Patrick Carmody jumped on stage in the final spot tonight and came away the winner of our "Love Hurts" Story Slam. Patrick told the story of his best friend's passion for a certain Phillies ballplayer and how his obsession played out.
Our "Love Hurts" Story Slam was an opportunity to hear about breaking hearts and hearts being broken. We heard about Valentines cards given out in fourth grade, awkward break-ups, the pain of being a Philadelphia sports fan, reconnecting with an old flame a decade later, and breaking up with someone in a sudden way. We also heard about how gift giving can lead into marital strife.
