Down to Bo Derek
The fantasizing has been working recently, so staying in that mode I present Bo Derek of "10" fame. And 10 is the number of games left in the season for our Phils. Last night was a perfect night as Brett Myers pitched a gem and the Phils won. Oh, the ecstasy doesn't stop there my friends...our buddies the Pirates beat the Dodgers and for good measure the Diamondbacks took one from the Padres. That leaves the Dodgers and Phils tied up for the NL Wild Card, with the Pads not far ahead. Hey Buccos- keep swashbuckling your way through the NL West please!
Obsession- this was born into us. From the time of inception Corey & Carson were Phillies fans. We had no choice in this matter, and I'm ok with the way it's turned out. During our toddlers years (early 80's) the Phils were in the forefront of the National League. As we grew up we rooted for our Phils without much success until that magical season of '93 (the year we turned 13). It's now 13 years later and I have a funny feeling some playoff merriment may be coming our way once again. This season had a downtrodden start, as I played hooky from work and went to Corey's house to eat and watch baseball all day long, but the Phils lost. Saturday we're going to the game against the Marlins with playoff implications in the atmosphere, doesn't get much better than that! This isn't just fun for us, it's what we love. Baseball is great, but the Phillies are the best. That's why we do this blog. It's an obsession! I'm sure there are others reading this right now and nodding their heads...Viva La Phillies!
In honor of our free swinging pinch-hitting extraordinaire Randal Simon who was rescued from the Mexican League's Tijuana Dirty 'stutes: "I used to know a girl...She had two pierced nipples and a black tattoo. We'd drink that Mexican beer. We'd live on Mexican food. Yes, I wish I could go back. Yes, back in time!" (Everclear-Heroin Girl)
