It’s all tricks and treats in Philadelphia today. Not a lot of orange in my hometown this Halloween. Rather, a sea of red…

The treat: upwards of three million Phillies fans have descended on Center City Philadelphia, as The Parade of Champions makes its way down Market and Broad Streets. The last time a Philadelphia team won a major sports championship was in 1983, when the 76ers won the NBA title. The Phillies won their only other World Series in 1980.

The trick: navigating the crowds and getting my short ass home, where I could actually catch some of the parade action on television.

Happy Halloween, y’all!

    Happy Halloween!

    What a GREAT picture.
    So sad I couldn’t be
    there. I of course taped
    it. Even though they
    are replaying it like
    a billion times.

    How about Mr. Chase Utley?

    I almost choked when Chase dropped the f bomb on live tv. 6abc apologized for his “utterance.” I was rolling!
