Apparently the Phillies and Eagles had a solid porn collection at the Vet

I didn’t get a blurry picture of Veterans Stadium being blown up  for this article because I couldn’t find a nicer picture. I did it because when I think of Veterans Stadium, I think of a disaster of a stadium. That and Ronde Barber returning an interception that ended any chance of the Eagles going to the 2003 Superbowl.

Some people in Philadelphia think of the Vet as a dump, that was our dump. To be honest, I just think of it as a dump that gave Philadelphia a bad national reputation.

This morning on 94 WIP former Eagle Hollis Thomas reminded me why I feel that way about the Vet.

“[The Phillies] did have an awesome… we used to share like the shower and rest room area at the Vet, and they had an awesome collection of porn. They did, it was just like a bunch of books in there,” Thomas said Thursday on the 94WIP Morning Show. “It was just in a chest. When I first got there I was like, ‘What is this?’ They was like, ‘This is reading material’. I was like, ‘Reading material?’”

I mean I’m sure that they all read the articles too, right?

Thomas did go on to say that both teams had their priorities straight, because there was a good selection of porn magazine available to the players.

“Everybody knows about the blue chest,” he said. “It was an array, a pretty good array of magazines. You actually had a variety too. It was almost like a newsstand, put it that way. Actually, yeah, it was the precursor to the internet. You just picked up one, and there was a little sign that said when you’re done with the book, put it back. I did get a couple of books where the pages were stuck together.

The pages were stuck together? I don’t even know how to respond to that in a professional manner. Keep in mind that I’m only 17, because if I read this article with my friends we would have jokes about this for weeks, and maybe longer.

I’m glad that not only Hollis brought this transcending story to light after all these years, but a former Eagles ball boy could even confirm its truth.
