I’m Dreaming of A World Series

18 Dec

I attended a holiday party last night full of good friends, good cheer, good wine, good food and lots of good Christmas music.  Yes, I said Christmas music.  No one loves a good old-fashioned Christmas carol more than this little Jewish girl.  Except maybe Phillies manager Charlie Manuel who said last week on Daily News Live that his favorite song of the season is White Christmas.  So with apologies to Irving  Berlin and the voice of Bing Crosby echoing in my head, here we go.

World Series

I’m dreaming of a World Series

Just like the one in two-oh-eight

A parade in the city

Would be so pretty

A time for fans to celebrate.

I’m dreaming of a World Series

For Chooch and Chase and Halladay,

They still have the hunger

They’re not getting any younger

This is our year to take it all the way.

♦          ♦          ♦

I’m dreaming of a World Series

With every potato latke I eat.

May Jimmy say, “We’re the team to beat.”

And may all your holidays be sweet.

♦          ♦          ♦

Now, you’ll be humming that all day.  Sorry.

And don’t forget as you do your last-minute holiday shopping that The Cure: Learn to Love the Phillies Again  (as high as number 4 on Amazon’s Baseball Essays best-sellers list) makes a great gift for your favorite Phillies fan, or even better, it’s the perfect pollyanna for that annoying Yankees fan at the office.

You can go directly to Amazon by clicking on the link conveniently provided in my Blogroll (just look to the right!) or go to Amazon yourself and just type in The Cure: Phillies and it will come right up.

Happy, Merry!

      They haven’t released the exact date that pitchers and catchers report yet but their first “unofficial” Spring Training Game is on February 29th, their annual kick-off against the Florida State University Seminoles.

    Susan,

    We are dreaming of a world series…….sorry, was humming the darn song, thanks for that !!!

    It’s almost time to start dreaming of spring training, as it gets closer each day, but who is counting ( I am…I am!!!!!).

    I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday season.

    If you haven’t got Susan’s book yet, get to Amazon and get it, a wonderful book for both a baseball or Phillies fan!

    Good timing too Susan, it soothed my need for a blog post 🙂
