THINGS WE LOST IN A FIRE

THE PHILLIES ARE ACCIDENT-PRONE

By / 07.30.07

Two people were injured at Citizens Bank Park — that's the baseball field in Philly — when a food service worker drove a golf cart into an elevator shaft.

[T]he driver had been intentionally riding the cart into the freight elevator door while waiting for it to open. When it did, his coworker said, the driver couldn’t brake in time, and the cart fell an estimated 30 feet onto the elevator below.

Uhhhh… that doesn't even begin to draw the picture for me.  I still have no idea what happened. Why didn't the coworker just say, "It was like that scene in Die Hard 4… except it was a golf cart and not an SUV.  And there was no explosion.  And no Asian chicks died."  (Spoiler alert! -Ed.)  Either that or, "He was being a jackass."  That's just as descriptive.  Funnier, too.

Of course, this is only slightly less bizarre than centerfielder Aaron Rowand's injury from a game of tag with neighborhood kids.  He's listed as day-to-day and is a late scratch for today's game of duck-duck-goose at Timmy's house.
