AND, HE'S RIGHT ABOUT THE CARDINALS:
Brandon Phillips Shows up to Baseball Game of Twitter Follower (Larry Brown, May 14, 2011 , Yardbarker)
Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips is best known around these parts as the guy who called the St. Louis Cardinals b[+++]es and then fought with them in a benches clearing brawl. Now he’ll be known for pulling off one of the coolest gestures we’ve seen.
Jimmy Traina shared with us the story of Phillips showing up to one of his twitter follower’s baseball games after the follower asked him to attend. Connor Echols tweeted to Phillips Thursday afternoon that he “should really come watch the 14u Cincy flames in West Chester tonight.” Phillips responded by asking what time and where, and Echols gave him the address. Amazingly enough, Phillips actually showed up for the game.
Phillips praised Connor’s performance and then laughed about how much trash the parents were talking. He stuck around afterwards to take pictures with the team, and you could tell he made their day.
