1/1/11 – Happy New Year

Last night, my wife and I held our annual New Year’s party. As usual, we were surrounded by our close friends, having the time of our lives. Many times during the night, conversation would turn to the upcoming Phillies Phantasy Camp. As many times as I’ve rambled on and on about the camp, the reality of it really hit me last night. The calendar has finally turned to January. In two and a half weeks, I will be having the absolute time of my life in Florida. After a year of sadness and reflection on my father’s passing, I think it’s very fitting that this new year will be kicked off with Phantasy Camp. I couldn’t think of a better way to turn the page and make 2011 the rebound year to end all rebound years. 

This camp is much more than a silly baseball fan getting his kicks for the love of the sport. This camp is all about a man coming to peace with the loss of his father… his hero. This camp will make me believe anything is possible, that I can do anything, and that I have the rest of my life ahead of me. As the battle cry goes, “there’s always next year”. Well, next year is here.

I couldn’t be anymore excited. I don’t like to hinge my life on one day, but last night really gave me a well-needed positive shot into my system. 

It could have also been the champagne.

I wish everyone the happiest and healthiest of new years!
