10 Days Out: It's Not Too Late to Run with Us at MuckRuckus MS Philly

10 Days Out: It's Not Too Late to Run with Us at MuckRuckus MS Philly

We're just ten days out from our June 9th running of the MuckRuckus MS Philly event in Newtown Square, PA. Are you ready to run five miles and get muddy with us? It's not too late to sign up and join team and run with us to support the MS Society. And, of course, to enjoy a few cold beers in celebration after we're all finished.

With ten days left to prepare, I'd say you've still got a pretty decent (really good) chance of beating me in the race. I've had some sore muscles from working out over the past few weeks, but I haven't been all that great about actually running five miles. Although I'm pretty sure a couple of the ladies who have joined our team will leave you/me in their dust... or mud. I guess if it's muddy there won't be much dust.

If for whatever reason you can't make it out to run, you can certainly try and meet up with us after the event to pat us on the back. If you need more details on the event, click here. And don't hesitate to reach out with any questions. But remember, we're signed up for the 1:00 pm wave on Saturday, so just join the block closest to that time and we'll have you manually moved into our group.

We're really looking to make a big push over the next 10 days to help our team reach our goal. Every little donation helps and every new runner signed up to join us REALLY helps.

And finally, if you can DONATE to help support our team in any increment, it would be greatly appreciated and go to a great cause.

The Phillie Phanatic got a date with a Dodgers reporter, spilled all over her


The Phillie Phanatic got a date with a Dodgers reporter, spilled all over her

The Phillie Phanatic is nothing if not persistent. 

When he has his big bug eyes set on something, he goes to great length to make it happen.

So it was with great joy we got to see his wooing of Los Angeles Dodgers' reporter Alanna Rizzo paid off on Thursday -- at least in the short term.

Prior to today's matinee with the Dodgers, the Phillies broadcast showed the Phanatic setting up a lovely, romantic setting on the field at Citizens Bank Park for a date with Alanna.

"He knows exactly how to get to a ladies' heart," Phillies play-by-play man Tom McCarthy said.

But then the Phanatic had to go screw it up like the goof that he is and spilled his beverage all over his date.

We're hoping that Phyllis does not see this clip, for everyone's sake. But part of us thinks it may have all been a ploy to punk the opposing team's media member. Maybe the Phanatic is smarter than we all think and had that up his sleeve all along.

"Do they have to put him in a cage when they take a flight," John Kruk wondered aloud.

Good question.
