the Philadelphia Phillies. Next, you should read this essay to understand the game and maybe fall in love with it too. Now you’re ready to watch a game at a sports bar. But what are you going to wear? Tips for picking out a World Series outfit after the jump — and um, we’re only being slightly facetious.

Female Phillies Fan Offers Sex For World Series Tickets

It’s been raining cats and dogs here in New York City for the last 24 hours, but hopefully it’ll clear up tonight for game one of the World Series between the Yankees and the Phillies. My die-hard Yankees fan of a husband would probably give his left … well, let’s just say he’d be really excited to go to a game, but he’s not as desperate — or as stupid, it seems — as one female Phillies fan who was arrested last night for her efforts to score tickets. Susan Finkelstein, 43, was charged with prostitution after she placed an ad on Craigslist offering sex in exchange for World Series tickets. She described herself as “gorgeous” and said: “I’m the creative type! Maybe we can help each other.” She was busted when an undercover cop responded to her ad and she allegedly offered to perform sex acts in exchange for some coveted tickets to the series. I’m going to suggest that from now on we refer to all sex-for-tickets transactions as “Finkelsteining,” in honor of our fallen Phillies fan. “How did you score those tickets?” “Oh, I Finkelsteined them.” Catchy, right?

The Girl’s Guide To The World Series (From A Woman Who’s Rekindled Her Love Of Baseball)

Last year, when the Phillies won the World Series, I cheered myself hoarse, posed with a police officer for a triumphant picture, and called my mother from the happily delirious mob I joined, beer in hand, to march down Broad Street. It was amazing — I have the Facebook pictures to prove it. And, I easily could have missed it. High school me would have rolled her eyes, channeled “Juno”-level snark, and stayed inside. Here’s how I learned to love the ball game, plus a guide for non-believers. Keep reading »

I’ve Become A Baseball Widow

It’s only been three months since I got married and, sadly, I’m already a widow — a baseball widow, I mean. My husband, Drew, is a huge, life-long Yankees fan, and if you aren’t following the sport or the team, the Yankees are currently one game away from making it to the World Series. Over the last two weeks or so of post-season, the Yankees have played something like nine games, most of which have lasted over four hours — some have even lasted over five hours. Tack on all the pre- and post-game coverage that Drew likes to watch and we’re looking at roughly 50 hours of baseball viewing in less the two weeks. Fifty hours, you guys! Basically, that’s a part-time job. Or, to put it in terms someone like me can wrap her head around a bit more easily, that’s 50 episodes of “The Real Housewives,” 25 episodes of “The Bachelor,” or 16 viewings of the 2009 Academy Awards!

The Daily Hotness: Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake has got game and everyone in Hollywood knows it. JT, who previously appeared in Black Snake Moan and Alpha Dog, is making another movie. The mega popstar will be rocking it in a baseball uniform for a new movie entitled The Open Road, playing a struggling minor leaguer opposite Jeff Bridges and Mary Steenburgen. This week the cast began taping the story of a fictitious player on the real Hooks Team, which is the AA team of the Houston Astros.
