Excerpts from the weekly Ask Gonzo chat on Philly.com with columnist John Gonzalez: Big, breaking news coming from the Phils: With Chase Utley on the mend, the Fightin's have altered their (food) roster and brought in Tastykakes. This season at Citizen's Bank Park, you'll be able to buy Butterscotch Krimpets, chocolate cupcakes, sugar-free snacks and, my favorite, Kandy Kakes. It's a mind-blowing move. I think we can all agree that if Utley were healthy, this wouldn't have happened.
Excerpt from Monday's weekly Ask Gonzo chat on Philly.com with columnist John Gonzalez: Jumping over the hood of a Kia is weak - unless the car is moving, which it wasn't. Blake Griffin is better than that. He should have rolled Justin Bieber into a ball and dunked him. That would have been worthy of his ability.
John Gonzalez has written for the Inquirer, Boston magazine, Village Voice Media, Men's Journal and a host of other outlets he either can't remember or chooses to forget. He also ran for U.S. Congress once (and still won't shut up about it). After scribbling many words for print publications, he's now committed full-time to digital endeavors. Turns out the Internet isn't a fad after all. Tell your friends.
