HERE COME THE MEN IN RED: WILL SMITH A BIG HIT IN PHILLY
In Philadelphia, Jayson Stark calls Will Smith and D.J.
Jazzy Jeff wearing Phillies jerseys at the Grammy's on CBS
on Wednesday a "dramatic development," adding, "Literally
millions of people around the world witnessed this Phillies
fashion show." Phillies Promotions Manager John Brazer:
"We've given away a bunch of jerseys over the years ...
hoping this might happen. ... Now this -- and we had nothing
to do with it. It gives me hope, though. I'll be giving
away those jerseys to everyone now" (PHILA. INQUIRER, 2/27).
NEW KID IN TOWN: Phillies President Dave Montgomery is
profiled by Rich Hofmann in the PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS.
Hofmann, comparing Montgomery to former team President Bill
Giles: "[H]e parts with newsworthy information about the
club reluctantly. He doesn't do timetables, and he doesn't
do trial balloons. In that way alone, he is the anti-Giles"
(Rich Hofmann, PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 2/27).
