Gathering and washing red&white items to wear to tomorrow's Phillies' game. Glad it's a day game like we always had when I was a kid.
I remember the neighborhood fathers taking turns walking the kids to Shibe Park to watch the games on Saturdays. We'd each carry our brown bag lunches, sit in the bleachers and cheer like mad. Good times . Good memories.Let's go Phils!!
