It’s a happy week in the Zephyr household. That scream you heard on Sunday afternoon came from me, a joyful response to the Phillies’ victory. Today they play their first postseason game since my freshman year in college. I admit to some anxiety about playing the Rockies, and also to not liking the Phillies chances to win the whole shebang, but what do I know? I thought they were out of it in July, August, and most days in September, too. Yet here the Phillies are, playing October baseball. (For what its worth, however, none of the Philadelphia sportswriters think the Phillies will win the World Series.)
And many thanks to the folks at my internship congregation, St John’s by the Gas Station, for allowing me to travel to Philadelphia tomorrow to see my first ever Phillies postseason game. Game 2 of the NLDS, Phillies vs. Rockies, 3:07pm. I’ll be there.
Let’s go Phils!
