World Series Parade

In Phillies on November 4, 2008 at 8:54 am

I was there!

The Phillies have only won a World Series Championship once before in 1980. Though I was alive in 1980, I wasn’t in Pennsylvania at the time nor do I recall much from that year. It was 28 years ago. Whose to say where I’ll be in another 28 years. As far as I was concerned, this was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Don’t tell Dan that. Poor guy had to work.

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the day.


Painted Men


Phanatic!

End of the parade – People filed in behind the line of police and Phillie staff

To see the rest of the pictures, peak into my Picasa album.

World Series Parade 2008

 

Don’t forget to vote today!

After voting, we’ll be heading into the city to get Stoned. Tria, a wine, beer, and cheese cafe, is hosting an event featuring beer brewed by Stone Brewery. (Get it? Stone Brewery. Get Stoned. I thought it was a cute play on words).

  1. oh, sounds yummy. Of course, the point IS to ingest, yes? Raise a pint/glass for me! I sure wish I could have voted today, but as I am not a citizen… well, I’m just hoping for the best.

  2. I’m glad you are reveling in the win :)

  3. I like how most of your pix are of cute-ish boys!

  4. Go Phillies! I love it when teams win who’ve not won in a long time (or ever.) I bet my hubby wishes the Orioles would get a break like that. LOL.
