Chooch-a-Mooch and the Phillies
I love the Phillies. I love them oh so much. I have what we like to call High Hopes round these parts. They won the first of three must win games last night and they're bringing the series back to Philly. I like all of the guys on the team and have a great deal of affection for Charlie Manuel but there is one guy who shines brighter than any other star in my sky. And that man in Carlos "Chooch" Ruiz.
#51. Philly's own Senor Octubre. Or, Senor Choochtubre if you prefer. All aboard the Chooch Chooch Train.
He's a fantastic catcher, has some seriously clutch hits, and perhaps most importantly, is the cutest Chooch that ever Chooched. I am a proud member of Chooch's Chicas, which may or may not actually be a real club.
And so, Roy O. and Cole, I say unto you: this weekend, do not shake off Chooch. Just pitch the game he calls and I'll see you on Broad Street.
