BILFtasticness!

I'm finally getting around to posting some pictures of my very BILFtastic experience earlier this week. Technically it's called the Phillies Phestival, and it's a benefit to raise money to help fight ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). But in my world, it's BILF Fest. And you will soon see proof that there were indeed plenty of BILFs in attendance!

First, here's a picture of me with the 1980 World Series trophy and the 2008 World Series trophy. I don't remember the 1980 World Series because my mom was pregnant with me at that time, but I remember the 2008 World Series quite well...


This is a picture of me meeting reliever (and temporary closer) Ryan Madson. I also met Jack Taschner, another reliever (shown here in the background).




Shane Victorino, otherwise known as the Flyin' Hawaiian, is a cool dude. Here are a few photos of me meeting Shane...







I've always liked the Phillies' closer Brad Lidge, but didn't realize how hot he is until I saw him in person. Last year he had a perfect season...so now I suppose I can say I have met Mr. Perfect! :) (He was not only really attractive, but was also one of the nicest ballplayers I've ever met!)








Although I didn't get a chance to meet him again this time around (you only have 2 hours to meet ballplayers, so you certainly can't meet everyone!), I couldn't help but stop by the booth where my favorite ballplayer,
Cole Hamels, otherwise known as BILFy McBILF, was signing...




Seriously, he is the most attractive ballplayer I have ever seen. Even when the wind is making his hair misbehave, he still looks like a freakin' model.



And since I'm such a good little Grammarphile, in between checking out BILFs, I was looking for screwy signs to post on this blog. And lo and behold, I found one...


His last name is Victorino, not Victorinzero. Sigh.

Even though it's been about 2 days since I met all these guys, I'm still totally on a BILF high...as you might expect! ;)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

I did! I'm still letting out the occasional squeal, even 2 days later... :)

Liebchen said...

Oh man, I'd looked at these on your Facebook, but Brad...mmmmm...

Oh, look. Just got some drool on the keyboard.

Cute pictures, Sweetie. I hope you have recovered from your long weekend and the drive home. Miss you.
Good thing I looked at this post before I checked out the Hump Day post or I would have missed seeing those cute pictures. I am going outside now to find a sharp stick with which to poke out my eyes! lol
Love you.

@ Liebchen: I understand completely. I think I drooled the entire way home in the car, from PA to NY, just THINKING about the hotness of those BILFs... :)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ LadyStyx: I'm so glad you have now seen the light, haha! Cole Hamels = the 8th wonder of the world... :)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Mama Grammarphile: I miss you guys already, too! I was homesick, like, the moment I turned out of the neighborhood. I'm glad you find this post much more fun than the "anal burger" post. ;)

Thanks again for a fun time over the long weekend! Love you guys!

Good post! I'm glad your enjoyed Bilf Fest 09. BTW your Mom left an awesome comment hahaha.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Dave: BILF Fest was awesome! :) *squeal* And yeah, my mom's comment was very funny...I liked it, too!

Did you thank Victorino and his OF pal Ibañez for being such studs on my fantasy team? Or maybe I forgot to ask...
Also, being a heterosexual male, I have no vested interest in the hotness of Cole Hamels, but it IS fun to goof with his name and call him "Hole Camels."

Becky said...

I think I just drooled on my keyboard.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Sitboaf: I did ask Victorino to do well so that I could rack up some more points for fantasy baseball (I have him on a team, too). I didn't meet Ibanez, so I couldn't ask him. (I feel like an IDIOT for not having picked Ibanez for one of my teams, though...grrrr!)

Hahaha..."Hole Camels"! In THAT case...I wish I were better acquainted with his humps!

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Becky: LOL! I was actually afraid I was gonna drool on Lidge. Luckily, I didn't...that would have been mighty embarrassing... :)

Dave said...

Damn...I just realized I completely left the Hump Day Grammar Post comment and the Bilf Day Fest comment in the opposite posts.....oops....

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Dave: It's OK. This is to be expected. A little birdie told me you might be part Polish... ;)

Oh my. I am not into sports at all, so I've ignored all your comments about Cole Hamels. But if you put pictures in, I promise to pay attention now and forever.

Yay, Jeanne! I'm glad you've seen the light, haha. He is SO GORGEOUS. And don't worry, I will most definitely post more pictures of him! :)
