Joe Blanton is my hero!

OMG, how much do I love that man? "Sure, whatever, I gave up two solo shots...BUT I HIT ONE MYSELF!" Not that there weren't a lot of other guys producing last night (maybe Ryan Howard decided he couldn't let the PITCHER have as many HRs as he had in one night?), but how awesome is that?

Last night I was screaming with elation at the television. It started when they had Harry Kalas announce the starting lineup -- I listened to him call Phillies games while I was growing up, I don't get to hear him in NYC, and I MISS that voice. Too bad he couldn't call the whole game -- he's most famous for his "IT'S OUTTA HERE!" and he would have gotten to say that four times last night. I was also loud when Ryan Howard hit his first bomb, but I bet they heard me in Tampa Bay when Joe Blanton did it. And then Werth and Howard #2 were just gravy.

Here's hoping they can turn it on again tonight. It would be SO AWESOME if they brought it home in Philadelphia! (And I am SO JEALOUS of my friend who has tickets to the game.)

I remember when Harry Kalas was the baby-faced third announcer on the Astros announcing team back in the 60's. Now I feel *really* old.

Harry Kalas once announced a team other than Philadelphia? I refuse to believe it! :)
