Last night was Retro Night at the Phillies/Padres game. This is the type of thing a team does to keep a sell-out streak alive when a) the Padres are in town, b) on a Friday night in summer, c) when the temperature at first pitch is 98 °F.

Pictured here is Phillies commentator Gary Matthews, surrounded by two gals who took the gimmick to heart (and, likely, the thrift shop), while a really creepy fellow contemplates his next move. Not pictured here are the HD video-board renditions of players morphed into images of Prince (Purple Rain version), Isaac (he of tending the Pacific Princess bar) and others.
