It’s only June, we are still voting
on the which players will make the All Star teams and yet I am already
tired of hearing the word ‘funk’, so for me this is one buzzword that can
not go soon enough and find it’s way into the pile of so many other buzzwords
that have been annoyingly popular for short periods, I have been told however
that for this word to be banished then it can no longer apply to your team or
players, so I am officially declaring the end of the Phillies
relapse from winning…..
….from here on out the Phillies
team will hit and score runs, they will no longer be connected to this buzzword.
So Phillies players, coaches and management,
take note it’s over, now go out and play baseball like you mean it.
Look out Marlins you will
feel the brunt of the Phillies without the…

Spring TrainingPosted: March 7, 2009 Filed under: Dailies | Tags: baseball, phillies, Spring Training 1 Comment
Spring training is under way and the Phillies players are enjoying themselves, it’s a time for blowing out the cobwebs, getting the baseball feeling back and loosening up the arms and legs. Then again for some of us it’s a time that says spring is upon us, the weather is turning the days into sun rather than snow, temperatures are heating up, away go the winter coats it’s almost sweatshirts and light coats and soon just good old t-shirts. Can’t wait for April… bring it on
The Great Debate…Posted: January 6, 2010 | Author: Phillies Outside | Filed under: Dailies | Tags: baseball, blogs, century, comments, decade, millennium, post | 7 Comments
a new decade seems to go on and on, some endured the sights of Ryan Seacrest
and Dick Clark telling us we were seeing the end of a decade and the
start of a new one. A good number of my fellow bloggers have posted their
personal choices for players and teams of the last decade, in addition to receiving
primarily good comments some have been told the decade is not yet over.
question is who’s right?
Is it a decade or NOT a decade…?
Those who believe it is NOT a decade do so
on the understanding that there was no year ‘0’ so the first decade was from
year 1 through year 10, thus giving us another year before the decade ends. If
this is how we determine decades then governments around the world spent millions on celebrating the
millennium a year early, although this is no
guide, since governments are known for jumping the gun on things and spending
money for no apparent reason.
Those who believe the decade is truly over do so
on the premise that a decade starts with ‘0’ and ends with ‘9’, thus giving us
2010 as the start of a new decade. So do those same people denounce the NO year ‘0’
theory or do they just not care.
This is how I see it…
A decade is the span of any 10 year
period, and although in reality the believers of the NO year ‘0’ are
factual in their beliefs, the decades of years do not go by the simplistic rule
of every 10 years from year ‘1’, the term decade depicting years is exactly as
the majority see it, i.e. “60’s”, “70’s”, “80’s”
etc are what they are decades.
In summary if you comment on someone’s post and
tell them the decade isn’t truly over, due to no year ‘0’, your incorrect to do
I am sure many will disagree with my conclusion,
but if you really want to get specific and technical every year ends a decade of
some kind or another, however the use of the term decade is referring to the
“10’s” periods of a century and a century references the
“100’s” period of a millennium.
