Do you mind not trashing my town?

This one goes out to all those people who had their cars flipped over or smashed in (I saw a car all busted up at Broad & Ellsworth today), to the statue of the Man Holding the Umbrella, to the postal carriers who had their boxes knocked over, to the parents in Mayfair who couldn’t get their babies to bed, to the poor young ladies who were flashing teenagers Mardi Gras style, and to Joey Mahoney’s Russian neighbor who really did not know what was going on.  Sorry about last night.

Sorry about the frat boys jumping through fire on Broad Street, for the luggage store getting robbed, and sorry about that Jeanne Zelasko. I founda a bunch of youtube videos here-not great quality, but this guy was really bummed about the situation and was in the right place at the right time.

The AP actually called the outburst last night minor, although many personal stories would say otherwise.  My one friend made the observation that so many of the people doing idoiotic things came in from out of town to trash the place.  It made him want to go up to Wayne, PA, and do some “celebrating”!

I do love that Bud Selig (MLB Commissioner) got booed when he gave Charlie the WS Trophy.

I’m glad I was at home, and I had an AMAZING time last night!  And I can’t wait to take the kids to BW tomorrow!

ripped off by the rain

Man, last night’s baseball game was such a ripoff.  Tonight was even a better night for it.  Never should have gotten it going.  Now what?

1.  Did Wm Penn just come back from the dead to bring the rain on the day that the Phillies were no doubt going to bust that curse?

2.  Is this the spark that the Rays need to turn it around?  The middle of their lineup has looked terrible until the rain started pouring down.

3.  Do the Phils have enough to beat the Rays in a short game?-our bullpen vs. theirs?

It was insulting when the MLB leadership said that they weren’t calling it because of the convenient tie.  No Philadelphia sports fan in their right gourd wants to win the World Series on a game that ended because of rain.  We want Brad Lidge on the hill, or at least Victorino hitting a home run.

One more, Uncle Charlie!  One more!

feasted

great love feast tonight.  i seem to frequently forget to bring my camera to get some pics, although I guess most of us do.

I did upload some pics from my cell’s World Series party the other night here.  Game 2 loss was kind of brutal, but it was still a great time to be together like that.

They playgroup carved some pumpkins and MG took a bunch of photos (Marni & Lo, you a bunch of super cute ones of your girls!).  The set is here. Here’s Ada and Lily showing off the gourd art.
