Welcome to Unnecessary, a somewhat regular feature where I’ll post something that really has no purpose being posted, other than it somehow involves the Phillies.
So Phil Hellmuth, poker champion extraordinare, played and partied in Arizona the weekend before Thanksgiving. There, he met up with our boys Burrell and Jenkins (seemingly best friends). From his blog:
Also, another text came in at exactly 11:32 from Young MC saying that two Phillies players wanted to meet me. So I walked across the room and had a great time chilling with Jeff [sic] Jenkins and Pat Burrel [sic] for about an hour. Those guys are still on cloud nine! They were in such a great mood and in such a high spirit that it was awesome to see! We had a great time talking baseball and poker, and Burrel [sic] and I started needling each other back and forth. That was so much fun! Burrel [sic] just tells it like it is, and that is refreshing, and fun. [“Phil I love watching you because you’re such an asshole.”] Uh, OK Pat. I dragged Nick and his wife out to the club with us, and the next day he said, “A country singer at a hip hop club, of course no one recognized me.”
Pat Burrell: Tellin’ it like it is.
