No one said you had to be smart to be a Pat Burrell fan
Posted by at 10:06 am ET 21 Comments

If you’re gonna go through the trouble of drawing up a sign for your favorite player on poster board, and then take that sign to the game in hopes of getting on TV, wouldn’t you at least make sure you spelled that player’s name correctly? Or double-check to make sure the uniform number you’re putting on there is right?

Well meet this woman, who didn’t bother with either of those things:

Hey lady, there are two L’s in Burrell. And he hasn’t worn ’33′ on his jersey since his rookie year with the Phillies back in 2000. I have no idea what the rest of that horrible sign says, but I guarantee you there are at least three more grammatical errors.

Do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY FROM THE POSTER BOARD, LADY.

    Oh, that is just awful. Especially in this age of instant info. Idiots.

  • Jdashdog

    The other L is on her forehead

    HAHAHAHA @Jdashdog! GOT ‘ER!

  • Jocksniffer

    Maybe she was rockin’ around Muffin’s cock while she was making that sign.

  • will.H

    maybe her husband was the infamous hamles guy

    Holy. Crap.

    How can you claim to be a Phillies fan and not know that Pat’s # was 5? That is a major violation. She should have to turn in all of her Phillies gear to the Phanatic.

    she’s a fan of rolling rock, and has been in mourning since its takeover.

    can’t defend the spelling error.

    obviously Pat the Bat went deep on these 4 golden girls during his rookie season right before they retired to the greater Tampa metro area. The memory is the first thing to go but number 33 will be burned into the memories of this quartet of old whores for (what little is left) of a lifetime.

  • tofoomeister

    Maybe it’s because Pat is 33 years old….no, I’ve gotta stop, that sign is indefensible.

  • tofoomeister

    (also Pat doesn’t turn 33 until October 10th)

  • PhiPhan5648

    I saw those people on the broadcast yesterday, and was speechless as to what I would say about them. The missed “L”, the wrong number. I just couldn’t fathom how epically they’d failed.

  • MP

    Pat’s old number back in the day was 33 WAY back in the early days – maybe they wern’t aware of Pat’s number change…10 year later.

  • Zach

    Obviously I don’t know what the sign said, but I see no way for the apostrophe in that <3 's to be correct. It must be possessive but there is no more room on the sign to complete the phrase.
    One must conclude that it is a typical example of the "oh, shit, here comes an 's' " apostrophe.

  • doubleh

    Maybe they were fans of Pat from when he was with the Clearwater Phils? Grasping at straws here, but obviously, they aren’t real Phillies fans…probably only fans of the minor league teams.

  • will.H

    doubleh my guess is.. shes a fan of pats fleshpipe.

    too vulgar?

  • CarlosBeltransexual

    Those two were also doing a horrifying rain dance when Mayberry slapped his homer.

  • doubleh

    will.H: Well, more or less that’s what I was getting at in my reply, but you just cut right through the BS…haha. Nothing’s ever too vulgar for me.

  • Here Come Da Judge

    burrel was good but i think rayoul ibanes is a better left fielder

  • http://phillieslongdrive.wordpress.com/ Tug Haines

    I’m willing to bet she rocks around the cock.

  • Ted

    Something tells me he wouldn’t have noticed the incorrect spelling.
