A fellow named Bob Ford, a columnist in Philadelphia, was not impressed with the crowd at Miller Park last night, saying that the crowd "wasn't all that loud."
As we left the stadium last night, I chatted with a Phillies fan wearing a Chase Utley jersey.
He said to me, unprompted, "You guys are too loud here. Everywhere else I've watched a Phillies game on the road, I could make myself heard. Not here. Not tonight."
Evidently, Bob needs to turn up his hearing aids. Or adjust the volume on his TV set. Or wander into the actual stadium rather than holing up in the press box eating sausage.
