The Phillies won Thursday night. More importantly, their subsequent number of wins and losses, combined with the date of the game, amount to the Twitter equivalent of Friday the 13th falling on Halloween.
After taking down the Mets at Citi Field, the Phillies earned a record of 6-9 with a couple hours to spare on April 20.
So, 6-9 on 4/20. If the significance of either of those numbers needs to be explained to you, this post probably isn't for you in the first place, and I must strongly caution against you Googling the former.
Anyway, people noticed:
