Philly Pics

Thanks again for all of your kind words. Now, back to our regularly-scheduled blog, with pics from Citizens Bank Park, now in its third year as the home of the Philadelphia Phillies. Joe was on the trip with me, so a few pics from there:

We had beautiful weather in the City of Brotherly Love.

The park is a mile or more from downtown, as it shares parking with Lincoln Financial Field (Eagles), as well as the Wachovia Center (Sixers and Flyers) and the Wachovia Spectrum (former home of the Sixers and Flyers and now home of the minor league Philadelphia Phantoms)

The press box.

Another shot of downtown. William Penn’s statue adorns the roof of City Hall. It is 548 feet tall and used to be the tallest building in town. Also the Wall of Fame is in the outfield.  Dallas Green was inducted while we were there.

The Ol’ Lefthander and me during a night game.

Now they couldn’t have a Philly ballpark without one of these, could they?

.

Night game… what a series! (Reds won 2 of 3. Two games went into extra innings.)

.

One more shot, as the Broering family from Alexandria, Ky., stopped by the booth recently. I promised them a spot on the BBB. Dad Richard with sons Matt (13), Joe (8) and Mark (6). Marty and I are your happy hosts.

Have you tried a hotdog at Philly? They are the nastiest hotdogs of all 14 parks I’ve been to, and I’d go out on a limb and say they’re probably the nastiest hotdogs in all of baseball without having tried dogs in every park. It’s like eating a salt mine. It makes you think about what you’re actually eating, which just makes it worse.
