– Things that are totally not shocking: [Philly.com]

According to SportsOneSource, a Maine firm that monitors the sale of sports-related merchandise at outlets other than ballparks, the purchase of Phillies-related products has declined by 60 percent.

“They’re still No. 2 behind the Yankees,” Matt Powell, the company’s chief retail analyst, said Friday. “But their share of the market has fallen from 16.2 percent to 8.9.”

Even at the ballpark, though the team does not release such figures, Phils officials conceded they’re selling less of practically everything but the quirky Phanatic caps and Carlos Ruiz merchandise.

 

– Melky Cabrera created a fake website to get out of his 50-game suspension. It didn’t work.

– Paulina Gretzky tweeted a photo of her ass.

– Finally, NBC and Philly Media Network continue to pimp out Sheena Parveen for the sake of viewers and page views (pot, kettle).

Last week, Sheena was on the cover of the Daily News. On Sunday? A section of the Inquirer. And a web-exclusive video. If this doesn’t feel like the start of every Girls Gone Wild video ever, I don’t know what does. Jump it to see what I’m talking about.

  1. Considering the current and most likely future state of state of Philly sports, I’d be totally cool with you revamping the site into a blog devoted solely to Paulina Gretzky’s unabashed sluttiness.

  2. I’m with Matt.
    Also, Dom Brown’s ‘dive’ this weekend was the most sad, pathetic thing ever. I like what Al was saying this morning on WIP about sitting him for the rest of the year. Because every time he plays, his trade value plummets.

  3. 1) that swimmer is a homo;
    2) homer looks drunk & is a loser;
    3) tommy Greene can throw back the cold beer & looks like he can still play while coked up in that pic;
    4) shocked no richie boating with the cup post;
    5) enough with ch 10 promoting that indian weather chick who looks like she has a smelly pussy

  4. Brown is friggin’ terrible. Wasn’t he sent home from some summer league in the Dominican Republic a few years ago for being too full of himself and refusing to play or listen to coaches or something? Sounds like a mental midget. Luzinski was more graceful.

  5. Every single commenter on this chain makes me want to leave humanity behind and live in a cave for the rest of my life.

  6. Dom Brown is the worst “baseball player” I’ve ever seen, and possibly the worst professional athlete. Ruben should be fired for making this guy a paid professional.
