Morning Wood: Breast Feeding

Now, whether that was started by one of the 10,000 or so people who read our Movement post or just some drunk kid repeating a slogan the Phillies’ marketing department was predictably late to pick up on, I do not know. Either way, I may have yipped a little bit when I saw Hunter's Tweet while downing Flyin' Hawaiians in Media. But there are rules for the Let’s Go Eat chant. You can read them right here.

More Sunday morning goodness.

Life is tough being a Phillie…

When I read something like this, my first instinct (disturbingly) is to imagine the reactions of the players on the bus. You just know Cliff Lee was entirely unimpressed with the boob sitch and mumbled something like, “seen better.” And, I’d also imagine an excited Chooch ran through the bus doing his goofy antler ears, Hamels texted Heidi to tell her he didn’t look, Stutes secured the flasher’s digits, and Charlie whipped up some cryptic phrase: “You know, that’s kinda like what I like to call what we call a full set. Hell, like I’d motor… motor… like, motor bike those sonbitches."

Or something like that.

The Phillies won last night, 5-0. Full highlights here.

The D.C. takeover continued- some pics from Ms. CB's father, who was at the game.

Roy Oswalt finally looked like himself again. His fastball averaged 92.2 miles per hour, up significantly from the 90.6 miles per hour he averaged in his last start, on August 13th. He also topped out at over 94 last night. These are good signs.

Tom McCarthy – creepily – was in the middle of talking about J-Roll's™ range to his left when a groundball was hit… forcing him to go to his left. T-Mac does this a lot.

Finally, reader Luke checks in via email:

First Phils game at home, watching with my 3 day old son, L.J.  Eyes open for the first time during the game, Pence goes yard.  He promptly shit himself.  I assured him its OK…we all do.


You better stock up on some extra diapers for October, Luke.

  1. I was sitting in Center field last night and some chic would not stop trying to show Shane her boobs while he was in the field. Shane did not seem to care one bit.

  2. Yup. Was on a bus trip down to the game last night, and it was insane – it was easily 2 or 3 to 1 Phils to Nats fans. Probably higher. The highlight of the night for me was easily the entire row of people out in left field with an enormous “Welcome to Citizen’s Bank Park South” banner. We positively *own* that place.

  3. The owners of the Nationals must secretly love it when the Phillies come to town – they actually sell tickets!
    Question: Do these road sell-outs count toward our streak? I mean, it was practically a home game.
    Citizen’s Bank should sooooooooooooo try to buy the naming rights to that ballpark. That would be awesome.

  4. As a fan that unfortunately does not get CSN Philly (stupid Comcast and CSN Mid Atlantic), I was forced to watch the Nats broadcast and when they started talking about the record crown of 44,xxx people, I thought to myself that the Nats were almost out-attended by a Little League game (almost 42k attended the first PA game in Williamsport), not to mention that 60 of those in attendance were Phillies fans.
    The announcers then proceeded to wonder aloud if they’d get crowds like that when Strassburg returns – chance are they wouldn’t since their record crowds were established by visiting teams fans (previous record was for the Sox).

  5. I was sitting in section 107 right behind the foul pole. I’d never taken part in a Citizens Bank Park South Invasion before and it blew me away to see all the Phillies fans down there. There must have been at least fifteen buses (and that’s only the buses I saw) waiting to take Phillies fans back up to Philly after the game was over.
    There was a lot of protesting when Charlie came out to the mound in the eighth. The majority of Phillies fans in my section seemed to want Oswalt to get at least one more batter to see if he could finish what he started. And Little Roy did not disappoint us.
    It was a lot of fun and the best part was the impromptu performance of High Hopes while everyone was leaving the stadium. Even knowing this already seemed like a home game, I was taken aback by how many people were singing.

  6. @Kate: What a great story about the singing!! LOVE IT! What a tribute to Harry, too! I always make it a point to stay and sing along when I go to home games…

  7. Hey Mazzle Tahv and L’Chayyim to Luke, Mrs. Luke and L.J. on a special true birthday (not the anniversary):
    May the road rise to meet you.
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face.
    And rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
    And when L.J. gets bigger and his wee ears are no longer too delicate you can play him this on the many happy returns to the day:

  8. I was in right field…and responsible for the let’s go eat chants…although they weren’t really chants so much as me by myself screaming it at the top of my lungs….

  9. This was our first trip to CBP South and we were in awe of all the Phils fans there. We were at the left field foul pole and almost our entire section were Phils fans. The best part was Werth getting relentlessly booed every at bat – it rocked.
