Pretty good weekend for your Fightin' Phils over at Citizens Bank Park as they helped alleviate the pain of an opening series sweep at the hands of the Brewers by going out and winning three straight of their own over the Miami Marlins. And while the Marlins may have been pushovers in the past, they've got a couple of young staring pitchers with great promise, so the Phils sweeping the Fish out of town is encouraging news.
The fun story on Saturday night, which we wrote about early yesterday morning, was Jimmy Rollins' walkoff homer in extras, after which he "politely" told a fan who was apparently heckling him all game to "shut the F up."
But we hadn't seen the GIF of said statement to said fan at that point and-- woo boy! -- is it awesome.
Dan McQuade over at Philly Mag put together a series of GIFs of Jimmy's swagtastic bat flip and words to the fan for a recap post this morning. It is my favorite GIF of the season thus far and may stay in that top position for quite a long time.
Fantastic work all around.
