CBS Reality Competition Shows to Have Phillies Ties

Phans, with more than 3 weeks until the first televised spring training game, CBS will have your loosely related Phillies programming. Starting Thursday night, the new season of Survivor will feature Kyle Kendrick's lovely fiance Stephenie LaGrossa. Also, beginning on Sunday evening, the new season of The Amazing Race will feature former Phillies third base coach Steve Smith and his daughter.

Stephenie will proudly be rocking a Phillies cap on the 20th season of Survivor, which will feature two tribes of previous Survivor contestants, competing against each other, in a "Heroes vs. Villains" format. Previews for the premiere episode tease that there are two injuries in the very first competition, one of which is a dislocated shoulder. Sources inform me that Stephenie suffered a shoulder injury early on (possibly due to a preexisting condition) and that she is certainly one of the injured competitors. No word on how it effects her game play. You'll have to tune in to find out if Steph can make it to the end, as she did in the show's 11th season when she was runner up.

Stevie Smith and his daughter Allie will compete as a team on the 16th season of The Amazing Race. Smith was the third base coach for the 2008 World Series Championship team, but he was not brought back to help the champs defend their title. Smith was hired this off-season to coach third base for the Cleveland Indians. The Smiths will be one of 11 teams vying for the top prize of $1 million. Teams race throughout the world competing in challenges or "roadblocks". The team that finishes last in each week's leg of the race is usually eliminated. Check out the Race to see if Smith can wave home some big bucks, or if he and Allie will get thrown out at the plate, like sooo many Phillies did under his watch.

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best. When asked how he felt regarding the Phillies, he told Steve Keeley that he was, "Stoked, baby!" The unidentified phanatic then proclaimed, "We are talking about the Fightins here, the Fightins! Said!" Check out the media player below, as the transcribed version certainly does not do this phireball of phandom justice. The Phillies forced game 6 of the National League Championship Series with a 4-2 victory over the Giants in San Francisco on Thursday night. Game 6 will feature Roy Oswalt vs. Jonathan Sanchez in a return pitching match up from game 2. First pitch is scheduled for 7:57 pm EST at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Be sure to tune in on 97.3 ESPN's Weekend Sports Guide with Tyrone Johnson this afternoon around 1:15pm to hear me chatting about the Phillies! 97.3 is based in Atlantic City.

McGwire Stays Phony, Despite Admitting Drug Use

Mark McGwire made an effort to publicly come clean today, admitting to the world that he took performance enhancing drugs during his playing career. Steroids and human growth hormones were among the drugs that McGwire admitted to using. MLB Network featured a one on one interview with Bob Costas and McGwire on Monday evening. The broadcast was virtually garbage, thanks to McGwire. Ahead is a list of quotes from McGwire's interview. McGwire repeatedly stated his point of view that there were no dishonorable intentions involved when taking steroids, and that he was merely using them as a means to recover from varying ailments. When asked if he felt like he cheated... "As I look back now...I can see how people would say that. As far as the talent goes and the hand-eye coordination, the ability, the genetics I was given...I don't see it." "I did not take this for any strength purposes." Denial. Read on for similar B.S. He whined about the abuse he'

Rappers in Phillies Caps

Weekend greetings to you phine pholks out there. Today's post features pictures of rappers wearing Phillies caps. Why rappers in Phillies caps, you ask? Because... Any other questions? We will start things off properly by going with a highly recognizable hip hop star. 50 Cent stays constantly relavant by consistantly creating radio friendly material to help sell (G) units, while he "keeps it real" by still rapping about the thug life he lived before becoming the 2nd highest earning black entertainer in America. 50 is seen here in a recent interview rocking a throw-back Phillies cap. Next up we'll use a throw-back screen cap from what may be the very first major appearance by a rapper wearing Phillies gear. Chuck D, of legendary rap group Public Enemy, wore a Phillies cap in the music video for rap anthem Fight The Power in 1989. The song was the lead single from the soundtrack for Spike Lee's film Do The Right Thing . Next up we'll go with some home gro
