Like many events in my life, I had pictured it much differently. I thought I’d see the Phillies win it all somewhere in Philadelphia surrounded by red and white-clad die hards. Instead it was Chris, a Canadian, and I in an empty bar in Germany.

But, hey, I’ll take it.

What else could a proud Philadelphian be doing at 1:30 A.M. in Berlin, Germany than watching what’s left of Game Five of the 2008 World Series - a chance at seeing the Phillies beating the Tampa Bay Rays.

Sean has particularly followed closely, despite our international travels.

We had dinner, went out for a few beers, but now we’re getting ready to amble over to a sports bar that will be showing the only American baseball left to be played. Hope you’re tuning in to too.

Why can’t us?

Oh, and Peter Gammons is lame.. and a jerk.

Checking the Phillies score, Game 2 of the World Series

Posted by Sean Blanda on Oct 24, 2008 in Experiences

Unless we can con some bar into staying upon until 6 a.m. it is very unlikely we will be able to watch the Phillies take on the Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series. Something awfully tough for me, as I’ve posted before.  We are resigned to something a little less exciting to check the score.  Below has become our morning routine ever since the Phillies made the NLCS.
