Ryan Howard bought $32 worth of popcorn on Sunday morning from Cub Scouts Pack 117 outside the Epiphany of our Lord Church in Plymouth Meeting, absolving himself in their eyes for going down looking the night before in the deciding game of the NLCS.
We're told that the congregation didn't bother the Phillies superstar but that at least a few parishioners had sinful thoughts about Howard's Eagles-cheerleader girlfriend, Krystle Campbell who accompanied Howard and his son, Darian, 9, to the services.
