Hardcore Mets fans, you might want to avert your eyes. Everybody else, this is something you should check out.
This here is my buddy’s log book of every game the Phillies played in 2008 season summarized in one sentence or at least something that almost resembles a sentence. I had no idea that this artifact even existed until after the Phils won game 5. The dude was going nuts high fiving, drinking champagne out of a bottle, taking pictures with a dead stingray (seriously), and then he remembered his log. Turns out he watched every game last season, which is an achievement in itself, then he wrote down what happened. Maybe a little strange? Certainly. Now that the Phillies are the “2008 World Champions of Baseball” this logbook is something he’s going to hang on to forever and show his grand kids. Hey, it’s Philladelphia- I wouldn’t be surprised if this thing ended up in a museum.
So I personally happened to be in attendance at the Phil’s game on July 4th and it’s been documented in my own way here. I also was in Florida for the hottest baseball game of all time. It looks like his logbook and my stadium musings are in sync (July 20th was the U-V bowl). I wonder if he’s going to sit around on quiet nights eating pretzels and staring at this thing.
If I owned a cheese steak restaurant (hello 99 Miles to Philly) I’d want this on my wall. Blown up. Framed in Gold.
Almost freaky in an OCD way. Am I right?
Thomas Jefferson couldn’t help but be impressed.
I still can’t get over the fact that the one time in his life my friend set upon watching and documenting the entire Philadelphia baseball season turns out to be a championship year.
The power of the mojo is everywhere my friends.
