Guy wearing Phillies and Orioles gear committed a heinous Tier 1 Violation
Just when I thought I’d seen it all, something new finds a way to bother me. The latest installment in this series is a fan – if you can even call him that – at the Phillies game committing a fandom violation of epic proportions.
This guy wore an Orioles hat and a Phillies jersey to the game… what?
I’m not one of those guys with a bunch of strict rules about what you can and can’t wear when supporting your favorite team. You won’t catch me caring about a grown man wearing a jersey or anything like that, I couldn’t give less of a thought to it.
This exists beyond that realm, however, because he’s wearing the gear of teams in direct opposition to one another. That’s like wearing a Union uniform and carrying a Confederate flag, it’s just bizarre (bad analogy, but you get my point).
Looking at this image leaves me feeling uneasy at best and deeply unsettled at worst. I’m not mad about it, but I’d give a wide berth to a guy like that if I met him in public.
He may just be a Bryce Harper fan from Baltimore, but he’s equally likely to be a lizard person or skinwalker trying to blend in. Either way, he’s one weird cat.
I hope this person has people in his life that love him and can get him the help he needs. In the interim, the Phillies have to act swiftly and ban him from Citizens Bank Park.
There are kids at the ballpark for crying out loud. The place is full of families trying to raise Phillies fans the right way, and they shouldn’t be subjected to antisocial behavior like this.
So, at this point, I have no choice but to serve this individual with a Tier 1 Violation.
