Another sign of the End of Days for the Phillies.
Earlier today, 97.5 updated its message on several electronic billboards it has control of around the city. Usually, the digital signs say things like Mike Missanelli on-air now! or contain similar programming announcements.
On some of its billboards, 97.5 has put up messaging that takes aim at J-Roll™. Too far? Maybe a little, but, judging by the Tweets and comments seen here, the sentiment isn’t much different from what most of you think.
Joe DeCamara, the station’s assistant program director, told me the billboards are being mostly well received: “We’ve gotten calls from people who saw it. I think it’s resonating with fans who are disgusted with Jimmy’s lack of effort yesterday.”
The ones with the Rollins message are in the following locations and will remain up for most of the day: 95 North near Broad St (near the stadiums), 76 West near the Walt Whitman Bridge, 95 South near Ashburner St., 95 South near Madison St., Rt 30 Admiral Wilson Blvd., Rt 30 near Rout 130, PA Turnpike Eastbound near Butler Pike and 76 West near Dickinson St.
Remember when rooting for the Phillies was, you know, fun?
