Just got in from work.
A buzz is in the air in this town.
I was talking with a friend about baseball tonight &
it was said that it's more than a sport. More than
simply enjoying the sport. Instead, it goes beyond and
becomes about community.
There is something about an event that causes people
who normally wouldn't associate with one another high five.
There is something to be said when I'm in the quiet of my home
and I am compelled to run to the door to hear the honking and the screaming
until the wee hours of the night because, it makes me feel like
I'm sharing some happiness with fellow Philadelphians.
In any town, the community it creates is what america is about and that's
why baseball is such a great symbol of our country.
We needed this win & we deserved it. Our team has existed since
1893 while the Rays have been around since 1998. This is only our
second time with the championship title. I barely remember the first but, I
remember all the stars on that team, they were heroes when I was a kid.
Schmidt, McGraw, Rose, Maddox. Who could forget them?
Now our 6 years olds have their heroes in the 2008 team.
My 93 years old Grandfather couldn't stop laughing he was so happy.
And that alone is worth it to me.
But, I am happy for my town, my fellow Philadelphians, My peeps in Jersey and of course, my team.
Now, about another huge remarkable feat of victory...
We need a victory in the White House because we deserve that too.
So speaking of something that also embodies what this country is about,
let's get out and vote on Tuesday. Don't forget, go early, plan ahead
what ever it takes. Just get there. Let's make a difference!
