You like the Phillies??

THE PHILLIES WON THE PENNANT!!



Oh man, was that exciting or what?? Small ball! I love small ball. I love hits that drop into the outfield, that bring a man home. I think I enjoy that more than home runs.

I, erm, actually didn't see the end, and what I assume was a celebration in an almost-silent stadium. Chris and I were snoozing on the couch by then. But hooray anyway! I almost started to tear up on the ride in this morning, listening to everyone on the news, yelling and hollering and filling the streets.

We also watched some of the debate during the commercials. (I'm still getting used to DKNJ, the man who has never voted, being all hype about this stuff. "Can you turn it?" he'd ask, 0.005 seconds after every third out.) McCain looked terrible. Pale and sickly, and grimacing and smarmy. And his eyes! They're too dark. He looks like a shark. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. The faces he was pulling whilst Barry spoke were terrible. Does he not know what he looks like? Man. Just three more weeks and this will all be over.

Happy Thursday everyone!

Maybe I need a phillies icon?
This is fanfuckingtastic! We ran out into little side street last night and a guy a few doors down was just shouting YEAH! YEAH! PHILLIES! YEAH! out his door. Our neighbors across the street came out and one was wearing her rally towel as a hat, the others in their "irish" phillies garb (which I inherently object to since our colors are not at all green and white) and we all hugged. It was awesome. People were driving down the street just honking and yelling all night.

The only people who care more about home runs are the people who're too drunk to actually pay attention to the game.

Also, I accidentally kinda wrote "whore." Whoops.
