From Baby Faced Assassin to title winning manager

Over the last couple of weeks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been rumored to make a return to England to manage Aston Villa but that appears to have fallen apart. In one year in his native Norway Solskjaer has brought his home town team a title and become one Fergie's fledgling. Of all of Fergie's former players Ole might have the brightest future as a manger and could one day find himself in the Old Trafford hot seat.

Maybe Phillies fans are threatened by the Nats

For the last couple of years, I have split a 16 game plan with a bunch of people to Citizens Bank Park. As a Nats fan I always took the Nationals game.

When I used to go I would wear my Nationals hat and shirt and no one would say a world. Phillies fans thought very little of the Nats and why should they we were a terrible team. Usually people would ask I became a Nationals fan and why I would put myself through it.

Now it's a different story. On Monday I went to the Phillies/Nationals game with my father in law. I was wearing my Bryce Harper Harrisburg Senators shirt and the whole game people were giving me crap. Boy have times changed.

I guess the fact that Phillies fans are giving me crap about it means that they are scared of us. The next couple of years are going to be interesting.
