Kelly and I went to a preseason exhibition but the family went to our first regular season Phillies game of the year on Tuesday. (Here are Da Boys and I in Ashburn Alley during batting practice before the game.)
Good game. Phillies-Cardinals. Hamels-Wainwright. Scoreless till the 8th inning, Tied through 9. Carlos Ruiz homer in the 10th for the win. Best of all, Virginia came all the way from a training in Harrisburg to catch the game with us. Afterward, we took her to 30th Street Station and stuck her on a train back. She’ll be back tomorrow (Friday) and I will be happy to no longer be a single parent. A little of this goes a long, long way.
