I'm not exactly sure where the recent trend of also having cans of beer to compliment champagne bottles during celebrations came from, but I have to say that I approve. Especially when the celebrations with the cans involve Phils Pitcher, Brett Myers, having one (or several) in his possession.
Via the Fightins comes two very special clips of Myers during the Phillies' celebration after winning the N.L. East Championship. The first is of Myers giving a local female reporter a beer shower along with the champagne bottle wielding Pedro Feliz and the second is a somewhat slurred interview he gave on-air to Comcast Sportsnet's Michael Barkann and Mitch Williams with beer in hand....
Well then. The funny part about the reporter "shower" is that it's the second year in a row that a female journalist was targeted by the Phillies. This year it was Jamie Apody but last season's attack of Jade McCarthy, looked a lot more fun. Other than that, I'm pretty sure that was a long night for Myers and the prediction of not getting swept was classic. Good times.
