Phather’s Day Loss

June 21, 2010

Highlight of the game:

Via Deadspin:

There is a divine, violent beauty in his tumble that makes it watchable hundreds of times. Maybe he didn’t see the tiny chain-link sign in front of him, or perhaps he just misjudged how high he should have lifted his foot up to step over it. It all happens so quickly, like he’d been assassinated by an imaginary sniper from the 300 level. Off he went, to get an adult beverage, use the restroom, or grab a Schmitter and then, fwoomp, he’s down before Pavano’s looping fastball crosses the plate.

Now, hopefully, this gentlemen doesn’t suffer from vertigo or nerve disorder because that would reveal some long-term problems with his internal wiring and not just a minor setback in the month of June. He’ll get up, shake it off and move on. Hopefully, the horrendous team in the white and red jerseys he paid good money to see so close will eventually do the same.

Also, the littlest Phillies fan on Earth:

He loved me.

Maybe next time, Phightin’s!
