The holidays are rapidly approaching and that means you'll need some gifts for the Philly sports fan in your life (assuming they haven't been naughty this year and thrown a bottle at Ryan Howard or flipped the double bird at a Sixers game).
So, with the help of some CSNPhilly colleagues, we've put together a handy shopping list for you. Enjoy.
A new 65-inch 4K TV -- for when you throw the remote through your current television after Nelson Agholor drops another stupid pass (But no, really, we're rooting for Nelson).
Sonos PLAYBAR surround sound -- for when you really want to hear fans boo Robert Covington while sitting in the comfort of your own living room.
Radar detector -- for when you don't want to get pulled over on the Walt Whitman Bridge (customers who purchased this also purchased a gun rack).
Shirley Temple maker -- for the basketball fan in your life with a discerning palate.
DeLorean -- for the Flyers fan in your life who constantly wants to go back to 1975.
Grilled Cheese Maker - best kept on the top shelf.
Samsung Virtual Reality Headset -- for when Phillies fans want a glimpse of the world Ruben Amaro Jr. was living in.
Flyers Santa Sack (SUITE tickets) -- so you can get a closer look at Ghost in the press box.
A Food Processor -- just trust us.
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.
Can't say we're super familiar with the work of Don La Greca, whose bio says he's a co-host on the Michael Kay Show on ESPN Radio, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say he's either a total joy to listen to or absolutely a chainsaw to your ears.
One or the other, tough to say.
But it's hard to argue with the impressiveness of the rant he went on regarding the New York Giants offensive line the other day.
The stats he quotes are just hard to argue with in any capacity.
Regardless of how you feel about advanced stats, I thinkk we can all agree the Eagles D-Line is gonna go all Pythagoras on the Eli this weekend.
