Elvis Burrell Collects His World Series Medallion
Posted by at 1:25 pm ET 15 Comments

Pat Burrell’s prized English Bulldog, Elvis, wasn’t around back in April when his father came to Citizens Bank Park to collect his jewelry for winning the 2008 World Series. So yesterday, prior to the final game of the series vs. Pat’s new team, Phillies director of team travel Frank Coppenbarger awarded Elvis with his very own 2008 World Series ring. Well, it’s not really a “ring”, because dogs don’t have fingers, silly! Rather, it’s the top half of the ring lopped off and glued onto a sterling silver plate that they got engraved at the Things Remembered kiosk in the mall, and it’s easily the coolest damn dog collar accessory in the history of dog collar accessories.

After the jump, watch as Elvis is presented with his 2008 World Series medallion:

haha, the Rays must feel like shit watching a cot damn dog stumble around their locker room sporting something that they tried so hard to get. But hey, that “2008 AL Champs” ring counts for something, right?

RIGHT?

  • Chris

    That is AWESOME!

  • Here Come Da Judge

    haha so good

  • Jim McCloskey

    very funny. That must be a real kick in the balls to all of the Rays who got their asses kicked last year

  • Pete

    Elvis is seriously the best dog ever! I’d trade Rollins, Bruntlett, and Chris Wheeler to get him back here.

    The pooch is a legend, what can I say.

  • Jocksniffer

    The Phillies are a class organization. This is fucking great.

    Elvis the dog is a ledgend in Philadelphia. well deserving of the ring. it looks great on him.

    This doesn’t surprise me. After all, Adam Eaton got a ring and he was the biggest fucking dog on the team.

    Exactly…that bastard Eaton…i’d rather a hot dog vendor sporting a WFC ring rather than Eaton.

    That was awesome… I saw that during the game, and just laughed my ass off. ELVIS rocks, that’s official. I can’t wait till Burrell signs his one day contract with the PHILS, and retires with us. Hopefully then becomes a Sports Caster. This way we can see ELVIS a ton of times.

    @PhiPhan5648

    ehh, how long do you expect that dog to live?

  • Lynniemac

    PhiPhan, if I may:

    @Tug:
    Forever.

  • PhiPhan5648

    @Lynniemac:

    Exactly.

  • J Train

    Hey Elvis,

    How does it feel to be a World Fucking Champion?
