Mmmm, I smell toast!

Oh wait, that's the Yankees' season burning in flames! Congrats Detroit! Oh well, there are three former Phillies that still know the agony of defeat.

Thanks for rubbin' it in... I guess that's what I get for rooting for a team run by Steinbrenner!

...just for the record, I was a fan when I was listening to the team on the only AM station in upstate NY that my transistor radio could tune in when oriented just so... I knew nothing of the Steinbrenner madness then, only of how fantastic it would be to play along side the most famous mullet in baseball history... Donny Baseball! --Don Mattingly!

Don't worry, Jeter will pull them through this one...

Billy Martin!!!!!!

I used to sit on the front porch with my grandmom and listen to Phillies games on her transister radio. It even had a black leather cover/case.

A neighbor across the street had a booming voice and he would sit on his porch, too...he was the "other" play-by-play guy. It was great. I can smell the fresh-cut grass and see the fire-flies now. That grandmom died a year ago the 10th...she was 91.

God bless the legacy she left...

Hey, I had that same black leather casing too! It would lessen the blow my radio made when it would fall from the tie-wire harness attached to the bunk above me and land on my forehead...

...I miss fire-flies...

I also miss going to the little league games and getting foul balls for free snow cones....and playing run-the-bases.
