Rollins Motivational Speech, The Anonymous Heckler, Saturday Night Vs. Marlins.

My cousin Marjorie and I was at the Friday Night Home game.  I was her guest in Section 110.  Marjorie is a dedicated Phillies fan.  She has gear from her head to her toes and even brought her glove.   The rain never came either.  We won but the stadium was half full.   Hey fans scream, we screamed.  But Saturday nights game I was viewing from my comfy sectional couch. Again, another half full CBP.  But the end of the game you’re talking 1/4 of fans.  Game was tied in the 10th.  J-Roll  hit the game winning home run beat the Miami Marlins 5-4. He then stated in the post game interview that a person in the stands was yelling at him.  That gave him the incentive to swing at a 2-2 pitch and nail it into the stands and his remarks to the fan after. ( You can read lips) Now remember, Rollins is in the dugout and voice came from the stands many rows above.  Rollins had to have his antenna’s up to hear what the fan said or was the fan heckling him numerous times during the game.  Yes, Rollins can hear correctly and so did the fan.

Rollins stated,

There was some fan in the stands popping off,” Rollins said. “He was right behind our dugout, close enough to yell and piss me off, honestly. It was something pretty ignorant, but it worked.”

BTW, the Fish were swept by the Phillies this weekend.

( Hey Marjorie,  I have the pics from the game, turned out great but I am under the weather at the present. Will upload them shortly.   Must have been all that excitement Friday night.)

Cliff Lee, MLB,, Philadelphia Phillies and Stranglehold by Ted Nugent?

Was I hearing correctly during today’s broadcast of the Phillies and the Brewers? As this is my Sunday ritual, viewing the Phillies and hanging around the house.

Cliff Lee was on the mound today as the starting pitcher. When he batted, “Stranglehold” came on. “Stranglehold” Lyrics Click Link

Seems there is a playlist of music hand-picked  by each player that comes to bat at Citizens Bank Park. Some players have multiple.  I knew that Chase Utley played Kashmir by Zeppelin, but now the entire team has their tunes.   Click Link to view the Play list, quite extensive.

I turned to my son is disbelief and showed him the playlist. He commented, “Really, they play a children’s game Really? He played little league T ball @ 5 years, minors, Double AA,  Triple AAA then majors at 11-12yrs at Cherry Hill National and Cherry Hill Babe Ruth 13- 14 years. He as well is an avid sports fan.

I asked, “If you were a Pro baseball Player what music would you bat to?”  “Nyan Cat, the Techo Cat.” What, please explain.” “No one would take me seriously and I would screw with the pitchers head.. They would show a continuous loop on the screen at Citizen Bank Park.” He showed me the video below. Wow. I did not know the world of Nyan Cat as the video as over 94 million hits.  Incredible.

Myself, I would still stick to Rock and Roll.

BTW,  Phillies won 7-5.  You go Cliff Lee. Keep playing  “Stranglehold.” Please, stay in Philly. Trade rumors up already.
