We’re not in the dark ages of Philadelphia sports yet. However, we’re on the Highway to Hell and doing about 120 in a 35 mile per hour zone.
Over the last 24 hours, the following calamities have fallen onto the Philadelphia sports scene:
- The Eagles lose.
- Former Pro Bowler Jason Babin was released (this is a good thing but hard to believe considering how he played last year).
- Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz, one of the most beloved Philadelphia sports figures of the last decade, was suspended 25 games for using Adderall.
- Andrew Bynum is hanging out at a gun range.
Let’s go back to the Eagles for a moment.
Not only did they lose their seventh game in a row during a 30-22 home defeat to the Carolina Panthers on Monday Night Football, but they also managed to stay a step behind of another Philadelphia team.
The Philadelphia Phillies last won a game on October 1 behind a strong outing from the much-maligned Kyle Kendrick.
Meanwhile, the Eagles last won a game on September 30, a 19-17 victory over the New York Giants.
Forget about the proverbial road to nowhere. The Eagles are out where the buses don’t run at this point.
It’s hard work being this bad. However, the Eagles are making it look easy.
That seems to be the plight of Philadelphia sports at the moment.
You know what could be the worst part of this run?
IT’S ONLY BEGINNING! WE HAVEN’T BOTTOMED OUT YET!
Ok, I got it out of my system.
