Due to the success of the World Champion Phillies, knuckleheads who never watched the team before have all of a sudden popped up out of nowhere. They go to Citizens Bank Park, drink like fish, and boo players for inappropriate reasons. The sport is now less enjoyable because of these jabronies. Where were you when Steve Jeltz played shortstop? Go away! Please!

The coverage is also terrible. The whole Chickie and Pete's postgame show on Sundays is troubling. Comcast is not much better with their bloated panel, but PHL17 is just lowbrow on so many levels!

Hey man, don't blame me. I think baseball sucks and haven't watched or gone since the early 80's. Now as for football - when did it become a good idea to bring children and women to the games?

Men have few "men only" venues as it is so it is both disheartening to see this trend and distressing to see what the dregs who do attend the games subject the innocents to. Then again, their fathers/husbands/bfs should know better in the first place...

I find I'm watching the Phillies more than last year, because I just happen to remember there is a game on at that time, and I happen to turn on the tv. Also, this is one of the things that comes with any team winning a championship of any type; they get more fans. And if you really like the phillies you should also be happy, because the phillies are definitely benefiting from this financially. So, even though there a lot of band wagon fans out there now for the phillies, just think of it as a strong philly spirit than there was before.

how do you distinguish the "new" fans with the "old" fans?

The only difference is that the old fans boo for ANY reason, not just inappropiate reasons.

Are they still doing the E-A-G-L-E-S chants at the baseball games as much?

I beg to differ. We know the sport and we do not boo when someone goes 0 for 4. We stand by players when they slump. We hung in there with Von Hayes when he struggled. What a streaky player he was. But, he was cool. Actually, better than the overrated Burrell who the fans started rooting for in his last year. If you ask me he should have waived his no trade clause and been shipped out of here in 06. And, the way this area treated Abreu is criminal! Eskin is at fault as well as the bandwagon fans.
I will never set foot in Chickie and Pete's. A friend suggested going there and I threw such a tantrum that he wigged out on me and I told him to stick it and go the game by himself. We have not spoken since and If he does not call me, I am not calling him


Last week when I checked Bobby was hitting .295 and hit his 200th career hr. The Phillies should have given him a ring even though he has not been on the team since late 06. He set the stage!

Funny you mentioned Von Hayes. He's the manager with the Lancaster Barnstormers out here and he's doing a great job. A friend of mine's son won a contest and got to visit the team and received the grand tour. They said Hayes couldn't have been any nicer to their son. He even allowed him to present the line up card with him at home plate. He was and still is a good guy.
