So We Should Be GM’s launched “Campaign Cheer” a few days back. Remember? Jimmy Rollins called us “front-runners,” then said we don’t support our team fully? Then there was a backlash? Then GM Carson and Corey came up with the ingenious idea to cheer everything for the Phillies at tonight’s game?
Well the ingenious idea spread like wildfire. First we Phloggers picked it up (Hugging Harold Reynolds, Crashburn Alley, The 700 Level, The Good Phight, The Fightins’ and the Nation all featured the idea). Then the mainstream blogs started to catch it (Deadspin, Epic Carnival). Then the MSM grabbed it (Philly.com). And today Carson was on 950 AM ESPN Radio, talking about “Campaign Cheer.”
Suddenly, the campaign that started as half-sarcastic slam has morphed into a real movement.
The question is — will you cheer?
Going or not to tonight’s game against the Nationals, will you cheer everything — the strikeouts, the groundouts, the announcements, the errors, the bad pitching? Or are you still bitter from Rollins’ comments/the team’s poor play?
So how would you react? To cheer, or not to cheer?
