Phillies Fever

What would make a over 50 mom of 2 scream, jump up and down and wave a rally towel in freezing cold weather (while standing for 4 hours)? Anyone who knows me would bet the bank that it would not be me! Well, last night, it was me! An opportunity came up for me to go the NCLS playoff game between the LA Dodgers and the Philadelphia Phillies. The opportunity was for standing room only tickets. Since I love baseball and the Phillies I decided to brave the cold temperatures and go to the game. I had such a great time! I sure that I embarassed my daughter when for some stange reason I could not stop waving the rally towel or screaming (and I did not have an adult beverage so I cannot blame it on that). Somehow, when 99% of the crowd is doing it at the same time it seems okay. There was a lot to scream about (home runs, triples, stolen bases and great catches). The Phillies won 11-0. I was still frozen when I got home last night. I went to sleep around 1 pm. I hope that another opportunity arrives so that I can go again!
