As the Braves welcome the Philadelphia Phillies to town for a midweek, three-game series, they will also lay out the red carpet for two of the game's most recognizable ballplayers.
Ryan Howard, the 2006 National League MVP, and Jimmy Rollins, the 2007 winner of the same award, gained immense popularity during their 2008 World Series victory and have combined for five all-star appearances since 2001.
Both Howard and Rollins have become just as synonymous with "The City of Brotherly Love" as a Geno cheese steak or a foul-mouthed, epically belligerent sports fan.
That being said, Atlanta fans will not be graced with the Philly shortstop's presence this week as Rollins remains on the 15-day disabled list.
Even more tragic for fans in attendance at the Ted is that they will be deprived of Rollins' fashion sense:
The cheesiness of Rollins' on-camera work certainly belies his ability to steal bases and knock base hits but who's to say that the come-from-behind-shoulder-kiss isn't ripe for a comeback? Not me.
Not to be outdone, Howard recently hopped in front of the camera to snap a couple photos:
Neither Howard nor Rollins could be reached for comment regarding the future of their modeling careers.
Now, I know what you're thinking and I'm not sure what I'll do without such sheer photographic genius either.
Guess we'll all just have to endure some pretty competitive, early-season baseball.
