Kris Benson, Frida, America and so much more!
Take that Mets and Johan San-who-tana. We just got Kris Benson. Yeah, the dude who pitched for the Mets and someone else and has a good-lookin’ wife. Sure, he might not be ready for Opening Day, but I am, so that’s good enough for this guy.
Down Market St though, you will find absolutely nothing about Benson or tragically enough, Team G.F.Y., Philly’s hottest co-ed softball team. There will also be nothing about Aaron Rowand, Tom Gordon, or Alfonso Alfonseca. For the next couple months, the Baseball Hall of Fame will be showcasing “Baseball in America,” at the National Constitution Center. Oddly enough, the exhibit is about both baseball and America. Check out the Constitution Center’s website for more information.
And then up the street, at the big ol’ Art Museum, the Frida exhibit starts up next week. You know, Frida. The uni-browed woman on all those tote bags. Salma Hayek played her a couple years ago. Well apparently, Frida is more than just tote bags and Oscar nominations. The Frida exhibit opens on the 20th I believe.
What’s crazy, is that only a couple days after the Frida exhibit opens, the Phillies play their first Spring Training game…and that is what they call a very nice seque. And then, crazier still, a month after that, Team G.F.Y. begins their first season with a heated contest versus…someone. But just who is Team G.F.Y.? That’s a good question and because I’m probably the only one who asked that, I’ll save the answer for later.
So for now, think about the “Baseball in America” exhibit, Spring Training, American Idol, Otis Redding, and lovely Frida.
There will plenty of time for Kris Benson, his wife, Team G.F.Y., and Sam Cook later.
