Rise and shine, Phillies fans! It’s 5 a.m. Time for a hot dog and beer.
Just because you can't go to the game like I can doesn't mean you need to miss the fun. It's a crisp fall morning and the Beerleaguer B-B-Q is open for business. We’re serving Phillies Franks, of course, featuring the nameless black left-hander on the packaging. We’ve brought a cooler of Reading Premium, proud sponsor of Beerleaguer’s championship season. We've invited a few VIP guests, as you can see. J-Roll's here, and so is Ryno. They arrived together. Aaron and Pat rolled in late from the gym and are beating everyone at horseshoes. Chooch made it even with his bum arm. Chase is here and is asking people to help him take infield practice with the wiffleball set. There are a couple guys who arrived I didn't invite like Jim Ed Warden and Randall Simon, but it's cool.
So finish that Excel spreadsheet or whatever it is you're working on, get yourself to the nearest hi-def set with digital TBS HD upgrades and crack open a cold one like grandpa used to do, 'cause October baseball is back!
Notes: Tune in to 830-AM WEEU where I will be a guest on Mike Faust's Feedback Show at 9 a.m. Today’s game chat fires off at 12:00 noon ET. Let’s go, Phillies!
