Phillies Fever: Catch It!

Gannett reports on the popularity of Phillies merchandise with the team’s second straight NL East title. (Sign of the poor economic times: No one at Modell’s is even interviewed!)

The Phillies will put their logo on anything, including a knock-off off those popular “Stop Snitchin’” t-shirts the kids are wearing. Only it’s “Stop Phillies Country.” (Both shirts, directly or indirectly, promise danger to those in noncompliance.)

The owner of the Sports Depot on the Black Horse Pike said he ordered 1,000 Phillies pennants and has only 70 left. And (gasp!) Phillies merch even outsold Eagles stuff (no thanks to the blimp cam) at his store. The two authors of this piece also notify us of a store called “Hello Sports Fans.”

    I have caught Phillies fever, but I think it’s the wrong kind. I have this strong urge to vote for George Phillies…
