As Hanukkah wraps up, so does the Top 8 Videos list

It's phinally here- The night we've all been waiting for. It is the 8th night of Hanukkah and that means The Phoul Ballz is bringing you The Best Phillies Video of 2008 (that I could find on Youtube).

This video is brought to you straight from the hometown radio broadcast booth. There is a combination of some things that make this one of the greatest clips I have ever seen. The main thing is, of course, the Phillies winning the World Series. Next, is Harry Kalas' classic call of the happenings on the field. And the other is "The Wheeler". Yes, The Wheeler is the party dance performed by Phils color analyst Chris Wheeler as he quietly celebrates, so that Harry can make the call. Fist pumping, near-humping gestures, high fives, arm thrusts and more all add up to the hottest moves this side of Danny Jackson's Hulk Hogan impressions.




*BONUS* These will be your honorable mentions for this list. Consideration could be made for having these videos rank in a tie at #1, since they represent the greatness of a World Championship and two of the videos include Harry Kalas as well.

1st honorable mention...Raising the 2008 World Championship Banner-


2nd honorable mention...Harry Kalas taunts the Phillies' rivals and sings "High Hopes"-


3rd honorable mention...Chase Utley sums up the 2008 season-
