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.

Who is Your Favorite Willie 'Mays' Hayes?

PhoulBallz.com is wondering which individual who has portrayed Willie "Mays" Hayes is the favorite of the public. Hayes, of course, is the character made famous in the Major League motion picture series. In Major League , Willie "Mays" Hayes was portrayed by budding Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes, who would go on to action movie superstardom. Snipes has starred in major motion pictures like the Blade trilogy, Passenger 57 , Undisputed and many more. Snipes remains an impact Hollywood actor, despite legal troubles related to income tax evasion. Snipes was replaced for the sequel, Major League II when his busy career, and possibly the film's budget, would not allow him to return, by Omar Epps. Another budding actor, Epps had previously worked with director David S. Ward, on the film The Program , and landed the role of Hayes, who had become a Hollywood action star over the off-season that occured between the two films. Epps' career portraying athletes rol

Former Phils prospect Cozens stops looters in AZ

Last week, as he rang in his 26th birthday, Dylan Cozens wasn't celebrating.  Instead, he took to the streets in the midst of rioting to protect local businesses in his native Scottsdale, AZ. After 1:00 AM, Cozens, a former Phillies outfield prospect and current Rays minor leaguer, caught a glimpse of some rowdy happening on Facebook Live.  Posts showed violence and thievery and the former second round draft selection wasn't going to let it continue.  "When I saw what they were doing and the reason behind it, I decided to try and stop it because it wasn't right. It had nothing to do with Black Lives Matter.  It was a hate crime to go and try to destroy businesses and loot and hurt peopl
