Pat Burrell played with the Philadelphia Phillies from 2000-2008. In his 12 years in the major leagues, Burrell socked nearly 300 home runs and broke at least twice as many hearts. Next weekend, Burrell will return to the team that drafted him and for whom he played the longest and will retire as a Phillie. In preparation for his return, some fans have put together a public service announcement on how to best prepare for Burrell's return to town -- if you should happen to be a dude.

I mean, it's funny until it happens to you. Those of us who don't live in Philadelphia can be grateful this weekend. (I mean, we can always be grateful we don't live in Philadelphia, but specifically this weekend.) There will be a barrel-chested dreamboat in town and he is taking no prisoners.
