How the hell can you say that Philly fans are better, or smarter, than Boston fans when you haven’t even played a single game at Citizens Bank Park yet? Spring training is held in Florida, not Philly.Whole different ballgame there.
Now please don’t take this the wrong way. Don’t misconstrue what I’m saying as me sticking up for Boston in any way, shape or form. That is not what this is about. This is about my disdain for one of the biggest douche bags in professional baseball, Jonathan Papelbon. Whom I’ve referred to as “Papeldouche” ever since he did that stupid jig in his underwear after the 2007 World Series.
Keep in mind, this is the moron who thought he should’ve been the closer for the 2008 all-star game at Yankee Stadium, not Mo, despite the fact that Mo was a perfect 23-23 in save opportunities and he (Papeldouche) had already blown four. The real kicker was that his own manager (Francona) named Mo the closer.
And you’ve actually got a problem with some dude throwing you his prosthetic leg for an autograph? That’s freaking awesome! That dude risked potentially losing a limb (albeit a fake one), which he needs to walk on, just to get you to write your stupid name on it. You’ve got to be a real jerk not to appreciate that level of fan-dom. If some dude that reads my blogs did that to me, I would be so honored that not only would I write my stupid name on it but I’d also take him out and get him wasted. And I’m not even a millionaire, or even a thousandaire. Hell, I’m not even a hundredaire, but I’d still do it out of respect.
What about the Philly fan who got tasered when he ran on the field in 2010, was he smarter than Boston fans? (watch it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqtPUhYdz6M)
Or how about the Philly fan that intentionally threw up on an 11 yr old girl and her cop father? (read about it here http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/local/Off-Duty-Officer-Daughters-Assaulted-at-Phillies-Game-90983739.html)
A Philly writer once called for fans to throw D batteries at one of your own teammates! (found here, and i don’t care if it was supposed to be humor, we all know most people are dumb and will basically do whatever they’re told to http://deadspin.com/5780992/
You thought a fake leg was bad? At least he wasn’t trying to give you brain damage. I can’t wait to hear what you’ve got to say after you hit a rough patch, blow 3 out of 5 and have to bob and weave your way around a few Duracells yourself.
So if there is anyone who looks stupid here it’s definitely Papelbon. If I were a Boston fan I’d take his comments as a badge of honor.Oh yea, and one more thing Boston, don’t forget…YOU SUCK! GO YANKEES!
