Can't Sidestep Reality, Phils Fans
Yes, the douchebag who doused Victorino with a beer at Wrigley last night should receive a punishment on par with a bar-of-soap-in-long-sock beating. Uncalled for. Pathetic. On. And on. (And, look at him: He should have "Prick" tattooed across his forehead and hang out with Kade, for crissake.)
But all you Phillies fans still harping on it, just one thing: How about our city go a couple homestands without a fatal fan beating in the parking lot near the stadium bar before we get all holier than thou? Because that wasn't J.D. Drew battery night or Santa snowball chuckin or Michael Irvin taunting; that was an eternal stain on our reputations.
So, please stop asking me to join your "Ban Beer Tosser From Wrigley" Facebook groups unless you launch a "Ban Fishtown Bar Bus Trips From Citizens Bank Park" group as well.
