The Phillies and Braves got rained out the other night which meant plenty of filler programming on the TV. One of the segments had the Phillies players and coaches answer some quirky questions.
The guys were posed the question: "if you could play any one Olympic sport, which would it be?"
Cole Hamels gave the most Cole Hamels answer possible: speed walking.
Here's a great video on speed walking if you're not familiar.
And of course Jonathan Papelbon said something about shooting guns.
In more serious and exciting news, Cole had an outing down in Florida yesterday and looked fantastic. That could put him on track to return to the Phils rotation next week when they travel to L.A. to take on the Dodgers. This is great news.
