We figure that headline should put us near the top of Brett Myers Google searches.
Baseball really isn’t our turf and there are many great bloggers out of the Philly market who’ve been covering the World Series beat.
We pop in every now and then to add to the conversation. There was the video of the guy who got drilled by the Grey Goose bottle and drunk guy falling off the light pole. Oh, and who can forget the mom who threatened another woman with a mini baseball bat at the victory parade.
Our latest find from Phillies Mania is again from the parade.

Brett Myers accomplished a beer trifecta on Friday.
We applaud such behavior.
And as a added bonus to the fans, Myers went into superstar mode where he was spitting beer on the crowd and generally acting like a lead singer without a band.
Lets go to Brett’s own words about himself and alcohol from USA Today, which were printed just days before the victory parade.
“I know there are people out there that think I’m a jerk. There are people out there who think I’m a wife-beater. That will never change,” says Myers, alluding to a 2006 incident in which he was arrested and charged in Boston with assaulting his wife, Kim.
“But you know what, I really don’t care what people think about me. … If people don’t like me, they can deal with it. This is who I am.”
Myers told Nightengale that on the night in question, he and his wife went out to dinner, had a lot to drink and began arguing. While Myers disputed the police report that he hit his wife and dragged her by the hair, he did say this: “When you’re both heavily intoxicated, that stuff does stuff to you you’re not supposed to do.”
Like spit on people because it’s funny?
Congrats Brett, you’re a World Champion (asshole).
