Pat Burrell, naked, soaking wet, holding beer

No, there is no photo here, thank goodness.

I’m not going to provide much more in the way of details. I’ll simply add that in the presence of the naked, soaking wet, beer-holding Pat Burrell was Aubrey Huff’s mom. If this interests you, just read this.

Bonus: it contains the phrase “Back in spring training, he couldn’t stop staring at teammate Nate Schierholtz’s washboard abs.”

Context is overrated. Just go with it.

    While the Phillies fans (and media) had their ups and downs with Pat, he always seemed to be a pretty fun guy, in a fratastic sort of way. He certainly enjoyed the nightlife while in Philly, especially early in his career. And this has to be one of the all-time great photos from Phillies history. I believe this was after his first big year in the big leagues.

    Pat Burrell seems like a fun teammate to have around.

    I can see how this nugget might be overlooked with the overpowering image of Mrs Huff staring at a naked, dripping Burrell, but this Huff quote interested me:
    “Time for the laser show, boys!”
    Did he get “laser show” from Pedroia or has this been kicking around baseball for longer than any of us knew?

    Pat has a special place in Phightins history. Despite the booing–based on his effort perceived untapped potential and not his performance, per se–he took it in stride and helped them to the 2008 title. Good for him for turning it around and good luck to him.

    But Pat’s response to the story? He went to Huff’s room during his shower looking for shampoo? With a six pack in his hand? You NEVER drink beer in the shower, Pat!!! It waters down the beer!!!

    Suprised that Huff mom did not say… “ok, you go home …. I’M STAYING HERE”!

    I find it interesting that, upon seeing Pat the Bat naked, Huff’s mom breaks out laughing and says that it was funny.

    Fail. Beer showers are ritualistically fantastic.
