Phillies' 'Rampage' on TV Monday

Sarah Baicker

Fans begin to gather on Broad Street moments after the Phillies won the World Series.

It’s hard to believe the World Champion Philadelphia Phillies are back at it, with spring training and Grapefruit League action already in full swing.

(Just, uh, ignore that 0-2 record, okay? It means nothing.)

With the start of baseball season on the horizon, it would make sense that the media would revisit those infamous celebrations on Broad Street that immediately followed the team’s championship win last year. After all, there’s no better way to get us back in baseball mode, right?

The footage, however, won’t be airing on Comcast SportsNet. Or ESPN. Or any of the local networks.

It’ll be shown as part of a show on the Discovery Channel.

…As part of a called Rampage!, which depicts violent, crazy acts of aggression by members of the public.

Other episodes of the show have depicted a holiday-season stampedes at a retail giant, a rapper fighting for his life after being hit by a car and a man in a cape being chased by police.

The Phillies' episode summary simply says: “Championship celebrations turn into a street war.”

Street war? Debatable. But there was car flipping. And fires. And the mass-scaling of a SEPTA bus

The episode premieres Monday, March 2 at 9 p.m., and is scheduled to be rebroadcast on Tuesday, March 3 at 1 a.m.

Our advice? Get your DVRs ready. And maybe your lawyers, too—if you’re worried you might have been caught on camera.
