can't believe i had never found this photo before

this photo is from one of pat’s buddies blogs.  a pga golfer by the name of pat perez.  he has some interesting entries in his blog in reference to the bat:

“Hey Everyone. Double P here checking in from Scottsdale this week. I just got back home Monday after a weekend out in Philadelphia. I headed back east to hang with my bud Pat Burrell (LF, Phillies.) He trains and lives in Scottsdale during the off season so he, Mark Mulder (Pitcher, St. Louis Cardinals) and I definitely have a good time and tear it up when our seasons end.”

“I headed out last Thursday night and Burrell was flying in from the Phillies’ series at Milwaukee. We met up, grabbed dinner and geared up for a long weekend at the ballpark.”

“That was pretty much my weekend – three ball games, a couple rounds of BP and getting to hit the town with King Burrell. He really is ‘the man’ in Philly.”

Going to make most of the time off next week. My bud Pat Burrell and the Phillies will be in San Diego taking on my Padres for a three game home stand. I haven’t seen the Padres in person since last season, so I’m really looking forward to a few games back home. Planning on staying downtown and hanging with Burrell a bit after the games. A lot of new stuff has opened up in the Gaslamp Quarter downtown, so I’ll get a chance to check all that out.

this is pretty much how i expect our next trips to watch phillies games to work out.  this guy certainly makes it sound like “king burrell” pretty much puts everything on hold, including his job as a baseball player (and that is why we love him), in order to go out boozing and partying with his friends when they are around.  i would imagine that a night hanging out with “the man” in philly doesn’t involve too many zima lights!

what are they putting in the water at this school???

i can understand the women’s tennis player (gina meyer) listing burrell as her favorite athlete.  i mean, sure it is a catholic school and all but she obviously got done up by king burrell

but the men’s cross country runner (john mcfadden) who lists the bat not as his favorite athlete but as his ROLE MODEL.  i mean he is obviously our role model around here, but does this catholic school know who ‘pat burrell” is and what he is all about???  i think if they did then poor lj(ps that nickname makes no sense) could be facing expulsion.  don’t worry though buddy, if you get booted out of college there is always room for you as a sexy criminal.

we should replace eaton with dalygreat article today in yahoo about john daly missing his tee time at this weeks pro-am and being disqualified from the entire tournament as well as his swing coach refusing to work with him any more.

His disqualification comes one day after Butch Harmon, one of golf’s most renowned swing coaches, said he was done working with Daly because the two-time major champion appeared more interested in drinking than working on his game.

“My whole goal for him was he’s got to show me golf is the most important thing in his life,” Harmon said. “And the most important thing in his life is getting drunk.”

Daly, playing on a sponsor’s exemption because he no longer has his full PGA Tour card, spent a 2 1/2 -hour rain delay during the first round in a Hooters corporate tent behind the 17th green at Innisbrook. He was 3 over, and when play resumed, he had Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden caddie for him the rest of the day. Daly ended up with a 77.

Daly spent Saturday at the Hooters “Owl’s Nest” at the tournament, drinking beer, mingling with fans and signing autographs, including one on the back of a woman’s pants.  

do we have confirmation that pat burrell was actually in phils training camp when this was going on?  what sounds more like the bat: taking bp and playing in some meaningless grapefruit league games OR hanging out in the hooters corporate tent and signing parts of women’s bodies??? it should be noted that phillies camp and the golf course that this tournament were at are separated by less than 10 miles: google maps link
