A Tummy Twister
September 18, 2007
Last night’s game went from a laugher to a tummy twister. Watching on TV, I went from total relaxation in a Lazy-boy recliner to pacing.
Charlie Manuel put it best after the game: “I passed my stress test.”
Oh, one more note from last night, we out-scored the Eagles!
A reminder, last night is history and the focus is on tonight. It will be interesting to see Cole Hamels’ performance. A healthy Hamels down the stretch would be huge.
The Phillies have averaged a 5.3 rating on Comcast SportsNet this season, 12 percent higher than last year’s average rating, which set a record.
