My Hunger Strike is quickly approaching Day 3
Posted by at 9:09 am ET 75 Comments

Hunger Strike: Hour 40 — The Phillies didn’t score again last night (obvs), which means that I have not eaten in nearly 3 days.  The last time I had any food whatsoever was Wednesday evening around 5:15.  The Phillies are literally trying to kill me.  Literally. I’m hungy.

    Dancing away my hunger pains…

  • Matt P.

    I only had a bowl of cereal for breakfast. I am FAMISHED. Oh look, Memorial Day Weekend donuts in the office kitchen!!!

  • dUb-iLL

    You guys try these new bagel twists from Dunkin’ Donuts. Shits are crazy ass good.

  • Muscles
  • bigmyc

    Well, that probably explains your, ahem, betrayal of me and my attempt at stirring up the ant pharm….

    Speaking of that, you know what I’d like right now?..a hot, juicy cheeseburger. A cheesey, melty mound of meaty goodness. With a side of crinkly cut, maybe crab fries.

    Mmmmm. That’s what I’m gonna get.

    Tony Lukes

  • dUb-iLL

    5 Guys cheeseburger with ketchup, mayo, and Fried Onions and a shopping bag full of fries on the side.

  • Howard Eskin


  • ScottRuffcorn

    good dog burger

  • will.H

    Bob’s Diner

  • Phillie Phantics Grundle

    Meech are you including no beer in the hunger strike? If so i really feel bad for you.

  • dUb-iLL


    Good f’n call. The cheese inside just oozes out. I like getting it all over the shoestring fries (Sweet potato and Regular Potato mix) Sooo Gooodddd!

  • Muscles
  • ScottRuffcorn


    They actually have a menu there but I’ve never looked at it. I get the same thing every f’n time. Good Dog burger medium well. Plus they got some cute waitress type things with tattoos and studded belts.

  • Adam Eaton

    Meech, I’m pulling for you buddy. I’m proud of you for doing this. I really hope the Phillies offense hears about this and makes it all go away.

  • Jdashdog

  • will.H


  • CarlosBeltransexual

    On the positive side, if Meech dies, it’s likely we will see many, many more chapters to the Phillies Serial Drama.

  • maria

    If Meech doesn’t post or twitter anything tonight, check his mom’s basement and see if he’s still alive. That’s where all bloggers live, right?

  • Beef

    Was Fat Joe Blanton participating in this fuckin game too?

  • what the hell am i reading here?

    Meech, if you keep it up long enough, maybe your act will get old and you’ll be replaced by paint-drinking pete


    Mohandas Gandhi also employed this method with much success after the Calcutta Brahmins went 0-10 to open the Bengali wooden bat league in 1944.

    Krispy Kreme.

  • fuck the mets

    Yo meech, eat a fucking sandwich or something, we haven’t scored since you stopped eating

  • Muscles
  • Nikita

    Well – at least you’ll be in swimsuit shape just in time for Memorial Day!

    seriously, at least have some soup and fruit juices, they don’t count as real food

  • FlyinHawaiianPizza

    “…movin’ my feet some my stomach won’t hurt. I’m kinda like Jesus, but not in a sacrilegious way…”

  • DP (aka Ralph)

    My cat’s breath smells like cat food.

  • John

    Can somebody get the Phils to play an exhibition amongst themselves so Meech can eat some food?

  • The Killer Zs

    Meech – stay strong. Cause Kendrick in pitching next. It will kill your appetite anyway.

  • maria

    Okay, after that first game against the Pirates, which we won 12-2, it felt too easy. I took wins for granted and I guess I took scoring for granted.

    This is also what I get for calling Seattle’s offense, anemic. Our offense is on life support if not already dead.

  • will.H

    you’re right maria.

    the new phillies need to find a bit of the old phillies.

  • what the hell am i reading here?

    See…the old phillies weren’t concerned about rockin red bull hats, tight MMA tees, and endorsing peanut chews…i hope this little stretch served as a little bit of a wake up call…check the egos at the door, boys

  • JB

    A new series and a new ballpark bring new life to the Phils. We score a run tonight. You eat tonight. This is my favorite story in any news right now.

  • TC

    who is GIDP and why does he hit for the Phils in every inning?

