Police charge man in Victorino beer incident
Phillies fans hurl insults, projectiles at J.D. Drew
usatoday on the 48,514 Phillies fans in attendance throwing batteries at Drew: "The game was delayed 10 minutes in the eighth after debris landed near Drew in center field."
si.com on the beer thrown at Victorino: "The All-Star outfielder managed to make the grab."
Wow that's a lot of batteries to clean up in only ten minutes, so kudos to Philly's ground crew. But reverse kudos to Philly fans for being such dangerous assholes. The beer at Victorino was done by one single person, and Victorino wasn't even injured, just a lil buzzed, reportedly. It was also thrown by the same guy who threw the beer in the '59 World Series, and Steve Bartman, so there's still only one bad Chicago fan in the entire city. Philly, on the other hand, packs its stadiums to the brim with assholes who bring batteries and IEDs to every single game, putting opposing teams in harms way and leading to rumors of an underground tunnel between Citizens Bank and the Holiday Inn.
