Phillies Now Trying to Lure You to the Ballpark With the Promise of Das Boot

Screen Shot 2014-07-18 at 2.28.02 PM

The Phillies know things are bad right now, and you might need a drink or five to get through watching a game at home. And with that in mind, they’re going to just dive right in to being enablers by handing out 1,000 Das Boots to fans at German Heritage night. Because if you’ve gotta watch the Phils, they’d rather you weren’t sober.

Or, there’s always alumni weekend where you can get a super cheesy Charlie Manuel commemorative print on the occasion of his induction on the Wall of Fame. Because nothing says the good old days like a glossy photoshop job in your hands and the same team on the field.

    I think you’re misguided in your piss and vinegar here, Jim.

    1) I can’t rip them for the giveaway for German heritage night (shit, I wouldn’t mind having a Phillies drinking boot). Their marketing department is trying to get people in the seats. It’s not their fault the team sucks. Plus, they have always had a bunch of heritage nights throughout the stadium.

    2) The Phillies almost always do a good job with events like alumni weekend, closing ceremonies at the Vet, the WS parade, etc. By comparison, the Eagles have historically been awful at stuff like this (they didn’t do anything to honor the closing of the Vet). Sure, they royally mishandled shit canning Charlie last year, but this is a chance for the fans to give him the proper thank you and send off he deserved.

    Have a good weekend.

    I’ve gone to that German Heritage celebration… the only thing mildly german is the stupid dancing. If they are enhancing that, even with a stupid boot, it is a plus.

    McCarthy said fans should pack CBP for Charlie. I’ll be happy to go if Tom buys my tickets. McCarthy has been stealing money for years, he can afford it.
