A Phillies Keepsake Souvenir

Last Friday night, I had the dubious distinction of going out to Citizens Bank Park to watch the Philadelphia Phillies lose their 9,999 game as a major league baseball franchise. They convincingly lost 8-0 to the World Champion Boston Red Sox. The Phillies showed no signs of life and got only the whimper of three hits in front of a capacity crowd. When the high point of the night is the mango water ice and seventh inning stretch, something is drastically wrong with the chemistry on this Phillies team.
Just one loss you say, albeit the 9,999th? At least, it wasn't the Phillies historic 10,000 loss. Fans didn't have to wait long for that one. The Phillies conquered that hurdle the following night thus becoming the first professional team in history to record 10,000 losses. They remain entrenched as the losingest professional sports team on the planet. Call me a glutton for punishment because I remain a loyal Phillies fan.

Ouch.
Well it could be worse. You could have been the team manager or one of the players. LOL

I understand you were in good company. A full house is almost five thousand fans! For a moment I thought they were going to stage a comeback on the 3rd game of the series, alas no such luck! Hang in there.....

Good things come to those who wait.
