Dear Baseball fans
Dear Baseball fans,
I truly do not care about your favorite MLB team. If you are a Phillie's Phan, I really don't care about your team (same goes if you like the Philadelphia Eagles). Perhaps I'm the grinch, but I don't like your team dear Phillies Phans during the regular season, not even when I have Hall of Fame or lower level seats. Sure, I can tolerate a Phillies game if it means I get cotton candy and a delicious pulled pork sandwich, but don't expect me to care about the game or even to want to watch all of it. I do like the Philly Phanatic. He, the cotton candy and pulled pork sandwich are the only things I like about baseball.
For the past too long, my Facebook page has been flooded with stupid comments relating to the Phillies games. Seriously, if you are that excited about the game and need to comment excessively about it while it's happening, invite some friends over to watch it with you. My husband who loves his Phillies is even irritated by the overzealous posting every 5 minutes Phillies Phans.
Dodgers, I'm not happy with you. You could have spared me from being subjected to the World Series and a pack of happy Phillies fans. But no, you let me down. I rooted for you for a few games much to the irritation of my husband, but you didn't pull out a win. Instead I got to witness the overzealous joy of Phillies Phans. Thanks, Dodgers. Two years in a row now you have let me down.
Yankees, I'm counting on you now. Win tonight and please quiet the Phillies Phans on Facebook for me next week.
And in case you are wondering, I do have a few teams that I support with rabid enthusiasm. I love my girls' soccer teams and the Philadelphia Flyers. And yes, if the Flyers were in the Stanley Cup, I can honestly say that I would not be one of those annoying overzealous Facebook posters.
Your Unapologetic Anti-baseball Fan
