PhoulBallz Q&A: What did you stock up on?

With a global pandemic going on, society is on lockdown with many local governments issuing orders to stay at home and for employers to allow their staff to work from home.

This week I reached out to some familiar names to see how they prepared to be hunkered down at home for extended periods of time.  Included in the group that I surveyed are baseball players, a professional wrestling champion, a recording artist as well as the radio voice of a local team.

I asked, "What did you 'panic shop' for or what did you stock up on with all of this going on?"  Read ahead for the responses I got.

Pitching prospect Dominic Pipkin: We did a little shopping, but it wasn't like hoarders grocery edition or anything.  We got a normal amount of snacks and stuff to eat and we already had toilet paper, so we didn't buy that.

Pitching prospect Jonathan Hennigan, who hunts and fishes:  Man, no.  I got plenty of deer meat, fish and hog meat to eat!  Got plenty of toilet paper.  All is well.

Pitcher Tyler Viza, who spent last season with Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley: Luckily, my family and I had already been getting stuff from the stores before anything even hit the United States.  Luckily, for me, I've been working at Starbucks the last few off-seasons and they had a bunch of sanitizer wipes, so I was able to get those even after they flew off the shelves.

Pitching prospect Luke Leftwich: We haven't really freaked out.  Just getting the essentials; bread, eggs, coffee.

Minor league pitcher Trevor Bettencourt: By the time I got home, there wasn't much opportunity to stock up. I (got some) meat and cereal.

Impact Wrestling X-Division Champion Ace Austin:  Not really, but my roommates did.  They didn't go overboard, but got enough to hold the four of us over.

Trenton Thunder media relations director and play by play broadcaster Jon Mozes: I stocked up on frozen pizzas.  Super easy to make and can last for more than one meal.  And whiskey.  Always need more whiskey at times like this.

Lastly, hip hop artist P-Lane served up this brief text response:  Guns, ammo, food.  LOL

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 grown tal
