I know Philly gets a bad rap in the media, as a city of holligans, who throw batteries at players, snowballs at Santa, beat their wives, ect.. but last nite, when the Phils won, the fans went crazy.. parting in the streets, and there were NO ARRESTS! No car fires, vandalism, no nonsense that you see in other cities when teams win pennants or championships.
Kudos to the Phillie fans for having fun, and not giving the great city of Philadelphia a black eye!
Now, think back 15 years, and think about who you where then, and fast forward to today.
In 1993, I was 27, dating my future wife, and just bought my 1st house. I was playing a ton of competitive street hockey, and not running. Hitting the bars every weekend, just enjoying the care free, little responsibility lifestyle that you lead in your 20's!
Now 15 years later, I've been married for 13 years, and have 2 sons, lost my mother, bought and sold my 1st house.
We've been in our home for 12 years now, and bought a shore house just about 3 years ago. I have spent the better part of 2008 training to run a marathon. I play the occasional street hockey game, but enjoy coaching my oldest son in the sports he enjoys!
Boy how time flies!
I know it's cliche', but enjoy today, because to quote John Mellencamp "Days turn to minutes & minutes to memories...".
Looking ahead, maybe we'll talk about what was going on in 1980, IF a championship happens.
But after all, this is Philadelphia we are talking about, so the bottom is going to fall anytime.
Anyone who was watching the games in LA, are you as happy as I am , that I don't have to look at Mary Hart anymore?!! Her, Pat Sajak, Penny Marshall, they got probably more airtime than Manny did! Good riddance to them!
