Washington right fielder Jayson Werth underwent surgery on his broken left wrist yesterday at the Mayo Clinic after being injured attempting to make a diving catch during Sunday night’s 9-3 loss against the Philadelphia Phillies at Nationals Park in southeast D.C.
Werth, who prior to signing with the Nationals (18-10) in 2011, was an All-Star in 2009 with the Phillies (14-16) and helped the organization win its first World Series championship in 28-years in 2008, is expected to be sidelined for approximately four-months.
In an email to the Post earlier today, the native of Illinois bashed the barbarous Philadelphians who traveled south to “the District” and cheered when he suffered a severe wound.
“After walking off the field feeling nauseous knowing my wrist was broke and hearing Philly fans yelling ‘You deserve it,’ and, ‘That’s what you get,’ I am motivated to get back quickly and see to it personally those people never walk down Broad Street in celebration again,” wrote Werth, 32.
Sadly, the disgusting treatment that Werth endured from these applauding cheesesteak-eating cretins is standard behavior for residents of “The City of Brotherly Love.”
To name only a few reprehensible lowlights perpetrated by Philly fans, these primitive brutes gunned snowballs at Santa Clause, one shot a flare gun across a live playing field, another intentionally vomited on an 11-year-old girl and many threw D-Cell batteries at former St. Louis Cardinals outfielder J.D. Drew after he understandably rebuffed the Phils offer to play for them.
In 1997, actions of Philadelphia Eagles fans during a 34-0 blowout loss to the Dallas Cowboys were so savage and inhumane that the city assigned a Municipal Court Judge, Seamus McCaffrey, to Veterans Stadium to preside over the legions of degenerates ejected from the stands.
Supporters of Philadelphia sports teams are primarily pathetic excuses for life who need to be exiled from the world of athletics for the greater benefit of society.
There are three, albeit extremely unlikely, viable solutions for dealing with immoral miscreants from the “Keystone State.”
One potential resolution would be to administer extensive background checks on every individual attempting to enter a sporting event in the city of Philadelphia.
Granted, because most Philly natives have extensive criminal records, no contest would reach capacity.
Nevertheless, attending games in “The Quaker City” would be a vastly more enjoyable experience for the good souls that have consistently been forced to witness such debauchery in the stands for decades.
Another idea would be to mandate that all ticket holders pass a breathalyzer test before being permitted to enter any venue.
Again, considering the bulk of Philadelphians live to excessively booze, no contest would ever sell-out.
However, watching ballgames in “The Quaker City” would be a far more pleasurable and fan-friendly affair.
Lastly, the four major sports commissioners could convene and immediately disband Philadelphia’s professional sports teams.
Frankly, the last option is the most appealing.
“Filth-adelphia” is also known as “The Birthplace of America.”
For the betterment of civilization, all athletic franchises based in Philadelphia should be banished from the American sports landscape without exception.
In the meantime, while options are considered, at least Jayson Werth has pledged to “see to it personally those people never walk down Broad Street in celebration again.”by
