The Perfect Gift for Morons

Immediately after the Phillies won the World Series up comes the commercials for crap from MLB and Sports Illustrated that Phillies fans MUST own. Sure, you might be a fan if you buy a championship t-shirt or hat, but that’s not the way to show you’re a TRUE phan; that would be by bidding on this auction on eBay for lucky rain drops. These rain drops fell only MILES away from the stadium and were collected in a metal bowl for sale, they are the “tears of the Gods & Fans Rain down upon a city so hungry for victory that the Tension is palpable.”

Currently available for the low low price of $8.99, it’s a BARGAIN and you’d be a fool not to own this piece of history. As the seller notes:

You are bidding on rain from the same storm system that brought the game to a screeching halt. It was collected no more than 5 miles away from Citizens Bank Park. It will be contained in a small vial and then sent to you via priority mail. I do not know what size vial or exactly how much you will get but it will be no less than 2 ml. I took a picture of the rain that I had collected in a pan that was sitting on my front steps. That is the only collection unit that I used so a very limited number of vials will be available & once they are gone, they are gone. Some will laugh but others will covet this tangible piece of history in the making…

With a description like that I don’t know how you could possibly pass it up. So if you’re one of the coveters you better bid soon, you don’t want to miss out this limited opportunity to own history. The seller hasn’t figured out a way to authenticate this rain water as THE Phillies World Series winning rain water, but don’t worry, it’s all real. If you don’t bid now you’ll regret it for the rest of your life.

    The only rain I will ever buy is purple.

Sign Our Petition!

The Slanch Report has started an online petition asking the MLB Network to air the Dock Ellis no-hitter he threw on June 12, 1970 against the San Diego Padres. The moment was a seminal piece of baseball history and is certainly worthy of being rerun.

Please join us in this cause and sign the petition below so we can all share in this special and fantastic moment of baseball history. THANKS!
