Don't You Fret None

Okay, it's a slow April like usual. The Phillies have lost their first two games. I am confident most of you are aware that our Phillies have overcome slow starts the past two seasons. However, if there are still some phans who can't lean on those serious rebounds, I've got just one phrase for you..."It's Ring Day!" As in the Phillies won the World Series 5 months ago, and the players receive their individual recognition today, so relax.

You are still allowed to enjoy that World Series victory. If rings aren't enough for you, the Phillies have been invited to the White House by President Obama, next Tuesday, in recognition of their championship. And if that's not enough, go have a shot of something good and call a therapist.

Thanks for the link over.

The 2009 rings are much nicer than the 80s ones!

Harry Kalas Phorever...

Legendary broadcaster Harry Kalas passed away today. Harry collapsed while preparing to call today's game against the Washington Nationals. So many phans will feel as though we've lost a member of our own families. I feel as though I've lost a part of myself, but Harry enhanced my love of the great sport we call baseball and I will always carry that love, and Harry, in my heart. I've stated on this page before that I consider Harry more of a Phillie than anyone who wears the uniform as an active member of the roster. Harry Kalas was a Phillie. Moreso, Harry Kalas was the Phillies. Please share your thoughts and memories of Harry in the comments section, or send them to PhoulBallz (at) verizon (dot) net.
