DK Jr., quit interfering with the baseball game!
Remember when we’d have to watch the news closely for funny stuff happening in the background? Well, apparently nowadays the local news is just content to make the goofy stuff in the background the main story. (Maybe it’s in the wake of the “Fucking Amazing” post-Flyers interview earlier this year.) Above, a bartender shakes her ass for the camera at around midnight last night.
This is way more informative than what’s usually on Fox 29, and is way more interesting now that Kerri-Lee Halkett is leaving.
This question is actually unanswerable, as the broadcast cut away from the dugout in order to show something much less important (a Raúl Ibáñez at-bat) than the Mike Sweeney Hug Parade. But we do have photographic evidence of no less than four hugs after Sweeney’s first homer as a Phillie Sunday afternoon, of (clockwise from top left) Jayson Werth, Jimmy Rollins, bench coach Pete Mackanin and, of course, Domonic Brown.
There’s another one after the jump.
Per everyone on Twitter, Ryan Howard is headed to the DL. That makes six regular position players to land on the disabled list for the Phillies this year; only Jayson Werth and Raul Ibanez have escaped injury. John Mayberry Jr. has been called up to take Howard’s place on the active roster.
Do you guys think Jeff Garcia can play first base?
Apparently, the Cubs are so bad the team needs to get puppets to fill out the Wrigley seats. If the Phillies keep playing like they have in this series, however, CBP will be 100 percent puppets by September.
It’s awful nice of that woman to hold the binoculars for the puppet, of course. Incidentally, Jon Miller thought this puppet looked like Ernie (he meant Bert, I guess). This puppet is actually closer to Snuffleupagus.
Keep calm, everybody! Domonic Brown left in the first inning of the Futures Game yesterday with a tight hamstring but it’s nothing serious.
Now we can marvel at what he did while in the game: Get the game-winning RBI despite not even playing a full inning. (C’mon, you guys remember that stat, right? It was even on the backs of baseball cards in the 80s!) Is there anything Dom Brown can’t do?
He only got one on screen, but it still counts! That’s our second double middle finger in under a week. I hope the players start doing it as a celebration soon.
