NLCS: Back to Busch

Like all egotistical bloggers, I'm gonna paraphrase myself here:

Everyone wants a piece of the three-straight-games comeback, but I'd be long on the Astros right now. I think Houston still wins the series, probably tonight behind Oswalt, and they go on to play the ChiSox in the World Series.

But, on the other hand, if someone told me the Florida Marlins would be down 3-1 and reel off three straight wins against Carlos Zambrano (2003 ERA: 3.11, 168 K), Mark Prior (2.43, 245 K) and Kerry Wood (3.20, 266 K), I'd say they were crazier a Costco-sized box of Craisins. And I'd mean it.

Anything can happen. But I think the 'Stros close it out tonight. Don't believe the hype. Don't believe the hype, it's a sequel.

Why not release a DVD, Handstand? There's gotta be great footage of this in a vault somewhere.

no mention of the other major sporting event last night? islanders-rangers! it was a great game, my team got thoroughly outplayed, but at least DiPi was dominant in goal and we won. Next game tonight, let's go Islanders!!!

What's hockey? Actually, I watched the first period in HDTV, and hockey in HDTV is AWESOME.

But then I remembered that this game is awful...so terrible to watch. Sad that 10 years ago this was Yankees/Red Sawx. Now it's Liberty/Sparkz or whatever. Sad.

I guarantee the Astros will win.

Lets not get picky here Ace! We're talking one of the best shows in Phistory on soundboard about to be flung into the wild.

But I do see your point. I'd love to witness the Phish Gamehendge Time Factory Incorporated once again, but I'd have to guess that the footage doesn't exist. I'd imagine they probably only had one camera at the soundboard and probably weren't thinking with a dvd/video release in mind back in '95. But I do know there is a bootleg video of the show floating around, so don't be surprised if some (I love) technology wizards fuse the video and soundboard together. That would be just terrific.

I actually have 12/31/95 on DVD...it's one of the I was lookin for an official release. And I have it on disc as well, so I don't think I'm gonna be buying this one. Still, cool stuff.

hockey on hd is amazing, makes the game much more fan-friendly to watch from home. i think hd could prove very helpful for hockey. as far as the isles-rangers rivalry goes, i was there last night, and the atmosphere was incredible. i expected it to be exciting, but it totally exceeded expectations. hockey is most definately back, and the shoot out makes it even better. what part of the game was so terrible to watch?

For real? Forgive me for not letting the blase attitude go by. Do you not like the show or something? I have a pretty good aud copy of it as well, but the option of having it on soundboard just blows me away. The Reba, Coil, Runaway Jim, Drowned > Lizards, Sea & Sand, awesome Weekapaug out of ALS, Sanity and then the rockin JBG to encore it. All in remastered soundboard quality?!?! I'm going to explode.

i'll leave the hockey aside for now. i'm so happy that i'll be able to have a SBD of this show. that reba alone makes it worth it...i can't wait to listen!

Elliot, I'm just not feeling the return of hockey...the game just still looks so slow to me. Not sure how they're gonna get me back, but I don't see it happening any time soon.

Handstand, I'm with ya, I hear ya, all that jazz. I LOVE that show, I watch it on DVD, I listen tot he Aud copy -- but I'm just not sure I wanna plunk down more cash for a SBD copy. That's all. Will I cave and buy it? Maybe. Jury's still out.
