Picture of the Day: Charlie Manuel meets Paula Abdul

Jun 7, 2012, 3:49 PM EDT

I’d normally make some sort of “Opposites Attract” joke here, but obviously this picture needs no further commentary:

    Two steps forward, two steps back.

      we come together cause im dressed like a cat….

    She’s going to be taking over 2nd base now probably.

      Was this pic taken just before the 9th inning today? It’s the only reasonable explanation for the management of Qualls today.

        The only good way to manage Qualls is to tell him that the game starts four hours after the time on the schedule.

    Charlie might want to give “Pauler” a glove — I bet she could play the infield better than some of the Keystone Kops they have out there right now. At this point, Charlie is probably thinking about turning over the managerial reins to Simon Cowell.

      from what i understand she can hit a HR… or…. maybe you can hit a HR with her… i forget.

      I imagine Simon Cowell’s managerial style would be very Larry Bowa-esque.

      She’s even smaller than Eckstein, too – imagine how scrappy she’d be!

    “What did you think of that hit-and-run I called last night?”

    “So that was you that rammed my car!”

    Did not realize Charlie was so tall, or Paula so sort, not sure which one

    even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes…. ugh, what a day to be at the ballpark… :(..

    She looked more surprised at her chance meeting with Lil’ Jose

    He’s her idol!

    Look at his pants

    I was at the game today and Paula came out on the field between innings to dance with the Phanatic. It was great that she didn’t take herself too seriously and was a good sport about the whole thing. You’d never see the current American Idol female judge do something like that.

    • Utley's Hair - Jun 7, 2012 at 10:18 PM

      American Idol is still on?

    Send this old man and Qualls to Hollywood and get them out of Philly. They both stink!!!!
