Wait Till Next Year

27 Sep

As the season finally enters its last weekend, at least for my team, I thought it only fair to give a tip of the cap to those teams whose seasons are far from over, those lucky enough to be playing Post Season baseball.

So while there will be no Red October for the Phillies, congrats to all the fans whose teams are still in the hunt especially the Braves, the Dodgers and the Red Sox.  I know there are fans of those three teams who have been long-time, loyal Girls Best Phriend readers so I thank you for your support and hope that you are well stocked with chardonnay, ice cream or TUMS, whichever is your stress reliever of choice as you root on your teams through the Play-Offs.

As for me, just as the Phillies will wind up their run, so must I write my last Girls Best Phriend post.

And it only seems appropriate to end this one the way it started,

with the phrase baseball fans have uttered since baseball became America’s national pastime,

with the vow that all teams save one must ultimately make at season’s end,

with those four simple but powerful words that even after the bleakest of seasons still give baseball fan’s reason for hope:

 “Wait till next year!”

Thanks so much for reading and I hope you never stop rooting.

    A season of sub par pitching and worse hitting persevered this team while I was still able to chuckle every morning after the game with a cup of coffee and my Girls Best Phriend. Thanks!
