And we're just the folks to do it.

The Philadelphia fan effort in games 1 and 2 of this year's NLCS was much like the Phillies: sort of half-hearted, mildly amusing in spots, but generally devoid of passionate creativity. BED WETTER might have been the best Burrell taunt, for those who were devotees of his sexycrimes. But HIPPY TRASH? FIX YOUR TEETH? PIGEON TOED? Subpar. (Honorable mention for the corrected version of the sign that showed up in game 2). None of them came close to the winner from game 1, a banner effort that read: HEY PAT... ELVIS ROOTS FOR THE PHILLIES.

But honestly. FAT SLOB? I fear any bespectacled Giants will be hit with the dreaded FOUR EYES. Yawn.

Let's help out these high rollers with the dugout exposure and cardboard with some needed improvement. The past three games also gave us lots more material to work with. And for those of you who are more visual than textually inclined, you might look here for some inspiration (h/t The Fightins). Don't neglect the banner-sheet category.

I have a sense that, like the team, Phillies fans are padding about and procrastinating before they get around to the really good stuff.
