RT: I’m a native Philadelphian so being a fan is in my very fiber. But my phandom hit a new high when I came out of the closet as Rally Towel in October ’09.
JW: What is your best and worst moments as a Phillies fan?
JW: What is your favorite thing about the Phillies?
JW: Are you machine washable? Tumble dry low?
JW: Is it especially hot in the summer?
RT: Yes, I don’t do well in the summer swelter. I really prefer fall ball – after all, the Phillies are Phabulous in the Phall!
JW: Ever had someone try to use you inappropriately? You know to wipe the sweat from their brow and such?
JW: I read somewhere your son wants to be a bed spread when he grows up. Are you OK with that?
RT: Actually, my son IS grown up (he’s 30) and a “swatch off the old towel,” and according to Mike on Good Day Philadelphia, my husband is a bath mat….So we’re clearly a tightly woven family.
JW: I’m sure you’ve had some interesting experiences as Rally Towel. Please share one or two.
RT: I turned them all down… I’m strictly a PHILanthropic towel. And besides, I use Head and Shoulders – controls the lint.
RT: The kids need a rest. They have fun playing hide and seek in the linen closet, or soaking in the tub, and hanging around the yard. Then they’re well rested when September rolls around. A quick fluff in the dryer and they’re ready for action!
JW: When they are being whipped into a frenzy by the Phillies Phaithful and there is lint spraying everywhere does it hurt?
RT: No pain, no gain my friend! It’s all in a day’s (or night’s) work for a Rally Towel!
JW: Speaking of hurting, many people like to claim the bleed their teams colors, but how do you prevent it from happening to you?
RT: I’m genetically engineered to be colorfast – no worries.
JW: What is your ultimate goal as Rally Towel?
RT: Sorry JW, but in that war, I’d be on HIS SIDE!!
JW: To say I'm disappointed is a gross understatement, but i won't let it be a wet blanket on our friendship. I’d like to thank you for your time. When can we expect to see you down at the ballpark?
