The History of Lucky #13

The latest leaders list is out and for the 2-week period of 2/2-2/15, Phillies Phollowers has been ranked #13 among all MLBlogs!  That keeps me in the #1 spot among Phillies fan blogs and assigns to me my favorite number!  #13 – awesome.  Let us explore…

#13 belongs to my hero, Dan Marino, the greatest passer ever in the game of football.  Don’t argue – he just is.

And one of the nicest people I have ever met.  This is my hair with Dan Marino (the photographer was shot later)…he is cracking up because I made a total *** out of myself the first time we met.  Rambled on and on about how much I loved him…he pat me on head afterwards and said, “It’s ok…”  Yes, he took pity on me.  What a nice man! 

The next time we met, we actually spoke on a semi-normal, adult-like basis.  We chatted about his charity work, his restaurants, his very strange limo driver who would not stop talking to me and some CBS camera guy who kept following me around.  The camera guy later tried to hunt me down after Dan left and I actually ran into Central Park (yes, in NYC) to hide from him.  There are very few things in Central Park you can hide from, but as it turns out, CBS camera men are one of those things.  But I digress…

Marino is a Hall of Famer, a world-class guy and held 22 major NFL records, until Brett Favre decided to break 7 of them.  Would he PLEASE retire already?  Geez!

And did you know that Dan Marino actually designed the suit that Charlie Manuel wore at the World Series parade?  And when he gave it to Charlie, he predicted the Phillies would win the Championship!  That was in 2007, so he was 1 year off; but Manuel did get to wear the suit this year!  Anyway, I am proud to share the #13 with Marino!  Let’s see what else we know about #13…

·        The age at which you are considered a teenager.

·        A bakers’ dozen.

Fear of the #13 is called Triskaidekaphobia.

·        Wilt Chamberlain and Shaq have each worn #13.

·        Then again, so have Billy Wagner and Turk Wendell.

·        There are 13 players on a rugby team.

·        The number of original US colonies.

The seal of the US has 13 olive leaves, 13 arrows, and 13 stars. These form a triangle over the eagle with the number 13 on each point. On the back, the pyramid has 13 levels.

·        PG-13 = when kids can legally hear people cuss.

I therefore declare that #13 is a LUCKY number!  But if you’d like to bump my blog to a higher number next week, I promise not to complain :O)

Entertainment You Can Put Money On

Spring has sprung!  Pitchers and catchers reported today, Ryan Howard lost the weight of a Thanksgiving turkey, Cole Hamels will start on Opening day (shocking, I know) and JC Romero continues to be persecuted for NOTHING!  There certainly are few constants in life, but here are at least a few things in the world of sports and entertainment that we can all count on:

- Brett Favre will retire: over and over and over again.


favreRetires.jpg- Cole Hamels will always sound like an 11 year old girl when he speaks.

- Angelina Jolie will keep adopting and popping out babies until someone makes her stop.

- John Madden will never, ever say anything that truly makes sense.

- Chase Utley will always be cuter than the puppies & kitties he tries to save.

- Jimmy Rollins will never miss an opportunity to speak his mind.

- Alec Baldwin will always be creepy.

- Christian Bale is still hot, regardless of how many obscenities fly out of his mouth.  He can cuss at me all he wants. :O)

- Joe Buck is incapable of having a good hair day.


buck.jpg- Ryan Howard will strike out…just wait…it’s coming…*whiff!*

- He will also knock the ball out of the stadium….oh, the compromise!

- Eagles fans will always practice their spelling, even during baseball games…E-A-G-L-E-S, Eagles!  Oh please, make it stop!

- Paris Hilton will never have any real talent; she is totally plastic.

- New Jersey will NOT sink into the Atlantic Ocean, never to be seen again, no matter how hard you wish for it. (I grew up there; I am allowed to say it)


parrot,0.jpg- Monty Python’s dead parrot sketch is still the funniest thing ever shown on TV.

- Charlie Manual is a big, fluffy teddy bear.

And in the “other” category; we will never have enough money, rainbows will always be awesome, you can’t make everyone happy, your health is the most significant thing you own, dreams were made to be realized and finally, the most important things in all our lives are Peace, Love and Baseball :O)
