Roy Oswalt, Welcome: You're Not in Texas Anymore!

I feel obligated to snap this off tonight.  The Tex Mex Phillies aka Astros are a much different team and Roy Oswalt deserves some advice upon his arrival.  Considering Houston is like our second home I would like to help him adjust once he gets to Philly (he pitches tomorrow night at the Nats for anyone who has been asleep).

Big Texas Howdy, Roy!  I hope this helps you as much as you will help us on our quest to the World Series!

  • There is no Original Momma Ninfa's or anything quite like it anywhere in the area (and I mean it).
  • There is no Luling City or Goodes BBQ and BBQ in Philly is hickory or mesquite, no walnut and apple wood unless you search.
  • We do not go to the beach, we go down the shore.  Our water is more grey than blue-green.
  • Our stadium has no cover so be prepared to play no matter what.  Fire works look better here than at Minute Maid Park.
  • Philly fans love to love you and will not hesitate to hate you.  Houston fans just love having you and a baseball team in town.
  • Get a cheese steak anywhere.  Texadelphia is not a real cheese steak place despite what Houstonians think.  
  • Eat some real Italian food in South Philly
  • Take a ride to the Poconos -  America is not flat, just Texas.
  • Learn to deal with the Mets fans who invade our stadium like mad, crazy bees.  They can be a distraction.
  • Finally, ignore the boo's.  We love having you here - we are just lacking that southern warmth.  we will make up for it in spirit.

The City of Brotherly Love guarantees you a parade you won't soon forget when we win the World Series.


Advice to J A Happ -  everything above in reverse!  See you in Houston!
