Don't get confused. That was not a pregnancy announcement by Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Dom Brown and the Phillie Phanatic that was posted to Instagram this afternoon. It was a photo from Mexico -- we assume on the team's cruise vacation that fans can go on if they fork over some dough -- illustrating that the Big Green Guy needs to lose some weight.
Not sure if you've heard, but the Phanatic will be spending the entire spring with the team down in Clearwater this spring for the first time ever. Dom thinks this will be a good opportunity for the Phanatic to work off some of that winter weight. Too much butter on his popcorn.
"happy to hear that the Phanatic is going to spring training cause i was with him in Mexico on the Phancation and he needs to lose some weight!"
Those of you making the awesome trip down to Clearwater, Florida this February or March will surely want to keep your eyes peeled for bad drivers when you're getting to and from the ball park.
Not in the sense that it's a move that remotely affects anything about the current state of the Phillies. It's sad simply because Chooch -- lovable and awesome and wonderful Chooch -- is no longer a Phillie.
Chooch will be remembered for catching Roy Halladay's perfect game and no hitter and that little dribbler down the line in Game 3 of the 2008 World Series. And, of course, dropping to his knees in celebration with Brad Lidge making them World Effin Champions.
After watching John Oliver's segment on them over the weekend, you'd agree there is plenty of nuance involved in the charter school debate. But also that some of them are dirty as all get out. An underground nightclub at a SCHOOL? Jeez. That can't be okay anywhere.
It's a solid segment. But it also took a couple of unneeded digs at the city of Philadelphia, its cuisine, and its sports fans.
That irked the Mayor of Philadelphia and he fought back today on Twitter.
"Agree on charter oversight but English soccer fan who eats fish from newsprint can't judge Eagles fans, cheesesteaks," Jim Kenney tweeted.
Take that you fish-eating Brit!
