Underdog Phillies will face postseason undefeated Astros in World Series I The Rush

The Phillies won Game 5 against the Padres while the Astros finished a sweep of the Yankees to set up the 2022 World Series. Over in the NFL, Tom Brady looks washed as the Panthers overcame +500 odds to crush the Buccaneers 21-3, Carolina’s old running back Christian McCaffrey put up decent numbers in his 49ers debut against the Chiefs, and Aaron Rodgers and the Packers continue their downward trend with a loss to the Commanders.

- Sunday was full of surprises as the Buccaneers got absolutely trounced by the Carolina Panthers.

- Say what now?

- Tom Brady's offense only scored three measly points. If I were petty, I'd say Gisele was probably sipping a Mai Tai on a Beach somewhere, smirking. But I'm not petty, so there.

- Petty, petty girl.

- Brady might be this week's biggest loser, but the Panthers are clearly its biggest winners. They were plus 500 underdogs, which is nuts considering the 21-3 final scoreline. And the Panthers were quarterback by some guy named, P.J. Walker.

- Who?

- It's even more wild to think that Carolina traded their star running back, Christian McCaffrey, to the 49ers. He didn't do so badly himself, posting 62 total yards on 10 touches in San Francisco's 44-23 loss to the Chiefs. Now, Brady wasn't the only old head taking Ls. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers fell to the Washington Commanders, 23-21.

- Ouch.

- At least that game wasn't a blowout. No word yet on which spell Rodgers cast on his crystal necklaces to not lose as badly as Brady did this week.

- Hey, we did it. Let's go, 4 more. Let's go have some fun. [INAUDIBLE] now.

- Bryce Harper and the Philadelphia Phillies are your National League champions and are heading to the World Series, after taking care of the San Diego Padres in five games. The city of Philadelphia tried to keep streets safe from unruly fans by applying Crisco to poles all around the city. Looks like they missed one though. I'll be rooting for the Phillies in the World Series, because I've got to represent Vegas hometown hero, Bryce Harper, of course.

- Logical.

- Over in the ALCS the Yankees faced a daunting 3-0 deficit to the Astros. Things were so bad for the Bronx Bombers, that their mental skills coach sent around highlights of the 2004 Red Sox coming back from down 3-0 against the New York Yankees.

- You've got to be kidding me.

- Well, the unorthodox tactic was a dud, because the Astros took game 4 to schedule a World Series date with the Phillies. I can't wish the Astros well. They've become the new evil empire in my book, and they're advancing to their fourth World Series in six years by beating the old evil empire. So let's go Phillies.
