About the Host Peter Mucha, husband and father of two, grew up in Cherry Hill and is a lifelong Philly sports fan. He's been writing and editing for The Inquirer for 18 years.
His motto (at least for today): "If I'm not brief, give me grief."
At Citizens Bank Park this season, kids have a new option at the Make Your Own Phanatic Store: They can one get that sticks out its tongue. OK, the Phillies site says it's "retractable," but same difference, right? In the future, maybe more "addytood" could be added with eyes that roll. But don't expect one that sarcastically spells E-A-G-L-E-S. For that, someone will have to design a plush Boo Bird.
Short. But with a Philly twist. Know of a smart remark you'd like to share? Maybe you said it, or heard it, or just made it up. One sentence is best. Email it. Use a nickname or go nameless.
