On The Brink

On the most precipitous day in the last 25 years of Philadelphia sports history, I am in the airport headed to Toronto. The red and white Phillies d├ęcor brightens my mood a bit as do the legions of Phils-bedecked fans headed out of town.

It's hard to explain the feeling I had as I drove past The Bank this morning. I can't tell you how much I want to be here in Philly tonight to be part of the mayhem as Cole pitches the Phils to the city's first championship since 1983. Instead I'll be in some sports bar in another country! Ahh the trials of a Philadelphia fan.

Well, have a safe trip and good luck. Toronto fans ought to be buying the drinks in thanks for 1993. :)

That wasn't meant to be a shot as much as a suggested way to get free booze. :)
