Phillies Superlatives!

Around this time of year there are lots of graduations… high school, college, grad school etc.  Considering the month, and the fact that we had a few ballgirl graduations, we thought it was appropriate to give out some Phillies Superlatives!  We each put ourselves in Charlie’s shoes and gave out nine awards. These only apply to the first few months of the 2010 season.  The awards are: best home run, best batting stance, best breakout performance, most improved, funniest moment, most likely to get off the DL fastest, best hair, best walk up song and most team spirit.   Do you agree with us?!

Best Home Run:

Best Batting Stance:

Best Breakout Performance:

Most Improved:

Funniest Moments:

Bonnie: Hearing about the pranks the Phillies play on each other at Spring Training.
Katie: When the Phantic prays when Kendrick is announced
Katelyn, Kristina, Emily and Lindsay: When Carlos Ruiz got a double pie to the face after his walk off homerun against the Cardinals and continued his interview like nothing happened.
Kami and Tori: Ryan Howard laughing into his glove when fans ran on to the field.
Patti and Becca: The Phantic as Lady Pha Pha
Perrin: David Herndon and his pink bag

Most Likely to get off the DL fastest:

Best Hair:

Best Walk Up Song:

Most Team Spirit:

most team spirit.JPGA great award to win, and we have a tie between Rollins and Victorino for the loyal and spirited players! Perrin chose Jimmy Rollins because “you almost never see Jimmy without a smile on his face, and he is a true team player.”  However, Kami and a few others agree Victorino is the most spirited espeically after his apology for not hustlining on a dropped third strike.

Well Phillies fans, do you think we are right? Who would you give the awards to??!
