Philly’s Taser-Boy Headed to Penn State

Monday afternoon at Citizens Bank Ballpark, something more unusual than the Phillies losing to the Cardinals took place. 17 year-old Steve Consalvi decided it would be a good idea to run out onto the field, just for the heck of it.

During yesterday’s Phillies game, another fan also ran out onto the field, but was not Tasered.

How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
