The buzz before the Phillies huge win over the Nationals tonight in Philadelphia was the appearance of Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin at Pat Burrell's favorite pick up spot, the Irish Pub. We're told she received the royal Philly treatment and was showered with boos as well as chants of "Sarah go home!" Also in attendence at the bar was the head man of the Flyers and Sixers, Comcast-Spectacor Chairman Ed Snider. It hasn't been confirmed yet but Ed was reportedly trying to recruit Mrs. Palin to give Simon, Scottie, and Braydon a ride home from practice tomorrow at the Spectrum.
Rumor has it her next stop is Flushing, New York to help support the Mets post season trip to nowhere.
