And the Winner is...

Alex, who submitted the following story about a trip to see the Phils. He is the lucky winner of a 2008 Philadelphia Phillies World Series Collector's Edition 8 DVD set from Tuesday's contest.

One of my most memorable moments from a game was when the Phillies played the Washington Nationals a few years back. About eight of my friends and I decided to go down because that night was one of the loved Dollar Dog promotions. We bought a bunch of dogs and took our seats high up behind rightfield right against the chain link fence. About two innings went by before we decided we could do something with all these leftover hot dog wrappers.

I need to explain something else before I divulge what we did with our trash. We have this friend Roshun who backs out of a lot of plans like weekends at the beach, going to see a movie, and this particular Phillies game. We decided to enact a little bit of a payback for his years of weaselly-ness.

We began to wrap the wrappers around the fence as if to spell out something to cheer on the team except this was to enact revenge on Roshun. It didn't take long before we had written out Roshun's cell phone number in hot dog wrappers for all the stadium to see.

We would later find out that he had received the maximum amount of vociemails his phone could hold, I think around 50 something. Roshun had to miss the game because of some meeting at work. He explained to us that as he had to get up and leave the meeting because he was getting so many phone calls he thought there was some sort of family emergency. When he left the room and listened to several of the voicemails he was confused as to why a bunch of drunk people that said they were at the Phillies game were calling him. It is a great memory and one of the best pranks we ever pulled.

The sexycriminals link to your new blog will cost you one 8 dvd phillies set.... Sorry, I don't make the rules here.

I wanted to email our 10 day roadtrip story... 4 phils games in 2 cities...vegas before and after... cab driver molestations, poolside hijinks, child beating etc etc and whatnot,

or, I could tell you about our philly pilgrammige... also includes one night in vegas (20 hours, last beer literally finished off in the cab to the airport), limo to wrigley for a pirates game..bay went yard... morning flight to philly... beers in the parking lot... re-creating the "man or machine" photo, sitting first row in LF with our "PAT THE BAT" masks, going out later that night, ending up at a Philly house party...drinking all the booze, me falling face first into a table because I was so wasted... still having the scars on my forehead and nose to prove it... sitting at the game, through 2 rain delays and loving it because we ended up 3 rows up on the 3rd base side, whining about how lame the game was because the jays were winning....and then the bait goes yard in the 9th off of bj ryan to make the entire trip worth it... then we went out again...tried to catch a cab to atlantic city because, WHY NOT!!! not getting that cab and then going back to the hotel to find..HOOKERS..

I won't even tell you about the hookers.... that wouldn't be discrete....

There were hookers. There was blood, there were police officers laughing hysterically...

but the public cannot know the full story...

I would never make it in jail....

The moral of the story is... I don't know how to do the link thing. Perih will take care of it.

But that is a pretty good rundown of our trips. Let your imagination fill in the rest.

Love
Prystline

sorry, didn't know that you guys already awarded the prize...

hot dog wrapper tricks are way better than travelling across the continent to see phillies games and old men getting bottled by hookers.

whatever... where i come from... the hookers win every time.

Sounds like they didn't need hookers.. They are evidently in love with Roshun. Whatever's clever.

I want to know if Roshun had to change his cell # then...

Holy crap the Eagles just destroyed the Giants, gotta love beating anything from NY.

Now hopefully the Steelers take care of business this afternoon.
