Philly Thursday Update

Thursday, October 23, 2008 ·

First things first, I am sorry for my lack of posts. College is a pain in the ass when it's midterm season. Anyway, very busy week in sports. I will start with the Phillies. They won game 1 yesterday 3-2. Chase Utley hit a 2 run homer in the first, Cole Hamels pitched 7 strong innings, and Brad Lidge got the save. Justin will go into more detail with the recap. Game 2 is tonight in Tampa at 8:00 pm with Brett Myers facing James Shields.

In Eagles news: Shawn Andrews is going to be shelved at least 6 games after having back surgery. Max Jean-Gilles will replace him at RG. Also Kevin Curtis, Reggie Brown, and Brian Weatbrook are expected to back for Sunday's game against Atlanta.

In Flyers news: They are still winless after losing today 7-6 to the Sharks in a shoot out. Joffrey Lupul had 2 goals while Jeff Carter, Mike Richards, Scottie Upshall, and Danny Briere added a goal apiece in the loss. The Flyers are now 0-3-3 to start their season, earning them last place in the NHL.

In Sixers news: Elton Brand got 1 of 6 covers for the Sports Illustrated NBA preview. The Sixers were ranked 5th in the East and predicted to do some damage. Like Justin says, let's be patient but this team is not going to disappoint in the end.

And in Penn State news: Your #3 Nitney Lions will face #9 Ohio State this Saturday at 8:00 pm.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
