E-mail FAIL!


Unless you're new here, I'm sure you've figured out that the Phillies are my favorite baseball team.

However, most people don't know that the Twins are actually my second favorite team.

Naturally, I was thrilled to get an e-mail from Phillies.com in my inbox. And, naturally, I was thrilled to see that they were running a contest that would award the grand prize winner...Twins season tickets. 'Cause I really do love me some Twins, especially when their last names are Mauer and Morneau.

But then I was perplexed. Because really, what the hell sense does it make for Phillies.com to run a Phillies contest where the prize is Twins tickets?

Answer: No freakin' sense at all. (Most Phillies fans don't care about the Twins. The Phillies and Twins hardly ever play each other...plus, Philly is nowhere near Minnesota.)

So my theory is this--the webmaster or graphic designer screwed up. Perhaps he forgot to replace the "Twins" text with "Phillies" text to match the Phillies logo at the top of the mailer and the Phillies tickets in te left-hand corner. And if that's the case? Then this e-mail is a FAIL-mail.

Or maybe Phillies.com is suggesting all of us Phillies fans go watch the Twins instead since they're winning more games lately than the Phillies are... ;)
