Phillies Post Season Fever!
It’s here for the fifth time in a row. Our Fightin’ Phills have won their
way into post season playoffs. Fans are ecstatic; sportswriters are lovin’ it.
All you hear in Philly and its surrounding counties is “all the way”. In
the beginning of the season, the sports headlines were all a buzz with the
hottest news of the “Four Aces.” No – not the musical group of the 50s.. get
with it- it’s the four ace pitchers: Halladay, Lee, Hamels and Oswald.
The bats were hot and the pitchin easy early in the season leading the Phills to their 100+ win before the playoffs. Names like Victorino, Utley, Inez, Rollins, Ruiz, Howard and the newly acquired Pence are in everyone’s conversations. Will they make it all the way?
Will we have another bigger and better confetti Broad Street parade?
Do yourself a favor… Grab the kids and go to the ballpark in South Philly, otherwise known as the “Bank” (Citizens Bank Park). It’s mesmerizing…
The antics of the Phanatic, the aroma of cheese steaks and hot dogs on the grill, and the familiar cry of the huckster crying, “Get your peanuts and Cracker Jacks” is just good ole fun!
The seventh inning stretch and participation in the lyrics of “Take me out to the ball game” is a big piece of the American landscape. You owe it to yourself and your future generations, and besides, it’s a great escape from
the trauma of the lousy economy.
