Any realtor who uses some variation of "This hardwood flooring is OUTTA HERE!" when trying to sell the place should be executed.

Obama joins All-Star festivities | Philadelphia Daily News | 07/15/2009

President Obama met a lot of people before he threw out the first pitch of the All-Star Game. Phillies centerfielder Shane Victorino was the only one to bring him a present: a box of macadamia nuts. Both grew up in Hawaii. "My parents came in and brought sonme goodies," Victorino said before appearing in his first All-Star Game last night. "It was nice to see him again [after the Phillies visited the White House earlier this season]. I just wanted to bring him a little taste of home."

The shave ice melted on the plane. WOCKA WOCKA WOCKA!!!

Breakdown Of Roy Halladay Trade Prospects

Phillies (3-1): They say pitchers Kyle Drabek and Jason Knapp and outfielder Dominic Brown are untouchable prospects. If they part with two of them, the Phils, who won it all without Halladay last year, could be untouchable for the next two years.
