Greetings from Clearwater Florida!
My brother and I are here for Phillies Spring Training. I flew in from Dallas, and my brother flew in from Philly, and we met in the Tampa airport. However, due to various issues at the airport, we arrived a tad late for the game. We got there in the top of the 7th. We contemplated not even going, but we were already there. It was really nice – very sunny. As we got there, the Phillies had pulled out all their main players and had started putting in all the guys you’ll never hear from again. However, one of the pitchers they put in was our old friend, Antonio Alfonseca. We actually ended up leaving after the 8th inning, as we had parked in a place we probably shouldn’t have (media parking). So we left to retrieve our car, and ended up spending an inning and a half at the game, which is usually major affront. However, since we’re going to a game every day we’re here, I didn’t get bent out of shape about it.
Here’s a picture of what the stadium looked like, and our old buddy Alfonseca.
My brother and I leave in a few minutes to see the game up in Sarasota in the Reds park that the Phillies are playing today.
