Wanna feel old?  It’s 1990′s RETRO night. It seems like yesterday we sported neon colors, plaid shirts, swishy pants, and mullets.  We enjoyed comedy sitcoms like Full House while teenaged girls screamed over the Backstreet Boys.  Or was that just me?

Anyway, the Phillies are going all out for 90′s retro night.  Not only will they be wearing their early-90s jerseys, they also have a record well-below .500!  Their sellout streak ended, so empty seats are a possibility.  Scott Rolen is even in the house!

The 90′s weren’t complete terrible for the Phillies.  Minus the whole Joe Carter thing, the 1993 team was a whacky interesting bunch who captured the hearts of Philadelphia.

So get together a fan club, and celebrate the 1990s in Phillies style!  And now for the obligatory pun: Party like it’s 1999!

LINEUP: Rollins SS, Pierre LF, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Mayberry CF, Brown RF, Polanco 3B, Schneider C, Worley P

Your Gameday Beer: Budweiser.  Why?  We’re celebrating the 1990s tonight, and when I think of “beer” and “1900s,” the Budweiser frogs come to mind.  And who could forget those “whaaazzzuuuuupp” commercials that started in 1999?
