It's that time of year. Yes, it's time the Phillies tease us by coming oh so close to making the playoffs before they buckle like Pat Burrell's knees on a 3-2 curveball. It is also the time for us here at WSBGM's to make a roadie from Central Pennsylvania to Broad and Pattison to catch a Phillies game. And Saturday seems like as good a time as any.
1:20 start time for the game, which means we will be pulling into the parking lot (most likely Wachovia lot) around 10:30.If you are going to the game and are interested in meeting up with us, drop a line on the comments section. Or if you're not going to game and are just looking for someone to sit in a parking lot and drink beer with...We like baseball, punk music, long walks on the beach...
Back in the day when I kicked it at 20th & Olney (go Explorers!) a day game meant a backpack full of Milwaukee's Best Ice and a ride on the Orange Line (that is the north/south subway line in Philly). These days the transport and beer are both a little better (a little...), but I'm riding there with Carson, so the car will probably still smell like the subway.
Enjoy the game tonight. Brett Myers goes for the Phillies, he beats women. Les Walrond goes for the Cubbbies, his woman-beating status is unknown.
