Well, what was to be a day of blogging on the road, turned into a day of being hot and trying not to pass out. It was so hot in Philly, that I didn’t do anything but try to stay cool — many bottles of water and ice cream is what done the trick.
I wanted to mobile blog from the game, but I only posted two pictures and then called it a day. My Blackberry also became so hot, that I just put it away and went to shelter at the Hall of Fame wing to stay cool. Not a good day — sun-burn, red and hot.
Until then, see ya at the park!
Traveling tomorrow to watch the Phillies and Cubs play at Citizens Bank Park. I hope the weather holds since it is about a two hour drive from my house on Long Island. We shall see.
Also, since MLBlogs doesn’t support mobile blogging — unless it does and I am not aware of it — I’ll be posting from the game on my other baseball blog The Baseball Pad.
I hope in the future MLBlogs will support this, so I can post from my Blackberry.
Right now, I’m watching the Mets on SNY and listening to Omar Minaya state his case about the team and his decisions on trades, etc. I think Minaya’s job might be in jeopardy? I’m not impressed with Minaya or Jerry Manuel because the Mets need to make some moves quickly.
Off to Philly!
Unitl then, see ya at Citizens Bank Park!
I received this email the other day from my SportsRadio NY email account. I don’t know if this is a hoax? Or this is real? I almost dropped my Blackberry when I received it, just because the Mets are in a downward slide and to read this makes me wonder.
To Whom It May Concern:
I worked for Hunt Construction. I was a foreman at Citi Field. There are 3 Phillies Jerseys buried in the ball park. As a lifelong Phillies fan, I felt it was my duty to jinx the Mets. I’m not telling you my real name for obvious reasons. The jerseys are:
1. Under the Fanwalk bricks.
2. Jackie Robinson Rotunda in the vicinity of the Ticket Office window.
3. Near the vicinity of the ’47 Shop near right field.
I understand how some may not believe that jerseys are buried beneath Citi Field. Thats ok, I’m not trying to convince people. Take a look at when I posted this on this forum below (LAST SUMMER) This is proof that I’ve been sitting on this for a while.
Unlike the dope that revealed his identity for the Ortiz Jersey thing, nobody will even know who I am. Is this an original prank? No, but who cares? Did you invent every joke you ever told?? When your at Citi Field, say hi to the Burrell, Howard, and Utley jerseys beneath your feet.
Until then, see ya at Citifield!
