The Elusive Citizens Bank Park Dumpster Hippie

May 6, 2011, 9:14 AM EDT

Phillies fans AP

One of the better developments of the early season has been the return of The Fightins. It’s a great Phillies blog that had gone on hiatus for a while.  I missed them because they are one of the few Phillies voices out there that doesn’t obsess about how the world views Philly. Rather, they actually, you know, seem to have a lot of fun watching a great baseball team and don’t cry if someone disrespects the blog’s namesake. What a concept.

Oh, and then they do stuff like unleash The Elusive Citizens Bank Park Dumpster Hippie.  Which is pretty much what it sounds like. And be sure to read the second comment.

In other news, the Braves head to Philly for a big series this weekend. If Atlanta is going to at least try to make a race of it it’s pretty important that they do well.  If you’re looking for a nice preview of it, you can start at Crashburn Alley, who talks to Braves blogger Peter Hjort about the series.

My personal view: life is always better when the Bravos miss Roy Halladay.  Life is always worse when they face Cole Hamels. It’s not like there are a lot of good options in matching up, however.  That said, I like the way Atlanta is playing right now a hell of a lot better than they were the last time these two met.

    Phillies are lucky they don’t have to face Beachy. Also, all Phillies fans are dumpster hippies so I hardly find them to be elusive, more like intrusive. Suck it Philly. Suck it. Now bring it.

      Cliffy is not happy with the Braves right now Heyward. Not happy at all. Expect him to bring the wrath.

      PS I think that may be Utley’s Hair looking for cake. You know how those cake eaters can be…

      • Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - May 6, 2011 at 10:32 AM

        That was my second guess. UH probably lives a few dumpsters down from that guy by my guess.

        If Cliffy does well, my fantasy team does well. If not, the Braves will do well. WIN WIN….or LOSE LOSE.

        1.) That most certainly is not me—no sheen around the joint, duh. Though, admittedly, Sheen has been a bit overexposed recently.

        2.) I wouldn’t be looking for cake in there, ’cause everybody knows that cake is always consumed and enjoyed, and never thrown away. There is quite a lot of pie in those things, though.

        Spoken like a dumpster diving pro.

        ut!!You admit you rummage through the trash, so although that guy in the pic isn’t you, You’re still a dumpster hippie???? Hey, I’m heading to Camden tonight to catch a riversharks game. I bought some tickets to help children with autism, and a nice calm ballgame with beer and food cheaper than at CBP.

        Ah…Cambell’s Field (still don’t know why they didn’t go with the Soup Bowl, but whatever…). It’s like an oasis in…well, Camden. We haven’t made it there yet. When we make it over there, we’ll probably make a couple stops.

      miss beachy? please he’s good but he’s not THIS good

      • Utley's Hair - May 6, 2011 at 2:38 PM

        “Miss Beachy?” Wasn’t that the name of a comic strip or something from about 20 years ago?

    • schmedley69 - May 6, 2011 at 5:25 PM

      And all Braves players/fans look like Glenn Hubbard.

    Craig, The Fightins is a hilarious blog, but they have been known to get their backs up about the national announcers/media from time to time…

    Atlanta fans have no leg to to stand on. Worst fans in ALL OF SPORTS. Worst sports city in the country. Hands down frauds. That being said hell of a game from drunky tonight.
