Phillies Nation BellIn our latest edition of Phillies Nation TV, Corey and I come at you from Citizens Bank Park following the Phillies home opener, a 6-2 loss to the Miami Marlins.

We breakdown everything we saw out of the players during the home opener and dig deeper with an entire segment dedicated to the men out in the bullpen. Also, be sure to look for the fan segment with Natalie out at the tailgates in the M Lot across from CBP. Some great predictions and a long bathroom line. You’ll see what I mean. As always, enjoy!

      Manny, what are you, like 77 years old? Those shades look like something a realtor puts out during an open house. I’m going to repeat from the other week: Something mirrored. Aviators, ideally. Or, alternatively, something with a standout rim (Like this: http://exesssunglasses.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/8vfjyyv9.jpg ), which is not my style but would go well with that hipster version of Mr. Roger’s sweater that Pat’s rockin there. LOL

      Just curious, is there some sort of Phillies Nation rule that you guys can’t wear a jacket or something? It looks cold as balls with that gale blowing through the parking lot while Corey & Natalie are just chillin in their short sleeves. Also, at times Natalie had a Cousin It from the Adams Family look going on with her hair all bananas in that hurricane.

      I also liked Corey’s Clark Kent-Superman transformation, going all incognito with the hoodie and hat in the tailgate segment before transforming into the polo-shirted analyst after the game.

      And not to actually make a serious point or anything, but one actual useful suggestion I have is that during segments like the tailgate, I would try to either introduce by name the other writers who you’re interviewing, or include some sort of screen caption letting the audience know who we’re hearing. Helps people distinguish between just random drunkards being interviewed and actual contributors to the site.

        Slightly younger than Pat is my guess. Aviators are so 2010 dude.

        So 2010, you say? Douglas MacArthur thinks otherwise: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/be/DouglasMacArthur.jpg You gonna tell him, the Supreme Commander of the Southwest Pacific Area, who accepted the surrender of Japan, and one of only 5 men to rise to the rank of General of the Army, that his sunglasses are 65 years out of style? That takes some stones, brah.

        “Old [sunglasses] never fade die; they just [remain popular forever as a timeless classic]” – Douglas MacArthur (sort of)

        I actually had a whole post with pictures of famous people from the 40s through today wearing aviators, but it got nixed by the spam filter or something. Which is stupid, since all those actual spammers posting that nonsensical gibberish are posting here on the regular now.

    What’s that old line that’s been used on here???…..”These aren’t your grandfather’s Phillies”…

    Well….. THESE aren’t your grandfather’s Phillies REPORTERS either! Times have indeed changed!

      Sorry to hear that you’ll be missing the Flyers game! haha

      Nights like tonight, for me, are better at home so I can switch channels during the commercial breaks and intermissions.

        Here Here!! I’ll raise my glass to that. Although it will have a beer in it…not some uppity martini such as the one you’re sporting there.

        haha. You don’t get more Alpha Male than James Bond, and that was his drink of choice.

        BTW, Pat just posted that he loves Sydney Crosby on his twitter account. I think he should wear a yellow dunce cap in next week’s edition of PNTV for that blasphemous statement.

        Ha! A yellow dunce cap along with those shades. THAT would be funny!

        And Pat…..really??? How could you??

    Pat actually said ” Am I the only Philadelphian that enjoys watching Sid Crosby play? I’m not ashamed to say that. Dude is great on the ice.”

    he didn’t say he loved him, he said he likes watching him play, and that he’s great on the ice ….. I have a tough time believing any hockey fan would disagree with either of those statements

      He’s a whining cheap shot artist who the league treats gives preferential treatment to. He’s awful to watch because of that, and te holier han thou attitude he takes when anyone gives him the kind of shots that he regularly dishes out. Plus you can totally get him off his game with a little physical play.

      He’s a baby on skates. So, no, I don’t appreciate or enjoy that at all.

    James Bond was haughty and stuck up. “Shaken not stirred” indeed. I know because I learned it from a former fake president.

    In “Stirred”, an episode of The West Wing, President Josiah Bartlet disagrees with Bond in a conversation with Charlie Young:
    Bartlet: Can I tell you what’s messed up about James Bond?
    Young: Nothing.
    Bartlet: Shaken, not stirred, will get you cold water with a dash of gin and dry vermouth. The reason you stir it with a special spoon is so not to chip the ice. James is ordering a weak martini and being snooty about it. :-)
