J-Roll Smurf Brings Phillies Luck

Since Friday night’s game did not go well, I decided that it was time for J-Roll Smurf to intervene and add a little Phillies Smurf magic to the equation.  So, before the game on Saturday against the Cardinals, J-Roll Smurf enjoyed visiting personally with many of the Phillies players.  The real J-Roll was excited to see his old buddy again and Ryan Howard laughed out loud as he thinks J-Roll Smurf is too awesome for words.  Also rubbing the luck from J-Roll Smurf yesterday was Brad Lidge, JA Happ, Chad Durbin, Pedro Feliz, Scott Eyre, Clay Condrey, John Mayberry, Kyle Kendrick and Tyler Walker.  And although a few Phillies, like Chan Ho Park and Jamie Moyer, seemed confused by the little blue mascot, J-Roll Smurf rubbed his luck upon them anyway :O)  You’ve gotta LOVE Photo Day:

And the Smurfy magic paid off with wins both Saturday and today for a series win over the Cards!  In fact, the original J-Roll Smurf, Jimmy Rollins, nailed a GRAND SLAM on Saturday and then a 2-run homer today!  There is no stopping him now!

In fact, during the last two games, the Phillies did a whole lot of this:

And the Cardinals did a whole lot of this:

Christmas really did come in July for the Phillies!

All these wins and entertainment too!  On Saturday, some crazy guy tried to interrupt the game with a laser pointer to distract the Cards hitters and a very drunk guy named, “Sully” distracted the entire outfield crowd later on:

Sully was thrown out, but did receive an standing ovation.

Here is the Photo Album from the entire 3-game series!

So the Phillies will hit the road for 3 games against the D-Backs and then 4 with the San Francisco Giants.  I will be in San Francisco for all 4 – hope to see you there!

J-Roll Smurf certainly did bring the Phillies luck! How else to explain the victories? :) Love your pics and have a great time in San Francisco. Very exciting that you’re coming west for that series.

Great Pics… really looks as though you had a lot of fun… my wife thinks the smurf had more fun being held by the players… warmer clothes for San Fran, it doesn’t look as though it will be much over 60 degrees out there…

Baron – I had a feeling you’d like that :O) LOL

Looks like you had quite the Smurfy weekend. Awesome job taking down the Cardinals. I think that the Cubs greatly appreciate it. You helped them get back on top in the Central. Sweet.

Our World Series rematch ain’t looking so great. The Yanks beat us down tonight. I’m hoping for a better showing tomorrow. Ugh.