  • Amandah

    I can go days without food as long as there is a stank-ass cock in my mouth.

    And an FYI… Victorino HAS the runs.



  • ThinkRed

    Don’t get too skinny meech. Prince Fielder must mistake you for an after-dinner snack.

  • Steve Jeltz

    I had a good Dog Burger last night – delicious!! And my waitress was really cute with tats all over her. She had a huge tat dedicated to “Mom” on her upper left thigh and one dedicated to “Dad” on her upper right thigh

  • BD


  • Cole Handsome

    I’m jealous. I’ve only gone thirty hours without eating, and it’s my first South Beach trip of the season.

  • Fat Joe Blanton

    I think Fat Joe Blanton should play short stop tonight. He probably will hit less double play balls then Valdez.

  • Ozzie Virgil’s Beard (aka Ralph)

    Puts Chooch’s ice cream cone on head: I’m a unitard!

  • GenericFanGroup

    Lately our best chance at getting runs is eating what Chan Ho Park eats….

  • Phillies Phever Blog

    I don’t know what everyone is complaining about. Utley picked up some runs last week.

  • idiotbox

    dude. just eat. it could be a while.

  • b-burg

    I’m about to go cop one of those cheesesteak pretzels…anyone have one yet? they any good?

  • bigmyc

    A cheesteak pretzel couldn’t be bad. It can’t be possible… can it?

  • Phan Stuck in nyc

    bigmyc – I was thinking the same thing, tell me about this cheesesteak pretzel thang, how is it possible?

  • Watrick

    Oh, they rolled it out big time a couple weeks ago-Philadelphia Pretzel Factory has done it. I haven’t tried one, mostly because I haven’t eaten red meat in 8 years or so, and I can imagine that the Cheesesteak Pretzel wouldn’t be the proper venue to reintroduce my digestive system and red meat.

  • Jdashdog

    Watrick, if you’re ever thinking about using again and you need somebody to talk to I’ll be here for you. I’m a red meat user myself and have no intentions of changing that, but I feel that for someone who can’t use red meat responsibly I can help prevent a relapse or at least be a shoulder to cry on. 8 years ago when we found you in that back alley covered in au jus…well let’s just say it wasn’t pretty.

  • Nikco Riesgo
  • Weems

    I was pounding Krimpets for breakfast. I’ve moved on to Tastyklairs now, Meech. Tonight, I’m looking at Kandy Kakes…

  • Jayson’s beard

    May God forbid, if someone dies from not eating in this site, who will we blame?

  • Uncle Cholly’s Club

    lol at TC. I have no idea but I hope we trade him

  • Chloe

    Jayson Werth, please grow your beard back since shaving it off didn’t help. We need the beard.

  • epiphany1

    I predict the Meech will be able to eat tonight. Phillies will get at the min one run tonight.

  • game5

    Insult to injury, tonites game delayed! Sorry meech. This is where you show how tough you really are.

  • Jacob

    I bet your wife must be angry that you’re not eating, huh?

  • Joe

    Meech has clearly done something to piss off God.

  • Dubee Dubee Du

    Does Howard become Meech’s alltime fave?

  • Dubee Dubee Du


  • game5

    Alas the Phils and meech are denied yet again.

  • jbears

    First and second, no outs. I was actually chanting “meech must eat… meech must eat…” my bad.

  • Ned

    they are playing with no heart. might as well eat meech, its gonna be a while.

  • Ned


  • Captain Awesome

    YOU CAN EAT! RAUUUUUUUUUUUUL!!!! Triple vs. the Marlins and we have ourselves a run!

  • Brandon

    EAT MEECH!!!! EAT!!!

  • Mets Fan


  • ANthony

    hey enjoy a good meal the drought is over

  • PhillyInFLA

    I’m in Florida at Disney’s wide world of sports and the Marlins game is nowhere to be found. WTF?!?!?!

  • phillygator

    That’s because nobody in Florida gives a shit about the Marlins.

  • fdoyle11


  • Watrick

    Anyone else noticed that there were no Game Preview Pictures for this game?

  • Dubee Dubee Du

    Yeah Watrick. Just a coincedence or did the Fightens sacrifice one for the Phightens?
