This summer feels like one gigantic party. I don't even think we watch games to see if the Phillies are going to win, anymore. We just watch to see what kind of awesome is going to spew from the dugout that evening.
Last night, as you know, it was Cliff Lee. Tonight it may very well be Hunter Pence or Chase Utley or Vance Worley or Ryan Howard or John Mayberry Jr… the possibilities, they are endless.
As such, we trade texts and Tweets, IMs and emails about the Phillies' dominance. Sometimes those exchanges lead to violent car crashes: [6 ABC]
Investigators say 39-year-old Claudio Kuhn of Rose Valley was driving his silver Toyota Camry around 1:30 a.m. when he received a text message from a friend stating "The Phillies won."
While reading the message, police say Kuhn took his eyes off the road while going around a curve and lost control.
The car crashed into a 40 foot tree, knocking it down.
The report goes on to say that speed did play a part- not surprising, because those 40 foot-tall trees rarely just go quietly into the night. But hey, at least the transmission delivered good news. Imagine if the text had read Madson blew it.
H/T to the folks from (@Philsvilleblog) for passing along
