This might be the most important road trip the Phillies have taken since they traveled to St. Louis during the 2011 NLDS. Having started the season 11-9 and rolling into the trek on a six-game winning streak, the squad will battle two expected World Series contenders, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the reigning champion Chicago Cubs
You never know when these kind of games are going to come. They’re the games that test your resolve whether you felt you deserve to win or not. As the game got to a certain point, it was apparent that the Mets had no business winning this game

When Nothing Turns Into Everything
There has been a lot to like so far in the Phillies young season. The first time through the rotation, Aaron Nola, Jeremy Hellickson and Jerad Eickhoff looked very good.

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big story line. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The defending champion Cavaliers dropped into a tie with Boston atop the Eastern Conference

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics are (again) Tied for 1st Place
This has been a bad week for UND Athletics (as well as the university in general) and, I’m afraid, it’s only going to get worse. The financial shortfall that UND has to shoulder (as do all other universities in the state) is not a small fee and certainly couldn’t be discarded or eliminated through an act of creative accounting. This is real and these two programs, women’s hockey and swimming & diving are now the banners for the event. However, even without the shortfall, I fear that women’s hockey is already tragically flawed for the very reason why it was created: equality. Women’s hockey isn’t equal to men’s hockey. It’s still subject, in a manner of speaking, to the chauvenistic assumptions of men as it pertains towards limitations of ability. In other words, checking isn’t allowed in women’s hockey not because women aren’t capable of checking properly, but because there is an underlying assumption that women are “too fragile” and represent the grace and delicacy of a beautiful flower (to cite a sickening metaphor). The truth is: checking isn’t allowed in women’s hockey because the powers that be don’t want the two sports to be truly equal. Women are very well qualified and capable of dealing out and taking hits just like the guys are. No one is willing to give them the chance, though. I recall that even the Lamoreaux girls were unhappy the day they had to give up checking. But I digress, the fate of the sport. Women’s hockey was a visible lamb to sacrifice towards the gods of finances, not because they wanted to make a statement against women’s sports or Title IX or anything, but because no one goes to the games despite the amount of money being spent building the program. No offense to the swimmers and divers but, had they just cut that program only those in the program would really have cared in the big picture. Hockey is the most visible sport in Grand Forks and cutting the women’s program certainly did open some eyes, even though many of those open eyes don’t go to games
My Take on the plight of UND fringe athletics
It’s finally here. The 2017 starts with the Phillies in Cincinnati, the birthplace of professional baseball.
With team USA’s lopsided win over Puerto Rico, another World Baseball Classic is in the books and for the first time ever, there seems to be more positive commentary than negative. The games were generally competitive and entertaining (even if the final game was a blow out) with very few games being decided by the mercy rule.
