(forgive the non-hockey post my puckhead bretheren)
Been a long time....since 1980. I wasn't sure I was going to see one anytime soon. I was 12 when they last won it and will never forget Tug McGraw slapping the mitt on his leg as the city went into pandemonium.
Fast forward to Brad Lidge as he strikes out Hinske to end the game and drop to his knees in utter disbelief. Wow. I am speechless. What an amazing feeling. I can now understand how Wings fans feel. What's more, I want this for my hockey team. Now the bar has been raised in Philadelphia and it is up to the other teams to step up and keep this vibe rolling. As fine as this is and as much as I love baseball, I want this a hundred times more for my Flyers.
Just heard the Harry Callas call - just magical. I have goosebumps. There is going to be one hell of a parade here in this town. I will surely be there.
Man, do I want to feel this for my hockey team. I am sure Mr. Snider is smiling now that he knows the mantle has been passed to him and it is his burden now.
Hey you! Don't help them to bury the light...
The light shines brightly in South Philadelphia tonight. Keep on shining...
