Phillies Paint the Town Red 2011

Our latest distraction gets his first picture with a Phillies icon. Everyone is in costume: Red Phanatic, teddy bear and the Flash's nemesis, Captain Cold.

The 2011 Major League Baseball season is almost upon us. In preparation, my beloved Phillies are holding their “Paint the Town Red” series of events again this year, leading up to the Opening Day game on Friday, April 1st at 1PM. Things kicked off with on Saturday with the Phillies 5K at Citizens Bank Park and MLD was on hand for the event. It was great to be a part of Phillies history by participating in the inaugural race even if we didn’t break any records.

While I won’t be listening to any games on my iPhone this year, I’m hoping to take in as much baseball as I can. The Phillies have an epic starting rotation with their “Phour Aces (pause…) and Joe Blanton” (a sincere thank you to every local sports broadcaster for that quote) and despite injuries to Brad Lidge and Chase Utley they’re set up for a strong season. The next phase of “Paint the Town Red” begins this evening as the first of three On Deck games (i.e. Spring Training games at Citizens Bank Park) starts at 7:05PM with Roy Oswalt on the mound.

As was the case on race day, it’s far too cold for baseball.
