I wish I had just taken the following picture. I wish I was approaching Citizen’s Bank Park on a glorious afternoon with blue skies and baseball in the forecast.
Alas, I am about 200 miles from this location and I do not have a ticket to tonight’s game. I’ll watch it on ESPN. I took the picture last year before a mid-season game between the Phillies and Pirates.
I’m not a fan of the MLB season opening on a Sunday night. I think every season should open on Monday afternoon in Cincinnati. That being said, I’m thrilled the Phillies are playing tonight.
It was wonderful to savor the championship during the offseason, but now it’s time to win another one.
