One year ago today, I wrote these words to mark the opening of Spring Training:
Now begins the process of trying to love this team more than last year’s National League East Division Champions.
Process over. Like learning to love a newborn, it’s instantaneous. World Series or Bust. Go Phillies!
Pitchers and catchers report today. My sentiment is as true this year as it was last year. Except – and this is something I pheared I’d never be able to say – I must modify last year’s sentiment. 2009: World Series Repeat or Bust. Go Phillies!
