…all the cheap shots at the American League teams are out of my system, until something really horrendous happens, it’s time to focus on the task at hand, supporting the Philadelphia Phillies through thick and thin, taking all the abuse other fans can give, and giving it back in the same good humored rivalry it is all meant.

Accepting that when my team does something, which to the average human, is totally off the wall and far out there, they are doing it for the best interests of the club and not to spite the fans.

Everyone gets a clean slate, even umpire Ed Rapauno, gets a fresh start and can step out without fear of humiliation in Philadelphia, until that first call anyway. It’s a time when Jimmy Rollins and Jose Reyes have the same number of stolen bases, or a time when even Brad Lidge is no longer a…

    That was extremely fun to read probably because how true it is. I am new to the whole website and blogging, if you get the chance it would be great if you could read my first entry “Opening Day” and let me know if its any good. Im not really sure what to write about or anything and it would be helpful if someone told me who does. Thanks

      Ellsbury – Thanks for stopping by my blog, I have briefly searched for your blog, but it’s very hard to find a specific blog without knowing the name of the blog. At this point if you let me know your blog ‘url’ I will be happy to return the complement and stop by your blog.

    Congrats, Peter, as I believe this is the only time one could ever compare Albert to Milton and get away with it. LOL!
