Tweet of the Day: Hunter Pence, firestarter

Aug 17, 2011, 12:16 PM EDT

After this tweet I'm guessing Hunter Pence no longer has a 100 percent approval rating in Philadelphia.

    When Athletes Cook…. a vicious documentary about the slaughter of innocent food.

      Now, now – Rusty Staub is one of the great culinary artists of the 20th Century.

      Well yeah, I know that was a long time ago, but man, his baby back ribs…I have no idea where he got such tender, tasty babies.

      • jimbo1949 - Aug 17, 2011 at 4:06 PM

        from Boog Powell?

  3. kellyb9 - Aug 17, 2011 at 12:25 PM

    Could be awkard if he’s still living with Cliff Lee and his wife.

    • Jonny 5 - Aug 17, 2011 at 12:33 PM

      I don’t think that ever happened. He’s in a condo I think. If he’s as goofy as he comes off he’s going to sell a lot of jerseys in Philly.

      And then he said,”Good game, let’s go eat!”

      That’s just perfect for this city, it’s already on t-shirts. That goofy bastard is pure genius!

    Is the bacon ruined? Bacon. If he ruined bacon…on man. IS THE BACON OK???

    • firedude7160 - Aug 17, 2011 at 4:53 PM

      The bacon was OK! Pence tweeted: “The bacon was not burned! It was delicious, thanks.” Phew! That was close

      • Utley's Hair - Aug 17, 2011 at 5:10 PM

        Well thank God for THAT! We can’t have good bacon going to waste, now can we?

    I’m pretty sure he’d have to intentionally torch an orphanage or something to lose his 100% approval rating.

    • Kevin S. - Aug 17, 2011 at 2:01 PM

      Wouldn’t Philly fans approve of that?

      • Utley's Hair - Aug 17, 2011 at 2:49 PM

        Philly Phans do not condone torching orphans. Tasing when they misbehave maybe, but most assuredly not torching. The orphanage itself? Meh…the flash mobs will do that, but only if the orphans are out being Tased at the time.

    • professor59 - Aug 17, 2011 at 3:28 PM

      He went 0 for 3 the other day. The honeymoon is OVER!

  6. kopy - Aug 17, 2011 at 12:39 PM

    The best part is he could have genuinely pissed people off if he was cooking something else, but baseball fans usually enjoy bacon. Try replacing “bacon” with “tofu” – not so funny now, is it?

    • joshftw - Aug 17, 2011 at 3:24 PM

      Actually, it would probably be even more hilarious if he was burning Tofu.

    • CJ - Aug 17, 2011 at 4:14 PM

      I don’t know…I might be even more of a fan if he burnt tofu, that’s some nasty stuff right there. Admitedly that would be more funny as well.

      Burning bacon is a terrible offense particularly if it was no longer deemed edible, but we’ll let him slide this time.

      • kopy - Aug 17, 2011 at 6:20 PM

        I see where you guys were coming from. I was looking at it a different way. While wasting bacon is a mortal sin, I would much rather be forced to evacuate my condo building because someone was cooking bacon and things went awry versus having to move because some idiot tried to cook tofu.

  7. Clinton Manitoba - Aug 17, 2011 at 12:41 PM

    The approval rating in Philly is always in fluctuation as the fan base goes through Mental Menstruation.

    • Clinton Manitoba - Aug 17, 2011 at 2:22 PM

      looks like it’s that time of the day…

  8. twd1165 - Aug 17, 2011 at 12:52 PM

    Although bacon is acceptable as a source of fried pork product, now that he’s in Philly he should be indulging in something more healthy…like SCRAPPLE!

    Since he’s a newbie, I guess we’ll let him slide.

    • phillysoulfan - Aug 17, 2011 at 2:11 PM

      I was thinking the same thing. He should at least be trying Scrapple…just no one tell him what it is.

    • Jonny 5 - Aug 17, 2011 at 2:36 PM

      Scrapple is what it sounds like. Scraps of liver and backfat sometimes head meat is involved. But it’s just plain nasty and Hunter Pence should never ever eat it. Nor should anyone else. Why eat Scrapple when you can eat sausages, pork roll, and bacon anyway? It doesn’t even make sense.

      • Utley's Hair - Aug 17, 2011 at 2:42 PM

        Scrapple is awesome. Philly is all about using every little bit of everything., and that is scrapple—everything left over after hot dogs. But pork roll kicks a$$, too. Jus’ sayin’.

      • Clinton Manitoba - Aug 17, 2011 at 2:47 PM

        I agree, I tried scrapple at Lenny’s in Clearwater (right down the road from Citizens Bank Park Jr.) it was tough to get down.

        But if anyone ever goes to Philly spring training, you have to stop at Lenny’s for breakfast. Great food.

      • Jonny 5 - Aug 17, 2011 at 2:47 PM

        For real Pork roll kicks a$$. Check out it’s wiki page, pretty interesting.

      • paulsdamnblog - Aug 17, 2011 at 3:19 PM

        I miss scrapple. Moved from PA to NC and if you want scrapple you get something called “liver mush”. The name itself is a nosale. Anyway, I agree with everyone about porkroll kicking a$$.

      • Utley's Hair - Aug 17, 2011 at 3:55 PM

        Mmmm…salt infused breakfast meats….D’OH!!!

      • Utley's Hair - Aug 17, 2011 at 6:22 PM

        Hey, paulsdamnblog, apparently Habbersett can ship.

  9. 18thstreet - Aug 17, 2011 at 4:42 PM

    I heard he’s the 7th best cook on the Phillies. Carlos Ruiz makes a terrific flan.

  10. macjacmccoy - Aug 17, 2011 at 10:24 PM

    The Hell he doesnt. Havent you heard? He Melts Faces.
