A funny thing happened to Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg before Sunday’s game

May 4, 2014, 7:10 PM EDT

Philadelphia was hosting two notable athletic events on Sunday. One was the Phillies’ series finale against the Nationals, and the other was the Broad Street Run. Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg inadvertently found himself involved in both.

From the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Matt Gelb:

Sandberg also got to enjoy his team win 1-0 over the Nationals, taking two out of three in the series against their division rival. If Sandberg threw up on Sunday, it wasn’t because of his awful bullpen for once; it was because of the running.

    I’m only going to run 10 miles if I have to pay money and get a participation trophy afterwards.

    So he already knows what it’s like to not be awarded a trophy?

    That’ll come in handy going forward as manager of the Phillies.

        I won an award handed or by a Phillies fan! I’m going to put that right next to my NAMBLA Man of the Year award!

        Well… Next to but just slightly below. You understand though. Right?

      Your act is so tired.

        If what you’re saying is that you’re Ruben Amaro Jr. and you’re offering me a 6 year contract well above market value, I accept.

        NAMBLA?? Really?? You think raping young boys is funny or acceptable behavior??
        You are a despicable subhuman. Rot in hell.

    We’re burying the lead here. Sandberg uses Uber to get to games?
