July 2011

The Phillies are also playing…

They finally arrived.

I feel like Ryan Howard every time the Phillies play in St. Louis. I had a lot of requests for these tickets to the Phantasy Camp reunion on August 27th. It’s going to be an incredible night!

I know all 45,000+ in attendance will be there just to see us Campers, but just in case you need a second reason…

No June Swoon

I’m proud to say I’ve made a return to the MLB Blogs leaders, landing at #49 for the month of June.

Thank you all for your continued readership!

There will be a lot of new pictures and video in late August after the 2011 Phantasy Camp reunion at Citizens Bank Park. And of course, another return to Clearwater in January 2012…

So don’t go turn that dial!

Phillies Talk podcast interview

Waiting is the hardest part.

Just like last year at this time, thoughts of the 2012 Phantasy Camp this coming January are constantly hitting me. I feel like Chris Volstad facing Ryan Howard. The reality of the situation is running me over like a freight train… a freight train full of sunshine in the middle of winter, endless buckets of sunflower seeds and Double Bubble, and some of the best damn memories any baseball fan can remember.

Luckily, my 2011 Camp experience is technically not over. Come August, I will have one more huge fantasy come true right before the Phillies take on the Marlins at Citizens Bank Park. But I’ll save that until later…

Until then, it’s watching the Phillies lead the pack in the Majors, guiding my softball team (hopefully) to another championship game appearance, and hitting the gym on a regular basis. Yes, hell has indeed frozen over.  More trips to the batting cages are definitely on the docket as well. I am NOT embarrassing myself in front of Milt Thompson again.

As it is that time of year when folks are filling out their applications or still trying to decide if that trip to Clearwater is worth it, I thought I would revisit an interview I gave for the Phillies Talk podcast back in February.
