Brad Lidge Signs A Fake Leg

Here's the Phillies' closer taking the time to sign a prosthetic limb after a recent game. Other players who claim not to have the time to sign for fans? Well, they no longer have a leg to stand on. [Crossing Broad] » 7/12/10 2:00pm 7/12/10 2:00pm

Lidge Meltdown Brings On Fan Meltdown

Though this video contains a dejected Phillies fan, it could be any one of us. In just three minutes, he articulates, very inarticulately, the pain we've all felt. I present to you the Überfansch, whose transcendence will justify our existence. » 9/24/09 8:00pm 9/24/09 8:00pm

Seriously, Lidge Is About To Turn The Corner

We didn't get to pay much tribute yesterday to Brad Lidge losing his closer's job already, but hey, it's never too late to show that video from the 2005 NLCS. It's OK to toss this in, it's not rubbing it in, because the Astros won that series. Right? » 4/10/07 12:45pm 4/10/07 12:45pm

Being Brad Lidge

We are accustomed, in sports, to one moment changing everything; it's probably the main reason we watch.

Why Is This Man So Excited?

This is Astros closer Brad Lidge, and in this picture anyway, he's a very excited young man. (It obviously was not taken Monday.) There are many reasons he might be so happy. He could have just closed out an Astros victory. He could have learned that he wasn't going to be a lot of money for his car insurance. Or,… » 10/19/05 5:20pm 10/19/05 5:20pm
