Mike Vick Has Electricity Like Cyclops Has Electricity

Mike Vick Has Electricity Like Cyclops Has Electricity

Ahh, the tried and true local car commercial featuring a professional athlete. You really can't beat those and this one from Mike Vick for a Las Vegas Toyota dealership is top notch.

Bill Barnwell of Grantland kills it, so we'll just send you his way. The commercial starts out with Vick questioning the actual existence of electricity.

Even the most fervent members of the electricity-denial community
will have to admit that Vick's explanation is crummy at best. "No one's
seen it, but you know when it's on." Doesn't saying " … you know when
it's on" imply that electricity actually exists? And hasn't Vick ever
seen lightning before? Actually, research notes that a Virginia Tech game during Vick's tenure at the school was postponed by a lightning storm, so there really is very little basis for Vick's argument.

Maybe "electricity" is shorthand for "a great 2011 Philadelphia Eagles team."

Electricity burns.

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.
