Alas... I just can't see the game being played tonight.
 
My office is a 30 minute drive from the ballpark and the weather is HORRIBLE. Cold and rainy with 20-30 mph wind gusts. It was actually SNOWING here at 11am.
 
The field will not be in better shape tonight. The infield is still wet under the tarp and the outfield will be worse. They'll need Wellingtons out there.
 
It will still be raining at 8:30. It will be colder. The wind will be blowing harder than last night. Fuhgeddaboudit.

Jeff, Nora & Toad,

Yes cold wet and miserable... and the forecast for tomorrow nights' continuation of the game is not exactly great baseball weather.

Here's a weather forecast screen grab at this moment from ...

www.weather.com/outlook

Brrrrrrrr
Imagine being at bat with a fast ball coming at you at 97 MPH
when it feels like 30°s?
Oh joy.

— Phillies fans take to the street —
By Patrick Kerkstra and Kristen Graham
INQUIRER STAFF WRITERS - Posted October 30th, 2008
http://www.philly.com/philly/hp/news_update/20081030_Phillies_fans_take_to_the_street.html

"A final, biting Brad Lidge slider.

And then, bedlam.

A scream of triumph decades in the making burst forth from bars and living rooms across Philadelphia last night as the Phillies won their first World Series in 28 years.

Citizens Bank Park trembled beneath the feet of 46,000 ecstatic fans. Teeming masses of humanity instantly seized South Broad Street, the intersection of Frankford and Cottman, and Main Street in Manayunk. Center City was so crammed with revelers, it was a challenge even to move.

Tens of thousands of euphoric college students from Drexel, Temple and Penn spontaneously marched en masse to join the party. The few cars on the roads were overloaded with fans, who rode on roofs, trunks, even front windows...."
www.philly.com/philly/ (Full Story Continues Here)
~~~~~~~~~

In the "Celebration Overload" right after the Final Game, there was some craziness in the streets as the city of Philadelphia, it's suburbs and entire region PA, NJ, DE etc. around and in that which calls "Philly" our home town... went crazy! i clearly remember going out on the 'D'Street deck here in the woods, and still it sounding like the 4th of july going on top of New Years Eve from every direction. Where did all of those fireworks come from? *lol*

Right here on the SoulfulPlanet Forum, many of our SoulfulPlanet members and readers coast to coast were here posting and interacting live in this thread during many of the games, as well as when that final pitch and celebration erupted... (as I recall Mixey on the "left coast", Nora at the "Joisey Shore", Toad holding down "Motown", Jeff... as in "there at the one of the games and the win-day-after festivities", Dream, MickeyMac, etc., etc., (help me here, I'm doing this from freakin' memory while I was celebrating here at "D'Street, too! *lol*) all at various times, as these games, rain delays and celebrations went on)...
..AND also as it was all going down, live.... too much fun!

Downtown on Broad Street... all in all, not too much severe damage in the grand scope of things, despite some very dangerous "stupid" moments, no doubt... such as:


—Phillies Fans Climb on a Firetruck 1 —


     —Phillies Fans Climb on a Firetruck 2 —
     

        —Phillies Fans Climb on a Firetruck 3 —
       

and from the "Department of Why?" one might ponder what this has to do with Winning a World Series? *LoL*

— Streetlight Riot on Broad St. - Phillies World Series Clip 1 —

...well luckily, nobody died.

But the "real" official celebration continued on Friday (Halloween) October 31st, 2008!

And our very own Jeff Knapp was there live, with nearly 2 million people celebrating in South Philly, and he posted some of his great pics, (which I'm sure that Jeff, being the stellar great guy that he is, will no doubt re-post back up in here when he gets a half of a nano-second to do so...*lol*)
and yes...
things like this classic moment happened "live" there and on the TV News.

Mixey,
Cool... no problem!

Also... I have recorded many many albums with Bobby Burnett over the years in Philly, Bobby singing with The Al Raymond Big Band, with Ken Moyer's Kickin' Arrangements , etc.,
... well...
Bobby did this one for the Phillies, and I just found it, and wanted to add it into this post too!

— Bobby Burnette - Goin' Back to Philadelphia, PA- A Tribute to the Phillies —



Go Bobby! Very cool!
~Geno


~~~~~


And yes,,, OK, back when the Phillies last won a World Series in 1980,
well,
after the mayhem and smoke cleared from that one,
I had the pleasure of recording and mixing a massive album
at Alpha International Recording Studios in Philly,
as the Chief Engineer on the project ... with
—Peter Nero & The Philly Pops Orchestra
with Tug McGraw Narrating Live with Full Orchestra & Choir... —

... this album...


...and I found this jpg on the net...
selling the LP for many thousands of dollars
that originally was under $39.99 when it was first released, new...
      

Anyway,
Lets just put it this way...
this was one of those awesome, classic sessions
that I will never forget.

It was a pleasure and an honor working with Tug and Peter and the full Philly Pops Orchestra, The Philadelphia Boys Choir, and everybody involved and fully immersed in the excitement of
the Phillies winning the World Series in Philly.    

It never gets old!
~BigSmiles & MuchLove To All~

p.s. Go Phillies!... and Update 2009 Note: see next page!

This is too cool!!!!

Bobby Burnett saw this "Go Phillies in the 2008 World Series" thread here on our SoulfulPlanet Forum,
(see previous page with Bobby's - "Goin' Back to Philadelphia, PA - Phillies Video")
and just tracked down my phone number so we could talk!
TOO COOL! (We'd both lost each other's phone numbers after a number of studio moves.)
OMG! Great talking to him again after some years had gone by since the last
Bobby Burnett "Winterlude CD" that we did together.

Bobby's doing Great... He hasn't changed a damned bit,
still funny as hell, talented as hell,
and a GREAT GREAT GUY!

I told Bobby to keep poking around here, read up and then get in here and join us!
((( NOTE: Not only can Bobby Burnett sing right over top of a great kickin' Big Band going full tilt like it's nothing... or sing the National Anthem at a Sold Out Game...
wait until you hear his chops on harmonica!!!!!!! ))) here's a little example...
-The Vocal and Harmonica Artistry of Bobby Burnett -

                                  

Incredible Talent... Real Musicians still kickin' it... from right here in Philly.

Bobby said that he is posting more video's soon, and we'll get them up here on the Forum too, probably next week...

Too Cool! ... and come on SPRING!

The Phillies have one more game to play with The Dodgers, but I think The Dodgers are done.
 
The Phillies are on a roll. Howard, Ruiz, and Werth are red hot right now. Hitters up and down their lineup are hitting and chalking up RBI's. Cliff Lee and Pedro Martinez have looked unstoppable.
 
Unless The Dodgers play the best game of their season Wednesday night that'll probably be it for LA...  and The Phils will be in their second World Series in as many years.
