J-Roll to return to show to clarify comments


Just got this e-mail from Best Damn Sports Show Period:

LOS ANGELES -- After making comments yesterday on Fox Sports Net’s Best Damn Sports Show Period about Philadelphia fans being frontrunners that left the phone lines buzzing and filled the blogs up with hundreds of comments, Philadelphia SS Jimmy Rollins is coming back on the show today to discuss the reaction to his interview.

On Wednesday, Rollins had this to say about Philly fans to BDSSP hosts Chris Rose and John Salley:

“…it's one of those cities. I might catch some flak for saying this, but, you know, they're front-runners. When you're doing good, they're on your side. When you're doing bad, they're completely against you. For example, Ryan (Howard) is from St. Louis. St. Louis, it seems like they support their team. They're encouraging.""

Rollins will join the show via telephone before the Phillies take on the Dodgers.
