Postseason Phillies Game

Geof was able to get us tickets to the Phillies postseason game today against the Colorado Rockies. We took the day off and headed to the game for the 2:30pm start time. The vibe at the stadium was completely different than going to a regular season game. It was a sea of red and the cheers were louder than I’ve ever heard before. The Phillies were down most of the game, but started to make a comeback in the 6th. They ended up losing 5-4. It was a tough loss, but there are still 3 games to go in the series.

Our seats were on the 200 level and we had a great view of everything. One of the suites began where our row ended and there were some Phillies alumni in the suite. John Kruk was sitting right behind us. It was awesome to see some of the old players from when I was a teenager.

The series is currently tied up at 1-1. I’m so excited to watch the next few games and see how everything plays out. A repeat trip to the World Series would be ideal!


Ready to head into the game

Look at those people on top! We couldn't figure out what they were doing up there.

stinks they lost, i grew up with cliff lee and his wife. i played co-ed softball with him, his brother, and sister before he made the big time. his dad was our softball coach in high school. funny to see him on tv and when they come home, teach his boy at church. really makes you realize that famous folks are just regular people.

What a fun way to spend a day off! I confess, I know next to nothing about baseball, but I love going to games. I think it's because I get to sit outside and eat delicious food. Our minor league team's stadium has all of the normal baseball food, but if you sit in the more expensive section, you also have access to some "gourmet" food, including pastas and barbecue nachos from the best bbq place in the city.

I cannot believe those people were up that high. I don't think I would've even been able to watch the game because I would be too nervous that they were going to fall!
