Oh man, I was just watching it on the news. The amount of people was unreal! Even watching them all try to head home in the subway is amazing. Looks like you got a great view, Frank! Beautiful day for it, too.
Today's parade surpassed my former baseball highlight: getting Willie Mays' autograph on his 1964 Topps card (lost during my idiotic, early '70's renunciation of tradition).But ... what was good guy Chase Utley thinking when he proclaimed his team World F-----g Champions in front of several hundred thousand kids?
Three blocks away from THIS? Amazing shot, Frank. Aces! You guyz still have leaves on your trees? If you've got more, I know one dame who'd be thrilled to see 'em :). (No, not the leaves, Frank, the bods, the boys, the bums, the world champs! Arroo!)p.s. Now? Now, do you believe me when I tell you I am NEVER wrong? LOL! (And, yeesh o' yikes, Will B. has an attytood prob, alright; he couldn't take a joke if it were handed to him on a ten-foot silver platter . . .)
Good question, Jeff. He probably regrets that. Of course, most kids in this city hear that sort of thing all the time, and may well say it. Nonetheless ...
Ah, wasn't it a blast, Frank? Mark and I were down amid the mayhem...Once a train *finally* stopped at our station to take us downtown. Thank heavens that afterwards we ran into old friends near Love Park. We'd just seen a multi-hour-long line in Suburban Station and were deciding to hoof it up Broad to Temple and hope for better luck. But our friends were there -- we had not seen them in at least five years, having moved away from that neighborhood -- and they gave us a ride home. Twas brillig.I love those Phillies. I'm delighted the mostly crabby and bitter denizens of this town got to be happy for awhile and that I was able to see it!
Hey, what's this about crabby and bitter. I've lightened up! Honest.
Can we see a pic of *that*, too, while you're uploading more parade pics, Frank? C'mon, I wanna see a big shit-eating grin! Haha!
