“Chipper with a Ric Flair to LF” is right there with “I’ve been to 2 rodeos and 3 goat ropins, but I’ve never seen anything like this” as my favorite Joe Simpson sound-bites courtesy MLB.com highlights.
Hey gang. Sorry for my absence. Been running around with family and been out watching the games this weekend. What a weekend! I am stupid giddy right now. Just beside myself. And I love how the Phils series shapes up. Did I mention that I’m giddy?!?!?!?
I’m tempted to listen to the last April or 1st May show just to get a better idea of how far the team has come in a month. They played weaker competition, but they took care of business. That’s a far improvement from recent years when they inexplicably would drop a series to the Pirates or Reds(when they were bad). April 8-14, May 19-8. I hope the May version of the Bravos shows up for June. Tough schedule ahead, but if they play like they have been they’ll be fine.
Yeah Mara – I’m very, very excited. Was hanging out with Ballpark Frank last night and he’s pumped up too. I’m jealous that you’ll be at all three games. What a series! A month ago it felt like we were going to be 10 – 15 games out of first place to start June.
I was hoping I’d get to meet Ballpark Frank! Don’t be too jealous…I’m not going to tomorrow’s game just Tuesday and Wesnesday. Wednesday will be with 11 other people and only a handful of them care about the game. I hope I get to watch tomorrow’s game. I hope we win!!!!!
New show soon or not due to the holiday? McOut, sometimes I like to listen to last years’ show. Cracks me up. One time Steve called this “the Schafer Era”. He saw nothing of a broken wrist in his crystal ball.
Happy Memorial Day ABT! I wonder if anyone on here has served our country? A friend *ahem* once told me I needed to guard against giving away too much personal info online. So if that question requires too specific an answer then just know that I thank you.
