Here I am, at the ballpark, awaiting the raising of the 2008 Championship Flag!

I was in a sea of RED, at the corner of Broad & Walnut for the parade.
It took planes, trains & automobiles after the parade passed, to get my brother & I back to Citizen's Bank Park for the finale, but we made it!
Thanks to the brother & sister from Michigan, who gave us a lift from 12th & Washington, to the ballpark!

A random crowd shot from our vantage point at Broad & Walnut.

The best mascot in the business... The Phillie Phanatic!

Awwwww man! What great shots!!!! We were going to go but I woke up too late so we skipped it and later found out from others about the SEPTA fiasco. We would have been stranded and had a 20 miler this morning so we sat it out and saw it on TV.

But what a beautiful day for a parade! And you had a GREAT spot! That's right where we were going to go to, Broad & Walnut!!!

Glad you had such a good time! What an amazing day it was in Philadelphia yesterday!
