Fox News Covers Phillies Vomit Mishap

I'm sure nobody missed the story last week about Matthew Clemens, AKA- Vomit Boy, the man who was acting abusive at a Phillies game then had a dispute with off-duty polce captain, Michael Vangelo. Reportedly, Clemens and a friend were drunk while using foul language and spitting, when Vangelo initially complained to security. The friend was ejected, but Clemens stayed behind and proceeded to force himself to vomit onto Vangelo and his 11-year-old daughter. Nearby fans then subdued Clemens until he was removed from the park. Clemens was arrested and charged with assault, reckless endangerment and related charges.

On a recent episode of Fox News Channel's nightly comedic round table program Red Eye, panelists discussed the mishap at Citizens Bank Park. Have a look at that clip.



Highlights of the segment include the go-to mention of Santa Claus being pelted with snow balls decades ago, the host, Greg Gutfeld, referring to Clemens as an "A-hole" and a "fat piece of s***", as well as the widely popular Lady Gaga impression by the Phillie Phanatic.

Other quotables from the clip include panelists stating the following...to answer Gutfeld's question, "What's wrong with Philadelphia?"
"Philadelphia's a great drinking town."
"I think it's kind of impressive to have that kind of vomit aim."
"They're lucky they only walked out with puke on them."

Gutfeld later proclaimed that, "Nothing comes out of (Philadelphia) that's any good. You just hear bad things."

If they weren't trying to be funny, I might take offense and be bothered by the closed mindedness, but this is a program hidden in a nightly 3am time slot, so I'll take it easy on them. They just want attention and who can blame them? Poking fun at certain people will get folks talking about the show, as you see here on PhoulBallz.com. Red Eye is mainly a funny show and I can forgive the panel for being lazy and Philly-ist with their commentary. Many phans should be immune to preconceived notions relating to them, from the national media, by now anyway. However, if you ever happen to see Gutfeld or his imbecile side kick Bill Schulz, perhaps you'll feel a desire to give them a new story to tell, so they can switch gears from snow balls and throw-up...flash them a smile to show them the error of their ways. Then pass gas on them, break something and holler, "Philly in the house!" Let them know that Philadelphia phans' wild nature is harder to control than Ben Roethlisberger's sexual urges and they should watch who they poke fun at.

On a more serious note, Citizens Bank Park is equipped with a system where phans can send text messages about unruly fans and their locations. These messages will be received by the staff at the park and will garner a reply. Security will then be dispatched to deal with the issue. The number to report improper behavior is short code 69050.

Rappers in Phillies Caps

Weekend greetings to you phine pholks out there. Today's post features pictures of rappers wearing Phillies caps. Why rappers in Phillies caps, you ask? Because... Any other questions? We will start things off properly by going with a highly recognizable hip hop star. 50 Cent stays constantly relavant by consistantly creating radio friendly material to help sell (G) units, while he "keeps it real" by still rapping about the thug life he lived before becoming the 2nd highest earning black entertainer in America. 50 is seen here in a recent interview rocking a throw-back Phillies cap. Next up we'll use a throw-back screen cap from what may be the very first major appearance by a rapper wearing Phillies gear. Chuck D, of legendary rap group Public Enemy, wore a Phillies cap in the music video for rap anthem Fight The Power in 1989. The song was the lead single from the soundtrack for Spike Lee's film Do The Right Thing . Next up we'll go with some home gro

McGwire Stays Phony, Despite Admitting Drug Use

Mark McGwire made an effort to publicly come clean today, admitting to the world that he took performance enhancing drugs during his playing career. Steroids and human growth hormones were among the drugs that McGwire admitted to using. MLB Network featured a one on one interview with Bob Costas and McGwire on Monday evening. The broadcast was virtually garbage, thanks to McGwire. Ahead is a list of quotes from McGwire's interview. McGwire repeatedly stated his point of view that there were no dishonorable intentions involved when taking steroids, and that he was merely using them as a means to recover from varying ailments. When asked if he felt like he cheated... "As I look back now...I can see how people would say that. As far as the talent goes and the hand-eye coordination, the ability, the genetics I was given...I don't see it." "I did not take this for any strength purposes." Denial. Read on for similar B.S. He whined about the abuse he'
