A.J. Daulerio of Deadspin previews the Phillies season and brings back memories of Philly baseball of yore:
By the time the third inning rolled around, Vet Stadium’s upper deck levels had turned into a Larry Clark film: tin foil bowls being inconspicuously smoked, passed out girls getting felt up, lackluster fistfights, cascading vomit — just a glorious time.
When we talk about the magic of baseball in springtime, that’s exactly what I have in mind. See you at the ballpark!
UPDATE: Best line is in the comments:
“Dude, we’re up 13-2 in the 9th inning.”
“They scored two runs? BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!”
That must mean it’s time for an E-A-G-L-E-S chant.
