We're back!

We had a great week in Pennsylvania. In fact, we did so much that I'll be breaking the trip down into three posts. One will be on our adventures in Philadelphia, the second on Pennsylvania Dutch Country and Hershey and part three will be on our visit to Citizens Bank Park, where we saw a bit of history made by one of baseball's greatest pitchers.

I was glad to see that fortunes improved for the Sox while I was away. As hoped, the Sox have taken five out of six from the D-Rays and White Sox, while the Yankees have been having a tougher time against better teams like the Angels and Tigers. The lead is back up to 6 and 1/2 after the Yankees win in Detroit tonight.

Unfortunately, the Brewers aren't faring quite so well. They have fallen 1.5 games behind the Cubs. If the Brewers don't get it together, they are going to deny a lot of Milwaukee fans the opportunity to pee in their pants. This does give us an opportunity for the lost 2003 World Series matchup between the Sox and Cubbies, but it seems a lot less apocalyptic since the Sox won in 2004.

One last thing before I leave you for this entry. There was one historical site that we saw in Philly that rose above all others. I think this picture will speak for itself.

The birthplace of a Stooge. Truly, it brought a lump to my throat.
