The excitement was palpable in our house last night as we sat around the dinner table discussing our beloved Phillies. It's no secret, Philly fans are passionate. Our enthusiasm is famous (notorious?) but one thing is certain, we are sincere.
A year ago, when Harry Kalas died of heart disease the fans mourned the loss of one of the greatest voices in baseball. And, although defeated in the World Series last year, we saluted our players, held our heads high and looked towards the future (Halladay!).
As we head into another exciting (and hopefully long!) season, the fans are pumped, ready for another run at the title, even with all its ups and downs.
