What the Utley?


New Yorkers must not read the Phoul Ballz Phillies blog. Perhaps the 1260AM Yankees blogger, Charod, can pass the message along to Yankees fans that Chase Utley is ABOVE THE BOO. I get the whole rivalry thing. Jeter gets booed in Boston, and that whole deal…White Sox and Cubs are booed at one another’s parks also, but certain guys are above the boo.

Utley, not used to hearing jeers, due to his saint-like, Cal Junior-esque status, reacted in a manner that was out of character, during introductions at the MLB all star homerun derby, last night. He quickly forgot about the microphone on his jersey & the camera in his face and jokingly said an expletive directed right back at the NYC crowd. I am here to set the record straight. The national reports of Utley swearing on the live broadcast are incorrect. Sure, it sounded like the F-word. However, Chase Utley has a different style…you should recognize it. When Chase Utley uses that word, it starts with a “Ph”. Don’t get it twisted.

The boos should be louder than ever during tonight’s All star game at Yankee Stadium. Yankees fans, I don’t phreakin’ blame you, but while Utley has now clinched his permanent boo-berth in NYC for years to come, he has also clinched his cheer pass throughout the rest of baseball. Boston? They’re going to LOVE Chase Utley for cursing at the Yankees' crowd. Oakland and Anaheim? Mmm-hmm…they’ll like a guy who tells New Yorkers what’s up. Cleveland, Baltimore, Chicago…? The list goes on. Chase Utley is likely now the most popular National Leaguer in American League baseball cities, except one…and it’s all phuck’n good.

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best.
