I can’t believe it…not one word about the Phillies??? Come on!!
She’s right. You’d think with all I’ve written about my family’s Phllies phandom I’d have put together an entry right away. After all Roy Halladay pitched a no hitter yesterday–a game for the ages.
Halladay was so good it seemed too easy. The outcome was never in doubt. I was rooting for a steamroller to crush an ant!
Nearly everyone was impressed. Not everyone.
John Fay baseball beat writer for the Cincinnati Enquirer spoke with Orlando Cabrera of the Reds.
He and the umpire pitched a no-hitter. He gave him every pitch. Basically, we had no chance.
Last night I tweeted it was sour grapes on Cabrera’s part. It was. What a jerk.
This may sound stupid, but as impressed as I was with Halladay I never felt the adrenaline that comes from watching a closely fought game. That was missing. The Phils dominated thoroughly. Think juggernaut!
Am I asking too much to hope for a win with excitement? Maybe I should just be careful what I wish for!
