To My Son Jordan, Thank You For A Brilliant Birthday.

Yes, I had to give Jordan a place on my blog. He was my chief photographer.  Jordan took his Mother up to New York City, carried her heavy gym bag throughout the city, from mid- town to upper West side, SoulCycle to Steps, back and forth on the subway. Down to Times Square,  as we watched Cliff Lee in the 5th, pitch @ Ruby Tuesday’s during 2013 All Star Game and boarded the train back home.  We were day 4-5th day in sweltering heat wave. But it is always sunny on my birthday. The concrete jungle of the Big Apple was hot as heck. The car stalled before we got on highway to NYC and we pushed it to the side waited 10 minutes. (BTW, his Mother is an old motor head, first car was a 326, 67′ Firebird)  He looked and said, “No way.”  I replied, “As soon as we get on 295 North, God’s Angels will take care of the car with their wings, let’s go.” He believed, as did I. We proceeded to Hamiliton Train Station exceeding the speed of 90 mph and boarded NJ Transit to Penn Station. Then as we got on the 11:05pm train back home as he had work the next day. We laughed so hard at some of the photos we took, I almost wet my skirt. ( Oh I had the back up camera, just in case the primary lost juice, it did.)

Thank you Jordan. God Bless You.  This was the best gift ever. No card necessary. I had a blast.  I do not want the summer to end.

I know you carry a heavy heart right now.  Just give it to God.  HE will take care of all your worries.  That is what I do. You just got to believe.

Cliff Lee, MLB All-Star, Philadelphia Phillies, Stare of Death, July 16, 2013?

What did I miss? I did not see the beginning of the game as I was taking spin class. I did see Lee pitch in the 5th and the error.  All they are talking about on Sports Radio in Philly is the Eagles because baseball is dark. I went on my cousin Marjorie’s Facebook and she noted it.  So it was time for me to blog about it.

New York Yankees, New York Mets Fans, The joke is on you Suckers!  Yankee’s, Lee didn’t want you and the Met’s are @ the bottom of our division, I believe with the Marlins. Ha Ha!

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.
