Major League Bocce - The Cure for PPSD

Major League Bocce - The Cure for PPSD

Take preventative measures now to avoid your 2012 Post Phillies Season Depression.  Don’t wait to find yourself at home idly flipping channels trying to find the Phils game, only to realize there isn’t one. Don’t head to your local bar to drown your sorrows in a pint alone and reflect on the 2012 season that wasn’t. And please, please do not fill your newly freed up October weeknights watching Dancing with the Stars. 

[Sing up here to play Major League Bocce in Philly this fall]

Instead, join Major League Bocce starting next week for your Tuesday nights out.  The 700 Level crew is doing it. Compete with us each week on the custom-designed indoor courts at the Field House in Center City.  You can enjoy the $4 Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale and 60 Minute IPA specials.  Meet other sports fans and make some new friends.  To be clear, bocce is a game enjoyed by people of all ages, but almost universally with a beverage in one hand and a ball in the other. How can you lose under those conditions? You can’t.

Want to start the competition early?  You can still submit a photo entry in the Beer and Balls photo contest hosted by The 700Level and Major League Bocce.  The contest winner will get a free spot on The 700Level team and space for a “plus one.” Check out the competition and enter now.  Every contestant will get a $5 discount on their season with Major League Bocce.

Here are the only stats you need to have a happy fall full of drinking and sports:

  -  Register for Major League Bocce before October 8th
  - Play Tuesdays starting October 16th, concluding December 11th (between 7 and 10PM)
  - Drink $4 Dogfish Head drafts at the newly renovated, grown-up Field House (Google map)

Jimmy Fallon gives out superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players

Jimmy Fallon, the host of the Tonight Show, handed out his superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players. 

Linebacker Jordan Hicks was named “the most likely to be one of the Rugrats all grown up,” and safety Rodney McLeod was named “most likely to have been told he’d get a lollipop after the photo was taken.”

Unfortunately, their was not a superlative given to Tony Romo for being named mostly likely to be crying on the ground after getting sacked. 

The Cowboys and Eagles will face off on Sunday Night Football, where we will see the first battle between rookie quarterbacks Dak Prescott and Carson Wentz.

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

The lore of Philly sports fans continue to grow. 

And this time, nothing was thrown.

Current Cubs and former Rays manager Joe Maddon said that during the 2008 World Series, Phillies fans found the hotel his team was staying at, and honked car horns throughout the night, keeping the team up.

"The Philly fans, they knew we were there somehow," Maddon told reporters Wednesday. "Five o’clock in the morning they’re driving around the hotel blowing the horn, trying to wake everybody up at 5:00 in the morning, 6:00 in the morning…."

Maddon says the team had already checked out of their original hotel before Game 5, but because the game was suspended, the Rays had to book another hotel in the area.

Through some impressive detective work, fans found the team's hotel and did their best to wake up the Rays throughout the early morning.

Did it work?

It must have, because the Rays allowed a leadoff double to Geoff Jenkins (remember that guy?) to resume the game.

You have to be pretty exhausted to allow a hit to that guy.
