One postgame note on Sunday's Phils-Cards game: On Philadelphia's WMMR radio station there is a uh, let's call him a personality, named Vinny the Crumb. He does short sports blurbs on the AOR/MOR radio station. His sense of humor consists of calling the Phillies "the Sillies" and Eagle coach Andy Reid "Fat Ass" using a South Philly accent. He borders on the offensive when he calls Vicente Padilla "Vicente Clemente Tortilla Padilla" (yeah, some latin names end in vowels-get over it) and crosses way over to very offensive when he calls Padilla "the big-lipped Mexican."
So when this very same Vinny the Crumb chastised the Vets Stadium faithful on Monday for booing Scot Rolen I was surprised. When he asked why the fans boo a player who didn't want to play for a team that didn't want to win instead of booing management I was shocked. Someone as boorish and crude,-I know the joke is that he is purposely so, but it seems to come a lttile too naturally-when he has more class than the fans of Philadelphia that sould tell you something.
