Yesterday at the Carpenter Complex the Phillies were all dressed up for a photo shoot with the World Series trophy. The photo will be used in the Phillies magazine and will be sold the second doors open on April 5th or online at Phillies.com; Todd Zolecki of The Zo Zone has the pics here. My favorite has to be Chad Durbin and his geriatric sunglasses. Shouldn’t someone put those on Moyer?
In other news the Phillies have already sold over 2.5 million tickets for 2009 so it looks like Phillies games will no longer be a gameday decision this year, which fucking sucks. I am used to being able to just drive to The Bank, without calling ahead of time, and just buying tickets to see the Phils. I went to over 30 games last year and now it doesn’t seem like that will be the case this year. I might actually have to resort to…dare I say it…scalpers. I FUCKING HATE SCALPERS! I wish I had a picture but one time there was actually a scalper with a cardboard sign that simply read “who sellin tickets” I don’t wanna be the grammar police or anything but come on, have some pride in your work sir, or lack thereof.
Corey just picked up his tickets for 2009 and they have upgraded the look a bit, adding a 2008 World (Fucking) Champions picture in the corner of them. Here is the pic:
