and
~Will I be adding "2010" World Series! to the title of this thread??? *lol*

but first... back to 2008...

~~~~
I've got a pizza in the oven,
and the Phillies are playing the Rays in the first game of the world series,
and winning 2-0 in the 3rd.


Pretty awesome considering that this World Series thing
hasn't happened in Philly in a pretty long time. (1980?) *lol*

Anybody watching the game too?

~Smiles~

p.s. (M i x e y will probably appreciate this, too!)...
This game also gives me a perfect excuse to clean off the cob-webs over here and post something here in "Balls N All" *LoL*

Go Phillies!

Yes, Toad!

Go Phillies! They did it!
The first one has certainly been a great game. Both teams seem evenly matched talent wise, so it's fun to watch... and the pizza came out great, too! *LoL*
Here's a screen grab of the final stats of the first game.

I'm glad I posted the pic of the Ball Girls...
it was more fun looking at the pic than watching the second game...
Tampa Won.

Two ways to look at it...

The Rays played a Great Game
or
The Phillies didn't have a Great Game.

That's my very complex analysis of Game Two. *LoL*.

Well what do Ya know...

After torrential downpours and street flooding here in
the Philly area and sub-blurbs...
that of which, I had the extreme pleasure of driving through, last night...

Game Three of the 2008 World Series actually got played last night.

The game started 2+ hours late (at 10:00± PM)
with the rain and 'tsunami style downpour' weather finally ending.
We even lost internet here, but not TV... and at the field, they broke out the big hair dryers, and somehow got the entire ball field dry and ready for the really badly sung national anthem, and "playball".

It was a good game... a close game... once again,
and Philly won it just before 2:00am!
http://www.sportsline.com/mlb/scoreboard/20081025">
- 2008 WS Game Three Stats from CBS -

Game Four starts tonight at 8:29 PM Eastern.

The stadium area must be a totally nuts zoo right now...
the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Atlanta Falcons 27-14
and just got done playing...
The World Series with the Phillies & Rays starts in a few hours,
AND a Who Concert nearby is all going on at the same time.

Imagine a leisurely Sunday drive through that area.
Or perhaps... not.

Good luck to everybody today in sports and driving to anywhere land.

Just posting this now, because I've finally recovered ...  Wacko
 
I was AT Saturday's game! The "Monsoon" game. (Had tickets through work.)
 
My boss, two co-workers and I had the pleasure of seeing them pull out a win. The game was delayed 90 minutes as wind-blown sheets of rain came down ... but no matter, we stood under concourse roof, sucking down beers and munching doggies, waiting for the rain to stop. It finally did and I enjoyed my first World Series game ever ... amidst 49,500 other delerious Phillies Phans who enjoyed themselves with equal full-throated enthusiasm.
 
Seven or eight beers, three doggies, one victory, and several hours later I managed to get home and crawl into bed before the clock struck 4am.
 
Yesterday I was toast. Hadn't slept well and had mostly lost my voice. I hunkered down by the wood stove and waited for last night's game, which was most gratifying. Clap
 
The Phils are gonna wrap it up tonight ... feel it in my bones! I'll probably be bagging work to head down to Wednesday's parade, behaving badly and drinking too much amidst four times that many crazy Phillies Phans.
 
Go 'Fightin's !!!!!

They said it's a "suspended game" in a rain delay & has to be finished (because it's tied). If not tonight, tomorrow or Weds. But, they said Cole Hamels will not come back in to pitch. I'm guessing it's wait & see?

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.

— 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 - 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...."
http://www.philly.com/philly/hp/news_update/20081030_Phillies_fans_take_to_the_street.html - 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!

Go Bobby! Very cool!

~~~~~


And yes,,, OK, back when the Phillies last won a World Series in 1980,
well,
after the mayhem and smoke cleared from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980_World_Series - 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!

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 http://www.bobbyburnett.com/Bluesette.html - 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.

There was never any doubt.
 
Had company over watching the game last night so I wasn't posting, but I could well imagine people hitting this thread.
 
The Phillies simply have it all going on, at just the right time. Yankees, shmankees... the Fightin' Phils aren't intimidated by any ball club. This team is confident to a man. They know they can beat anyone, anytime, anywhere, and they tend to do just that. 
 
A Turnpike Series!.. It's going to be great!

PHILLIES 6, YANKEES 1
Lee Outpitches Sabathia, and Utley Hits Two Homers
The New York Times
By TYLER KEPNER
Published: October 28, 2009

"...Lee carved the Yankees with the precision of a master chef, allowing six hits and an unearned run in a 6-1 victory. Chase Utley homered twice off C. C. Sabathia, Lee’s former Cleveland teammate, who allowed no other runs and just two other hits in seven innings."

"Sabathia was very good, but Lee was outstanding. The Phillies did not warm up a reliever until the ninth, when the Yankees scored on a throwing error by Jimmy Rollins. Lee struck out 10 with no walks... ... ... "

This is a beautiful story Geno.  I know Jess and your mother in law must be thrilled!!!!!
 
I'm sort of thinking about the mayhem at the ball park, however... and thinking about whether Mum Mum's going to be safe there.  I'm picturing an 80+ woman with a can of beer on her head and a baseball popped up that the catcher missed... mosh pits... cats and dogs living together, etc...
 
But what do I know... it might be all solved with a "football bat"... not in Mum Mum's direction... JEEZ  LOL

The box seats are unbelievable... We may even catch glimpses of the two of them on the telly from the field-level camera shots at home plate!

Glad to know it's a safe place Jeff; but how about walking distance, etc.  I'm thinking about how my mom, who will be 84, could be nervous about not being able to keep up, even though she walks well.
 
I remember traveling with my 90 year old grandmother.  Travis and Mom and I took Nanny to see WWF in an arena.  That was a first!  LOL  Nanny had a blast and Travis was amazed to see his great grandmother following all of the action better than any of us.

It's true that Jess's G'ma will do a fair bit of walking to get into the stadium and down to the box seats.
 
But if she's a really big Phillies fan she's gonna be so jazzed to be there that she won't feel a thing until tomorrow!  lol 
 
But you're right MIXEY. She'll do a lot of walking. I hope she's up to it. If she has any issues, Citizens Bank Park can assist with electric carts and everything you can name in the way of help for elderly or disabled fans - especially when you're in the expensive seats.

Hi Everybody! i haven't gotten the first hand details yet from Jess about last night's game... It's still early here, and obviously, it was a long night at the game with the one and a half hour rain delay starting it all off.

I was tired just watching it all from the comfort of being home where it was dry and warm *LoL*. But I did cook out last night, (Steak over a wood fire)... and that rain was not fun... I also had to break out the good old VHS to record it all. I didn't see Jess or "MomMom" in any of the crowd shots, but might have missed a shot or two.

Anyway,,, good game until that Yankee's home run ball hit the camera... then it felt like things just fell apart for the Phillies. These two well matched teams really are GREAT!

Here's the final stats from last night...

 players millions of dollars, but check out their batting
 helmets... They look like they been dragged behind
 a truck, and then ran over and pulled out of a dumpster.
      They can't afford decent helmets? WTF?

Well, this is an exciting World Series, regardless of the outcome.
 
A few sportscasters have commented on the fact that the last several World Series have gone down in fairly predictable fashion.... many have ended within 5 games with little drama.
 
Not this time!
 
I'm looking for The Phils to claw their way to victory in game six and set the stage for a win in the seventh. I think they can do it.
 
Time to set their sights on beating a tired Andy Petitte...

— Utley Muscles Into Rare Company —

www.NYTimes.com
By BEN SHPIGEL
Published: November 3, 2009

"PHILADELPHIA — Phillies Manager Charlie Manuel used to say that Kirby Puckett was his favorite player. And then he met Chase Utley.

“The only thing Kirby might have on Chase is he’s more flamboyant because he smiles a lot,” Manuel said. “Chase is a little bit different.”

Utley was not smiling Monday night even after extending the Phillies’ season by powering two home runs in their heart-pounding 8-6 victory over the Yankees in Game 5 of the World Series.

That is because he was in the interview room, his least favorite place within Citizens Bank Park, forced to answer questions about the company he joined with his commanding performance. With five home runs in all, Utley tied the Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson, who dominated in 1977, for most in a single World Series. As he spoke about that honor, Utley showed no emotion — no nod, no laugh and, no, no smile, either.

“It’s not my favorite part,” Utley said. “My favorite part is playing the game.”... ... "

Congratulations to the Yankees.  New York must be going nuts right now!!
 
I wonder what would have happened if the ball hadn't hit the camera in game what ever it was. 
 
I have a feeling we're going to be back on this thread next year saying go Phillies.

I feel badly for The Phillies.

Here's my observation, having followed them very closely all season and particularly closely in the post-season games.
 
The entire team (with maybe the exception of Cliff Lee, who just seems to be automatic) suffered a classic case of emotional letdown following their win over The Dodgers in the National League Championship Series. That's really what happened.
 
The Phillies were hitting on all cylinders in the NLCS with the Dodgers. Their pitching was strong; the entire lineup was getting clutch hits. Ryan Howard was in the zone. The entire team was loose, confident, and having fun. No surprise they beat L.A. The Phillies all assumed the Yankees would be their next victim, as did a lot of people.
 
But after they beat the Dodgers - all the air went out of the team. They let down. And they never managed to rekindle the fire. This has happened to many teams heading into the World Series. 
 
Except for Cliff Lee, our pitchers lost their edge. Ryan Howard forgot how to hit. Crucial defensive mistakes were made in the field. Everybody played very tentatively, even at home. It was like a different team than the one that played the Dodgers.
 
In the end.... it was all mental. They disconnected. And to a man they all probably felt that. 
 
The good news is, the entire core of this team will be back next year and will once again be in the thick of it. I'm a Phillies fan and I'll be back out there next year cheering them on again.
 
A fine year boys..... even if you didn't win the series.   ClapClapClap
