Phils Fans Tried To Spike Giants Food With Ex-Lax

Yesterday I reported the news that Yankee fans had recently grossed out the wife of Cliff Lee, to which Phillies fans reacted with universal glee. But did Philly really think it’d escape the week scot-free?

Phillies fan on Pat Burrell sighting

(Suspect, perhaps?)

PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS gossip Dan Gross recently had this chestnut about similarly sick behavior from *gasp* Phillies fans:

A table of women at DelFrisco’s (15th & Chestnut) asked a server to put Ex-Lax in the food of Giants Pat Burrell, Brian Wilson and several of their teammates who sat in the main dining room Friday night, while the Toronto Maple Leafs were also in the house. Shane Victorino turned up later that night in a large party.

We get no follow from Gross about the incident, which, since we’re talking Philadelphia, didn’t even merit the lede in his daily gossip column.

Yesterday we noted the concern Lee’s wife had about the vile behavior of Yankee fans - and how Kristen Lee’s adverse reaction might impact where the future free agent will land next season.

If the Phils still have designs on landing the lefty, good thing Mrs. Lee will be dining in North Beach this week - instead of Chestnut.
