MLB Philadelphia Phillies, Opening Day.

After the bitter cold, snowy and ice filled winter, I thought this day would never get here.

Hamels gets the start and Shane Victorino will make it in the outfield for the Red Sox’s.

Let’s play ball.

MLB Philadelphia Phillies Pull Out Win 5-4 Against First Place Atlanta Braves, July 5, 2013.

My cousin Marjorie (another die-hard Phillies Fan) and I decided to do a mental health break and attend a Phillies game.  It was an unbelievable event as Howard took one deep when we were walking late into the Citizen’s Bank. Score was 5-0 in 5th. Then, the Braves started creeping back in the 7th as Lee was having a meltdown. 5-4, Oh no, as Marjorie and I started yelling to the field to our beloved Phillies. Papelbon ( the matador, For Whom the Bell Tolls) and Chooch came in  the 9th and closed down the first place chop chop tomahawk, Atlanta Braves.  ( I always despised that chant)

Praise the Lord for little things in life.

Hope still lies in the Phiilies as they have a long home stand before the All Star Break July 16, 2013 ( BTW, that day is my Birthday)

Excellent seats, great time.  Then we headed to Xfinity Live for Chickie and Pete’s famous Crab Fries.

Below are some photos from the game. Everyone likes their picture taken. ( even the Mets fan sitting with the girl next to us.  He was rooting for the Braves because he hates the Phils. But that was OK. )

All was well at the Ballpark last night.  The Girls (women) didn’t have their children with them. We could yell, yell and yell some more.  They tend to sublimate our limitless amount of energy.

Lee, Phils pick up crucial win over first-place Braves

Cliff Lee, MLB,, Philadelphia Phillies and Stranglehold by Ted Nugent?

Was I hearing correctly during today’s broadcast of the Phillies and the Brewers? As this is my Sunday ritual, viewing the Phillies and hanging around the house.

Cliff Lee was on the mound today as the starting pitcher. When he batted, “Stranglehold” came on. “Stranglehold” Lyrics Click Link

Seems there is a playlist of music hand-picked  by each player that comes to bat at Citizens Bank Park. Some players have multiple.  I knew that Chase Utley played Kashmir by Zeppelin, but now the entire team has their tunes.   Click Link to view the Play list, quite extensive.

I turned to my son is disbelief and showed him the playlist. He commented, “Really, they play a children’s game Really? He played little league T ball @ 5 years, minors, Double AA,  Triple AAA then majors at 11-12yrs at Cherry Hill National and Cherry Hill Babe Ruth 13- 14 years. He as well is an avid sports fan.

I asked, “If you were a Pro baseball Player what music would you bat to?”  “Nyan Cat, the Techo Cat.” What, please explain.” “No one would take me seriously and I would screw with the pitchers head.. They would show a continuous loop on the screen at Citizen Bank Park.” He showed me the video below. Wow. I did not know the world of Nyan Cat as the video as over 94 million hits.  Incredible.

Myself, I would still stick to Rock and Roll.

BTW,  Phillies won 7-5.  You go Cliff Lee. Keep playing  “Stranglehold.” Please, stay in Philly. Trade rumors up already.
