Pity poor Meech at The Fightins who had to endure watching his Phillies take to the road in Miami to witness a stadium one-quarter full of humans and one-quarter full of drunken pooches.
Last night at the stadium formerly known as Joe Robbie, Marlins fans were urged to bring their pooch with them for their annual "Bark at the Park" night. The Comcast cameras were continuously scouring the crowd for some of these pups when they came across a gentleman who was in the midst of serving his boxer a cold, refreshing beer. "Uh-oh" indeed, Tom McCarthy.
This reminds me of that 1975 Cleveland Indians promotion when the team encouraged fans to bring their elderly relatives to Municipal Stadium, where they were all rounded up and had their organs harvested. Actually, this is nothing like that.
