Brett Myers took the mound yesterday for the first time in Philadelphia since the incident last month in Boston. The fans reaction at the game was reportedly rather tame. This is likely due to the fact that no one wants to go watch the Phillies anymore. But some fans did come out to heckle and heckle they did. This photo from the Inquirer, while not being very eloquent, gets the message across rather nicely.
One typical moron caller to 610 WIP yesterday said he heard that Lieberthal had a plan in place if Myers got into any trouble: take a picture of Myers wife out of his pocket and place it in his catchers mitt. Damn.

-Most Fans Giving Myers a Second Chance [Inquirer]:
A kid in a T.O. jersey in the right-field seats was booed louder than
Myers. Third-base coach Bill Dancy drew more derision from the crowd
when he held Pat Burrell on a hit by David Bell in the second inning.
Mostly, Myers was cheered.
Well that's pretty disappointing. Except for the booing a kid in the T.O. jersey part.

About NBC internships
The online petition to ban Pete Morelli from officiating Eagles games is rapidly gaining signatures.
Count Malcolm Jenkins for one.
"I would definitely sign that petition if it came across my desk," Jenkins said with a laugh to NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark on Monday at the safety's Blitz, Bow Ties and Bourbon charity event.
The Eagles beat the Panthers, 28-23, last Thursday night despite a significant discrepancy in penalty yards. It was a game officiated by Morelli's crew — and you can see why that's notable by clicking right here.
"We felt like a lot of those were ticky-tack, or weren’t good calls," Jenkins said after the game. "For us, adversity is nothing new for us. We just kind of strap up and keep playing, and hunker down. We continue to play aggressively, that is the biggest thing. We don’t want that to take away our aggression, or our ability to make plays. So we just go to the next play."
What about the next signature?
Eagles fans just need to get that petition to Jenkins' desk.
