Beer, The Breakfast Of (National League) Champions

By now, I'm sure you've seen this video of a four-year old boy chugging a brewski during Sunday's Phillies game against the Padres at Citizens Bank Park. (Only the first nine seconds show the youth in the act of drinking the beer.)

Although no one has confirmed that the bottle actually contained the beverage of champions, how the phudge did this kid's parents allow him to get anywhere near an open beer bottle?

Then again, we are talking about Phillies Phans. It should come as no surprise that the same fan base that produced the projectile vomiter who victimized a cop's kid (no word on whether the cop's kid was drinking at the time) and the fan who needed to be tasered when he ran onto the field during a game (see photo below) would also have a future AA member make his drinking debut at a Phillies game.

Due to an assortment of injuries, the Phillies have had to call up a number of their minor leaguers this year. However, after seeing the young boy enjoy his liquid Happy Meal, perhaps the Phillies will have to specify whether AA refers to where their minor leaguers come from or where their minor age fans are going.

Stay crassy, Philadelphia. Stay crassy.
