We Are Under Attack!

bee body.jpgIt appears we are under a killer bee attack at Bright House Field.

OK, they might not be killer bees. But there is a massive swarm of something hovering behind home plate. They appeared out of nowhere in the fourth inning and forced most people to abandon their seats behind the Phillies dugout.

(The real gamers stayed where they were.)

But the thought crossed my mind that dying from a killer bee attack while sitting in the pressbox during a meaningless spring training game was not exactly the way I had pictured moving into the afterlife. I guess that’s why I closed my press box window.

Thankfully, a good wind gust forced the bees elsewhere. They should be swarming the Carpenter Complex at this moment.

Inquirer baseball writer Jim Salisbury, who is seen seated in the window to Casterioto’s right, is a gamer and maintains his focus on the field.
