I have a very timely homonym error for you guys today. But first there's something I've gotta get off my chest...
(That's one exclamation point for each consecutive year they've been the NL East champions.)
Anyway. That blogger was correct when he said the Phillies would win the division and clinch home field advantage throughout the playoffs. That's definitely happened (yay!). He was also right about Halladay being the pitcher who would pitch the game in which the Phillies would clinch.
But he was not right when he said that "Rumor has it that Jayson Werth and Chase Utley were playing a mean game of Texas Hold 'Em en route to clinching a playoff birth...". Because, you see, it's not playoff birth. The playoffs are not being born. It's really a playoff berth.
Perhaps someone should hire me to teach my fellow Phillies phans about proper grammar...this isn't the only time a Phillies fan has needed a grammar lesson!
