“I tend to remember other people’s plays before I remember mine.”
That is what Chase Utley had to say to reporters when they were asking him about his play in Game 5 during the World Series. He continued on about his play by saying this:
“That was one of those situations where I was lucky enough to glove it, the guy took a big turn and there you go.”
Did he say he was lucky? Where is his arrogance?
When asked about his injury going down the stretch last season, he said the following:
“The last thing I wanted to be was a distraction, especially at the end of the year when we were playing so well.
I always felt like I had an opportunity to help the team. Not every day I helped, but I felt like I had a small part in that at least.
It’s a learning experience, but we got through it.“
Now, before you cut out a piece of humble pie for him, let’s run down some facts.
Utley is the man (and I use the term loosely) who cursed out New York fans at the beginning of the All-Star game because they booed him.
He is also the person who said “We are the (bleep)ing champions” during the Phillies championship parade.
Do I really need to say anymore? Not really!
Not only is he not humble, he is the most classless and as(s)inine individual I have had the privilege to never meet. Maybe I should he’s had the privilege to never meet me.
To say I hate him is a strong (yet quite possibly accurate) thing to say. I detest and loathe him. I would rather root for the (gasp) Yankees if it came down to a World Series with those two teams.
Chase Utley has never been humble. He’s always been arrogant and just plain full of himself.
My message to Utley:
One play does not a champion make. Show some class, you pompous jerk.
