Rants and raves about burning topics that have caught my attention midweek, be it greedy corporate shenanigans, frustration or joy in regards to the Philly sports teams, a movie, show or DVD that has fired up my imagination, an intriguing personality, or what’s happening in the region. — Lori Hoffman, Associate Editor, Atlantic City Weekly.

If you had told me just two years ago that I would go to bed and not even attempt to stay up to watch the Phillies when they are on the west coast, I would have called you crazy . . . or something worse. However, watching this team is not really fun anymore. I’ve turned off the Phillies in frustration numerous times already and it is just April.
That said, however, after a three game winning streak including two victories in a row over the West Division-leading L.A. Dodgers, I hereby pledge to try and stay up tonight, April 23, to watch the season debut of Cole Hamels looking to push the Phillies record above .500.
