Best Z-Mail!!!

I got this late last night and it made me smile. Had to share, because there's so much goodness in it:


I accidentally recorded the 9th inning of a Phillies comeback against the Mets in 2007 because my DVR was set up to record DNL and it was an afternoon game that went long. It ended up being an awesome inning, with Billy Wagner blowing it and getting the L. I ended up saving it forever, and now that my DVR is about to die I figured out how to get it off of there and share it with the world. You can see it here. (Editor's Note: It's also embedded at the bottom of this post)

The video is special for several reasons:

1) As previously mentioned, it features confirmed rat Billy Wagner blowing a save and getting a loss against the Phillies

2) The game is called by Harry. Even if it wasn't an awesome comeback it would be great just to hear him call it. It is also a three man booth with Sarge being Sarge and Wheels being Wheels.

3) Tadahito!

4) Maybe the best post-game interview ever. Chase gets the shaving cream treatment from Shane, but then continues the interview like nothing happened. A true professional.

5) Mets fans looking sad. This was back when they thought they were good, so it was a lot more satisfying than seeing sad Mets fans today.

6) Probably the best part, and the reason for this email: Just after the 10 minute mark, Greg Dobbs hugs Jayson Werth in the dugout and says " motherf***er". I have no clue what he says. I have watched this so many times and just have no idea. I have shown this to probably 20 people over the last 6 years and nobody can figure it out. Anchovies? Androids? Hopefully with your great connections you can get to the bottom of it. If you figure it out I'll buy you a beer or something. Thanks, and keep up the good work.

  1. I believe Dobbs said," Let's go, mf! "

  2. Replies
    1. I hate to say it. I think he yells, "Andro, m-erf-er!" The slang term for androstenedione, a "supplement" made famous by Mark MaGuire's locker.

  3. All i hear is anchovies - you shouldn't have given us clues..... Now I want pizza.

  4. Thanks for posting this! I'm really happy others are getting to see this now, especially after such a crappy season. It's been replayed multiple times at every party I've had since it was recorded, but I don't think I have the reach you do. Look forward to hearing someone yell "Anchovies, motherf**ker" at CBP next year.

    1. But don't do it because there's probably kids sitting near you

  5. Chase Utley high fived the camera. True Pro.

  6. Loved all these guys. Even more than the crew that went on to win the WS. Such heart and character within this team. Made my day!

  7. Please, before anyone designs a T-shirt or starts an anchovies cheer which could really embarass Chase, I think Dobbs is yelling "Andro".
