Jake Arrieta is the new guy in town. The mound at the ballpark in South Philadelphia will likely be a very comfortable place for him to go to work. But what about his family up in the stands?
Arrieta's wife Brittany took to Twitter to solicit advice from Phillies fans on what her and their son Cooper will need to know about Citizens Bank Park.
Already leary of the impeding snow in Philly this week, Brittany also asked about games, traditions and food that are important at Phillies games.
Ok @Phillies besides getting a lot of jackets for this 👇🏼❄️☃️🧤🧣our son, 👦🏻Cooper, would like to know everything we need to know about games/traditions/what to eat at the ballpark 🏟⚾️🍿🤷🏻♀️ #helpuslearn pic.twitter.com/6I2nEiU248— Brittany Arrieta (@MrsArrieta49) March 20, 2018

Some common themes included crab fries, Graham Slam Ice Cream, cheesesteaks, hot dogs, Bull's BBQ, the Phillie Phanatic, etc. But this wouldn't be Philly without some snarky answers.
It's ok to boo. It's funny. Won't hurt anyone's feelings.— Natrone Memes (@Chr1stPuncher) March 20, 2018
Also, make sure he knows how to spell E-A-G-L-E-S... trust us, it's a year round thing.— Pete Barresi®️ (@Goombata) March 20, 2018
Learn the words to High Hopes. Eat Crab fries. Beware of flying hot dogs. Learn the Eagles chant, it will probably be more frequent this year.— Donna Vox (@Donnavox) March 20, 2018
Also the Phillie Phanatic is the greatest mascot. Be on the lookout for flying hotdogs. He's a pro at using the hotdog launcher though.— Brooklyn (@Brookie425) March 20, 2018
We really dont like the Mets. And alot of their fans usually show up.— Johnny Whistles (@TattedShyGuy) March 20, 2018
Head over to Brittany Arrieta's Twitter acount to see all of the responses and offer some of your own. I recommend a grilled sausage and onions from near Ashburn Alley and a local brew. Enjoy.
