~ Go Phillies In The 2008 World Series! ~
and
~Go Phillies In The 2008 & 2009 World Series!~ (((Update 2009!!!)))
and
~Will I be adding "2010" World Series! to the title of this thread??? *lol*

but first... back to 2008...

~~~~
I've got a pizza in the oven,
and the Phillies are playing the Rays in the first game of the world series,
and winning 2-0 in the 3rd.


Pretty awesome considering that this World Series thing
hasn't happened in Philly in a pretty long time. (1980?) *lol*

Anybody watching the game too?

~Smiles~
Geno


p.s. (M i x e y will probably appreciate this, too!)...
This game also gives me a perfect excuse to clean off the cob-webs over here and post something here in "Balls N All" *LoL*

Go Phillies!



Here's the Up to the Minute Score,,, In Real Time!

Yes, Toad!

Go Phillies! They did it!
The first one has certainly been a great game. Both teams seem evenly matched talent wise, so it's fun to watch... and the pizza came out great, too! *LoL*
Here's a screen grab of the final stats of the first game.

and some video playback from mlb.mlb.com/media/video (here)

(I'd take a pic of the pizza too, except that I already ate it.)

Go Phillies!

I'm glad I posted the pic of the Ball Girls...
it was more fun looking at the pic than watching the second game...
Tampa Won.

Two ways to look at it...

The Rays played a Great Game
or
The Phillies didn't have a Great Game.

That's my very complex analysis of Game Two. *LoL*.

Here's hoping for the best on Saturday here in Philly if Game Three of The World Series doesn't get rained out.

Well what do Ya know...

After torrential downpours and street flooding here in
the Philly area and sub-blurbs...
that of which, I had the extreme pleasure of driving through, last night...

Game Three of the 2008 World Series actually got played last night.

The game started 2+ hours late (at 10:00 PM)
with the rain and 'tsunami style downpour' weather finally ending.
We even lost internet here, but not TV... and at the field, they broke out the big hair dryers, and somehow got the entire ball field dry and ready for the really badly sung national anthem, and "playball".

It was a good game... a close game... once again,
and Philly won it just before 2:00am!

- 2008 WS Game Three Stats from CBS -


Game Four starts tonight at 8:29 PM Eastern.

The stadium area must be a totally nuts zoo right now...
the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Atlanta Falcons 27-14
and just got done playing...
The World Series with the Phillies & Rays starts in a few hours,
AND a Who Concert nearby is all going on at the same time.

Imagine a leisurely Sunday drive through that area.
Or perhaps... not.

Good luck to everybody today in sports and driving to anywhere land.

~Geno~

Hi Toad!

Cool! Eagles won today too!
Pretty cool for a change for this neck of the woods with all of these sports wins.
( I wonder who is winning over at The Who Concert? *lol*, and Joan Baez is at the Kimmel Center tonight.)

OMG! Phillies 5-0 just now in the 4th!

Just posting this now, because I've finally recovered ...  Wacko
 
I was AT Saturday's game! The "Monsoon" game. (Had tickets through work.)
 
My boss, two co-workers and I had the pleasure of seeing them pull out a win. The game was delayed 90 minutes as wind-blown sheets of rain came down ... but no matter, we stood under concourse roof, sucking down beers and munching doggies, waiting for the rain to stop. It finally did and I enjoyed my first World Series game ever ... amidst 49,500 other delerious Phillies Phans who enjoyed themselves with equal full-throated enthusiasm.
 
Seven or eight beers, three doggies, one victory, and several hours later I managed to get home and crawl into bed before the clock struck 4am.
 
Yesterday I was toast. Hadn't slept well and had mostly lost my voice. I hunkered down by the wood stove and waited for last night's game, which was most gratifying. Clap
 
The Phils are gonna wrap it up tonight ... feel it in my bones! I'll probably be bagging work to head down to Wednesday's parade, behaving badly and drinking too much amidst four times that many crazy Phillies Phans.
 
Go 'Fightin's !!!!!

My Son called about 1:30pm & just got a ticket for tonight's game. He left work & is on His way to Phila. to meet friends. I'm so excited for Him; He was twelve & there when They won in 1980!

IT is COLD & RAINING like hell here!

And now a rain delay... out on the 'D'Street deck right here, it is in the 41s totally wet and miserable even... under an umbrella... I can't imagine playing baseball in this!

(2-2)
So now what happens?

Rain Delay! (((***Nor'Easter)))

They said it's a "suspended game" in a rain delay & has to be finished (because it's tied). If not tonight, tomorrow or Weds. But, they said Cole Hamels will not come back in to pitch. I'm guessing it's wait & see?
