Cancelled: Charlie Manuel Party

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Friday’s party with Charlie Manuel has been cancelled. With an influx of new found time on his hands and life-altering decisions still to be made, we certainly have to forgive Charlie for the misunderstanding.

Charlie Manuel:”I never quit nothing and I didn’t resign”

The Philadelphia Phillies severed ties with their skipper Charlie Manuel on Friday. In doing so, they broke hearts all over the city. In some eyes, Manuel had it coming after the Phillies came out of the break a disastrous 5-20. In others, he deserved a chance to at least finish this year strong and be evaluated for a contract extension at the end of the season. Those that argue...

Charlie Manuel pops out his dentures

During Monday’s Phillies-Braves game cameras panned to the Philadelphia dugout, and in a moment of perfect timing, caught sight of 69-year-old Phils manager Charlie Manuel messing around with his dentures… I thought denture wearers were supposed to use adhesive products like Super Poligrip® or Fixodent to keep their false teeth in place? Maybe dentures are like protective...

Watching Charlie Manuel popping out his dentures is nightmare fuel (GIF)

This just in: Philadelphia Phillies skipper Charlie Manuel has dentures. Of course, the fact that a 69-year-old man would require the aforementioned dental apparatus hardly is surprising.
