Does It Matter Which Way You Wear Your Championship Ring?

Does It Matter Which Way You Wear Your Championship Ring?

It's a question I never once thought about, but after Harry Kalas' shiny new statue was unveiled yesterday as Citizens Bank Park, the Internet folk have gone to war over it.

Which direction should your 2008 World Series Championship ring be worn? With the 'P' facing down when your hands are relaxed and standing? Or should the 'P' look normal in said situation?

People on the Internet debate:
"Why did he make the ring upside down? Nobody would wear it like that, " Mike commented.

"If you wear it the other way you'd be looking at an upside down logo your whole life. the ring is worn correctly," another surmised.

"Nope. It's supposed to be upside down to the person wearing it," chimed another.

"really? a discussion on the ring? get a life people."

"really? a comment on a discussion about a ring? get a life person."

"really? a snarky comment to a reply about getting a life? pot, kettle, black."

"Really, a snarky comment to a reply to a snarky comment to a reply to a comment about a ring? pot, kettle, black."

And finally:

"You are!"

Now a blog post on a discussion.

Penn can't stop Chase Edmonds in loss to Fordham

BOX SCORE

NEW YORK -- Chase Edmonds ran for 152 yards, added 49 yards receiving, and scored four total touchdowns to help lead Fordham to a 31-17 win over Penn on Saturday.

Kevin Anderson threw for 231 yards and one TD and Austin Longi added 92 yards receiving for the Rams (2-1).

Edmonds scored three times in the first half and Fordham opened up a 24-10 lead at halftime.

Penn responded late in the third on an Alek Torgersen 2-yard plunge which cut the score to 24-17. The Quakers (0-2) had an opportunity to tie it late but were turned away on downs at the Fordham 27-yard line.

Edmonds added his fourth score on the ensuing drive to put the game out of reach.

Torgersen had 125 yards passing for Penn.

Fordham has won three straight in the series and is now 25-2 at home since 2012, third best in FCS during that time frame.

Tonight's Lineup: Jorge Alfaro catches, bats 8th vs. Mets

Jorge Alfaro is behind the plate for the Phillies tonight and bats eighth. Alfaro has appeared in just four games since being called up earlier this month, and has just one hit in 10 at-bats. 

Tommy Joseph is back in the lineup and batting fifth. Pete Mackanin has said that Ryan Howard would get a lot of playing time during the last few games, but it is Joseph who gets the start tonight. Joseph is batting just .154 against the Mets this season. 

Odubel Herrera, who has been hitting well in September, will remain in the three spot. He has two homers and is batting .391 over the past week. Herrera has two hits in six at-bats against Mets' starter Sean Gilmartin.
