BILFtastically hyperactive!

Maybe I'm just bitter because I can't have real ice cream (have I mentioned before that being allergic to cream totally sucks?). Or maybe I just want an excuse to talk about baseball since I'm getting ready for a totally BILFtastic weekend. No, I'm not seeing my Phillies this weekend...I'm seeing my second favorite team, the Minnesota Twins. They'll be playing the Yankees, and between the two teams, there's a whole lot of BILFs. Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau (I am totally retarded for them--you have no idea), plus Blackburn, Nathan, Crede, and Harris...oh, and those BILFs all belong to the Twins (who knew there was so much hotness hangin' out in Minnesota, of all places?). Out of the current Yankees, I only have one player I'd view as a BILF (if Mussina was still playing, he'd be at the top of my list, though), and that's A-Rod. Yes, I know. He's a tool. A steroid-using tool, at that. But I like his eyes. And for a guy, he's really very...pretty, haha.

So anyway, in honor of all this baseball-related hotness that I'm totally, hyperactively excited for, here's a baseball-related post. It's actually a baseball-related apostrophe catastrophe. You'd think that if the Phillies really want to own this Graham Slam ice cream, they'd use an apostrophe, right? The e-mail should say, of course, that this ice cream is the Phils' go-to frosty treat.



It kinda looks like the Phillies' marketing team really needs to bring someone aboard who knows how to write well and use good grammar. (And if any Phillies marketing folks read this, please take note that I am a hardcore Phillies fan who just happens to also be a Grammarphile. Pick me, pick me, pick me!)

Have a happy weekend, everyone!

Have a blast cheering on the Twins. They need all the love they can get. I'm worried that they'll all be too much in awe of the new stadium and forget to play good baseball. And as adorable as they all are, they're even more adorable when they play good baseball.

So cheer extra loud -- they'll be ok if they know that someone there loves them. :-)

P.S. Yeah, I agree on the A-Rod thing, even though he's a tool.

@ k-bro: I'm so excited! I can't wait! I'm already geeking out about it. :) I'm also geeking out over the fact that I wished Justin Morneau a happy birthday (he's a Facebook friend!) and that Joe Mauer accepted my Facebook friend request yesterday...LOL!

Hopefully they will pay no attention to the new stadium and will just hit the crap outta the ball. :) I agree--they are definitely even more adorable when they're playing great baseball! LET'S GO, TWINS!!! I will absolutely be cheering extra loudly! Here's hoping the Yanks fans don't beat me up. ;)

@ Anonymous: If I know you, then I probably miss you, too! :) And if I don't know you and therefore cannot miss you...then at least I miss my parents, their cats, the friends I have left in that area, the World Effin' Champions, and the KOP Mall...haha!

Oops! I was the one who was missing you, Sweetie. I must have been having a senior moment and forgot to enter my name. Senility is an ugly thing...
Still miss you. Enjoy the game! :)

LOL! Too funny. I miss you too, Mom! I will definitely enjoy the game. I cannot wait to see a certain Mr. Mauer! :D

Phrank said...

I'll be at the game on Saturday. Bet I can cheer louder for the Yankees! LOL

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

LOL! True, you probably CAN scream louder than I can. But if you hear some random girl screaming crazy stuff like "Do it for the BILFs, Morneau!", or "JOE MAUER, I LOVE YOU!!!!", don't say I didn't warn you! :)
