The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Flyers Win! Good.

The Good:
The Flyers back up their incredible 6-0 blowout with a harder fought 3-0 shutout over the Canadiens! This game was much more competitive than game 1. In fact the Canadiens actually out skated the Flyers for half the match, but could not score on the power play as the Flyers did. Hats off to great goaltending!

The Bad: The Phillies, as good as they have been this season, have blown two consecutive strong outings by their ace, Roy Halladay. Doc could have been sharper in his last two starts, but this is twice in a row starting with the Rockies and now the Pirates, that the offense took the night off.


Let’s Go Flyers!!!

Sal Fasano Sighting

May 18th, 2010 by Johnny G | 2 Comments | Filed in General

After doing some extensive research and browsing on the internet, I have finally answered one of the many questions that has been on my mind for the last several years. Where is Sal Fasano? It turns out everyone’s favorite back-up catcher is now a minor league manager for the Single-A Toronto Blue Jays affiliate, the Lansing Lugnuts. Fasano, most recognized for his Fu-Manchu mustache and his likeable personality, quickly became a fan favorite here in the city of Philadelphia, despite his extremely mediocre talent. The fans took to Fasano so much that a fan group dubbed “Sal’s Pal’s” was formed ,where several fans wore fake mustaches similar to Fasano’s in the upper deck of Citizen’s Bank Park. Fasano was so appreciative of the support from the fans that he bought pizzas for the entire fan group during the games and also supplied many of them with tickets to future games.

It is a credit to Fasano’s character and personality that a man with his production and skill level could be remembered by a fan base for so long, and attract the type of fanfare that he did. Sal Fasano is an absolute class act and I would not be surprised if he turned out to be one hell of a manager. Hopefully, we will see Sal-Fa in the majors again one day, but this time he will be calling the shots.
