Lighter Fare - The Phillies RULE!
First, Todd Zolecki has a great story on the Great White Hope - Cole Hamels:
Cole Hamels is kind of a big deal.
To drive home that point, there's a Web site called colehamelsfacts.com. It's an offshoot of those tongue-in-cheek Chuck Norris facts (example: When Chuck Norris does a push-up, he isn't lifting himself up, he's pushing the Earth down) that are everywhere on the Internet. Some of the Cole Hamels facts are funny, while others, well ...
Nevertheless, here are this reporter's top five:
1. Cole Hamels will win one Cy Young ... and 11 Cole Hamels.
2. When kids go to bed they wear Superman pajamas. When Superman goes to bed he wears a Cole Hamels jersey.
3. Pedro Martinez keeps a picture of Cole Hamels under his hat for inspiration.
4. For Halloween, Chuck Norris went as Cole Hamels.
5. Kanye West almost needed to pay Cole Hamels royalties to release that "Jesus Walks" song, but Cole let it go because he doesn't walk anyone so it couldn't really be about him.
Also,..just a reminder - Aaron Rowand is a god!
