At Least They’re Not Prima Donnas
Game 1 of the World Series is tonight, but even though my foul mood cloud has finally dissipated, I’m not watching it. Frankly, I don’t really care who wins, though if pressed to choose, I would probably prefer the Rangers.
Instead, I’ve been searching the internet for entertaining tidbits to share with you. Did you know that the comments section of MLB.com articles can be a treasure trove of amusement?
I found this particular comment in response to a column of Phillies news regarding, among other things, Utley’s subpar season and Rollins’ declining numbers. I’ll have to assume that the author is probably a Phillies fan, though they seem not to think much of the majority of the team, and apparently don’t believe in capitalization.:
According to 420philly, the Phillies are a “bunch of pre madonnas”.
Aha! No wonder we got beat in the NLCS – we need to let this team of “pre madonnas” mature into full-fledged Madonnas.
But which Madonna?
Are we talking about the Material Girl?
Or the Spiritual Girl?
And which one would be the better ballplayer?
