Around 2 million people were out today to watch the Phillies World Series parade. Those who missed it were likely watching from their office building or on a television. Around 2 million got to see Pat Burrell lead the parade. He his everything that is Philly. A constant roller coaster ride of a carrer, but he finally came out on top. I hope we bring him back. 30 hr/100 rbi guys are hard to come by.
It was such an amazing experience. I had tickets to Lincoln Financial Field, but because it was so packed, they shut down all the southbound trains. Yeah, I probably should have went down closer to the stadiums to watch the parades, but I just know for next time...and there will be a next time. For almost 25 years, I started to feel that I'd never be able to see a parade.
Well, it finally happened. We are World Fucking Champions!
If you missed the parade, above is the view right on Broad Street between Walnut and Sansom.
I still cannot believe it!
