On The Brink Again.... Phillies Fans

Here we go again - a Philadelphia team is on the brink ... a 3 to 1 lead in the World Series with a chance to win it all tonight in front of the home crowd with their Ace on the mound. I've learned not to get my hopes up. Been there before only to see a Philly team collapse at the end (other than the 1980 series - That was the one where I had 4 tickets for the clinching game but gave the seats away because we were in the middle of moving). It's tough being a Philly sports fan - we've been in positions to win before - Phillies, Flyers, Eagles, Sixers - all making it to the World Series, the Stanley Cup Finals, the Super Bowl, & NBA Finals only to fall flat. Could this year be different??? I guess the only thing worse would be suffering along as a Cubs fan.





It's enough to make your hair stand on end - like my grandson Jack.



Go Phils!!! Y'all got 3 chances to win ONE MORE LOUSY GAME!!! We still have faith!!! However misplaced it may be....

The stars are in their favor. Also, since I like to not only tempt fate, but poke it with a sharp stick, I offer this: "There is no possible way that the Phils can lose. I dare the very gods in heaven to prove me wrong. The sissies."

The pic of Jack is great. I wake up like that, but my hair is shorter.

Now you've done it! You're gonna have to send a bunch of non-singing Catholic Pirates to march around the ballpark tonight to counteract your "challenge".

We are now so screwed dude....

Jack is such a cutie.
But what, pray tell, is that mascot supposed to be? Sorry, it may be obvious...I'm not really a sports fan.

Hi Becky - Yeah Jack's a cute kid. I kinda like 'im.

The big green fuzzy thing is the Philly Phanatic - he's been a fixture at Phillies games for years. He runs around on the field on a 4 wheeler doing wheelies.

It's freezin' up here!!!
