As the Philly hordes made clear over the weekend, it’s apparently still en vogue for Phillies fans to boo Jayson Werth at every opportunity. And there must be money in that; hence, this Toyota dealership and its ad poking fun at Jayson Werth, currently running on Philly.com’s Phillies page.
Speaking of which, some highlights from the media’s coverage of the invasion. The Philly Inquirer was impressed:
When Hunter Pence blasted a solo home run to left, the reaction was louder than some actual Phillies home games. Seconds before Mike Stutes induced a Danny Espinosa ground ball for the game’s final out, nearly 90 percent of a still-full stadium stood and clapped.
The visiting fans held signs that read “Welcome to Citizens Bank Park South,” taunted Jayson Werth, and departed with a bunch of Ian Desmond bobbleheads.
Boz was riled up:
During the Nats’ winning rally Sunday, even with the bases loaded and none out, only a few small groups stood and cheered openly. Out of perhaps 25,000 fans left in the park (a 71-minute delay for a thunderstorm thinned the crowd), it seemed maybe a hundred were Nats fans. Yet the instant the winning run was waved home, half the park stood and cheered. Who are they, these secret, ashamed or cerebral Nat fans?
And Nats Enquirer captured the indelible image of the invasion: Phillies fans and a massive group sign fail.
Meanwhile, if you want to see Post photographers chronicling the invasion, well, we’ve got that, too.
Though that wasn’t quite as cool as this.
