How Sweet It Is!

If this is the last time Virginia’s faviorite baseball plauyer ever, Pat Burrell, is part of the Phillies, well, it was quite a way to go out!

The city of Philadelphia celebrated the Phils’ 2nd world championship ever – and first since 1980 – with a huge parade. More than 2 million people apparently attended.

And it all started with Burrell, his wife, and his bulldog, Elvis, riding the Budweiser wagon behind a team of Clysedales.

We were down there – at 22nd and Broad. And you can see our photos here.

Next up: a 2009 repeat.
