we now return you to your regularly scheduled boyfriend.
but seriously folks… YAAAAY! WOOOO! GO PHILS!!! i didnt even like baseball until like a month ago. we dont have a pro ball team back where i come from, so its never been a big deal. that’s prolly why its been so amazing to see the whole city go absolutely nuts for it. i understand though; louisville did the same thing x yrs ago when U of L got into the Final Four. all hours of the night, floodin the streets, bumper to bumper traffic. ppl on foot. ppl in cars. ppl ON cars. literally.
that was a big deal, but super small compared to what went on last night. my neighborhood was fairly calm; i took a walk around and some corners were full of people yelling randomly at passers by; all the horns were honking. some girl in a ‘girls gone wild’ hoodie ran around the neighborhood twice yelling GO PHILS! by the time i’d made it to one end. lol. it was fun. meanwhile, on broad street:
omg how did he even get up there??
needless to say, most of my coworkers arent here today. if i wanted to go ‘where’s waldo’ on that picture up there, i cld prolly find at least 4 of them in there.
in conclusion, very cool stuff. this is sort of new to me, since im unaccustomed to living in a city with any kind of pro sports team. i think i cld be more moved by everyone else’s emotion and hysteria than i am by the actual win. i dunno tho; im really happy for everybody.
and by far, my favorite part of the game: phillies fans took the time out of the rabid cheering to boo Mayor Nutter after he took the mic @ the stadium after the win. lmao! what assholes. i love philly.
