Three Down

I live in Philadelphia, where I enjoyed Games 1 & 2 of the World Series. Dan & I spent a lovely weekend in southwestern Florida, where we energetically watched Games 3 & 4. This morning, Dan flew home, but I am still in FL for a work meeting until Wednesday. So I'll watch Game 5 here.

Clearly I am very much hopeful and excited for tonight's game to be the last, even though I'm still in the reverse state from where my beloved Phils are playing. If (if if if highly-unlikely if) they must return to Tampa to shut out the Rays there, I will be back in Philly. Cruel. I'm totally bitter that I haven't been able to be in Philly for ANY of the games to experience the excitement there. At least I can have Dan report back tonight.

And can we please just talk about the amazingness of the last two games?? What??? Moyer, Rollins, Howard, Werth, Bartlett, Blanton...holy heck. Game 3 = nail-bitingly incredible. Game 4 = YEE-AH!! Special shout-out to my wonderful and patient husband for explaining the ins-and-outs of baseball to his I-grew-up-watching-Pete-Sampras-and-Steffi-Graf wife.

Pointing to left field (or right, or center...) for tonight.

Can you BELIEVE we were delayed?!?

Augh. I bet the game won't continue until Wednesday or Thursday now. Ay Caramba!

The suspense is just too much.
