It’s been well established we’re Phillies fans. I’m home tonight and sitting with Helaine here at MLB’s Connecticut hub. The Phils video is on the computer. In another window the little dots representing the Atlanta Braves are prancing around. On the big TV we’ve got the MLB network playing.
My wife has conjured most of this configuration. Impressive. I assume ESPN has producers who do what she’s doing (not as well) and get paid for it. It doesn’t eat at them as it eats at her.
“Cole Hamels just tweeted ‘FML’.” That’s Helaine.
Then she admitted she actually didn’t really have Twitter on. She was now in full worry mode as the Phils had allowed a 10-0 lead to become a 10-6 led. All of a sudden the insurmountable is surmountable!
I’m a fan. She’s a fanatic… or more aptly for the Phillies a Phanatic.
I have becoming a bigger fan, a more knowledgeable fan under Helaine’s tutelage. Baseball’s more exciting this way and this year’s National League East and Wild Card races are crazily close and very exciting.
The Phils lead the Braves by ½ game! They play each other six times before the season’s over. It could very well go down to the last game.
This game’s over. Phils win. Helaine can go to sleep.
She doesn’t anguish each game. She anguishes each pitch!
