2011 Citi Field Tailgate
In what will most likely become a yearly tradition, and one that hopefully next year we will attach the site name to, this past Saturday we crammed 40 Phils fans into a Yellow School bus, provided them copious amounts of booze, and headed up to Citi Field for what weeks ago seemed like it was going to be a meaningless game somewhere around victory number 105. But after a week of losses and rain out on Friday, suddenly Saturday's game had a little more urgency than expected. In the end, the Phillies faltered once again with Cole Hamels going 7 strong but the bullpen letting him down. But the trip was not without a number of highlights.
The game action was a little lousy, but the weather held off, the food was delicious, and aside from getting lost on the ride home and taking a detour through most of Manhattan, the trip was a major success. Special thanks to all the friends and family that helped out. Next year we're aiming for Baltimore and Pittsburgh!
