You’ve done it.

You’ve staked your flag with a picture of your own smirking face on the peak of intelligence; You’ve scaled the mountains of baseball knowledge and social media to become the smartest Phillies fan in the world.

But how will people know?  How can they possibly tell the scale of your grand, patronizing smarts, unless you harp on them for thinking the Phillies could have won?

But wait! Aren’t you a Phillies fan? Shouldn’t you be rooting for the team?

No way! You may be a Phillies fan, but you’re a smart, cool Phillies fan – not one of these mindless sheep who hope the team does well and wanted them to win today like a bunch of fucking saps.

Look at them, over there.  Sapping it up.  They probably have both hands on the keyboard, not even writing anything intelligent enough to jack off to while simultaneously typing.  How primitive. Read more »

So many players to choose from this year!  Well, five; like every other year.

But still, the decision still has to be made, and you could just vote for all of them at some point, but why take the coward’s way out when you can use any of these fine reasons that are not secretly insults.

You like being told what to do by Nationals fans.

You play fast and loose with the rules too, when it comes to facial hair.

You enjoy the sound of the Nationals’ broadcast team tongue-bathing their entire lineup.

Ruben Amaro is looking to buy this year – that’s what we’re hearing from the rumor mill as the deadline approaches and the Phillies have taken 6 of their last eight games, including four from the two teams ahead of them in the NL East standings. It’s good to see, it feels good when your team wins, they are looking stronger lately, okay. Maybe they have a chance to put a run together and storm into first place with about half a season to play. We’ve all read about how the Braves and the Nationals have been playing around .500 ball since Atlanta won 12 of 13 to begin the season. Hell, the Mets collapsed in 2007 and the Phillies were hot enough to take advantage, right? The Rockies that same year got hot enough to force a tie-breaker, squeak into the playoffs after 163 games, sweep the NLD&CS before getting leveled by the Red Sox.

So I was down in Sea Isle this past 4th of July weekend and I jumped over to Wildwood for a few hours and to my surprise they actually had a few boardwalk games with some Phillies flavor.

JIMMY ROLLINS POP UP STRIKER

They give you a bat mallet and the guy who runs the game calls out different scenerios right before you hit. I heard him go, “FIRST AND THIRD NO OUTS, FIRST PITCH COMING!” and the contestant whacks the ball as hard as he can. If you hit Rollins’s head on a, “FIRST PITCH AFTER A FOUR PITCH WALK PREVIOUS AT BAT!” you win a giant stuffed unicorn (Kendrick reference?)

MICHAEL YOUNG 3RD BASE TOSS

This game seemed like a lot of fun. There were so many chances to win. Mostly anywhere you threw the baseball, it went past Michael Young. I won a Cody Ashe framed mirror.

Nice work Wildwood!
