The Philadelphia baseball blog tournament known as The Phield enters it's elite phase today as the final 16 sites begin to battle it out for supremacy in the regional blogosphere. This very site, PhoulBallz.com, meets its toughest challenge yet, as it faces the #2 seed Phuture Phillies, which is a solid site that features loads of content on the minor leagues.
As I like to do each round, I would like to provide all readers a handful of reasons to get behind PhoulBallz.com. As such, I've inquired with some of moderate celebrity types to provide their endorsements of this site. Here is how that went down...
Seth Jabour (pictured), of the indie rock band Les Savy Fav, (which you might be familiar with from your favorite MLB video game's soundtrack) stated: Phoul Ballz is the grandest, most rootin-tootin blog to ever grace the monitor on my grandma's computer!
Chris, the leader of the lovely Phils blog known as Long Drive, was aggressive with his preference in The Phield tournament: Vote for Phoul Ballz, because if you don't, you are admitting that you are a Mets fan, and thus admitting you are a failure at life."
Mike Krenek, of WOBM AM & Fox Sports 1310's Shore Sports Report, had this to say: If you have an erection lasting longer than 6 hours, consult your doctor...unless you're a Phillies phan discovering PhoulBallz.com for the very first time, then it's totally normal.
Phillies pitching prospect Justin De Fratus (who happened to be warming up yesterday for the Phillies, when Greg Dobbs ended the Phils' spring game against the Astros with a walk-off RBI hit...& pictured) spoke rather highly of PhoulBallz.com, when he said: It's good.
Blue Jays catching prospect Travis D'Arnaud was asked his thoughts on PhoulBallz.com, and his reply was: Oh, yeah. That site is so hot that when Jay says hello to his readers, they should call it a HEAT WAVE.
Lakewood BlueClaws broadcaster Greg Giombarrese is a phine phriend of Phoul Ballz and said the following: PhoulBallz is the phunniest, most phantastic Phillies blog out there. All the most phervent and phanatical phans should make it their phirst stop every day!
So, as you can see, PhoulBallz.com is kind of like the Wu-Tang Clan...it ain't nuttin' to f--- wit'!
