Road Trip '09: Day Two 

Day Two was filled lots of driving and waiting. We left our hotel in Baltimore pretty early. It's a short drive from Baltimore to Philly. So we got to the stadium about 6 hours too early. We decided to drive around South Philly for a while. We only had time to kill, so we drove around and looked for the famous steak houses. We saw them and continued to drive. Parking in Philly is brutal. There were cars literally parked in the middle of the street like it was no big deal. I had no idea you could park in a turn lane.

Anywho, we stopped by a local pub and grabbed a quick bite. Then we decided to head back to the stadium. We still had about an hour and a half to kill before we could even be let into the park. So we just kicked in the car for a while. Finally we went into the team store to look around. And I had one of the best conversations ever.

Me: Do you have any Pete Rose jerseys?

Lady at Store: Oh yes, he was...

Me: Where are they?

Lady at Store: Oh no, we don't have any of those.

Me: *walks away in utter disbelief of conversation*

If that didn't make you laugh I guess you needed to be there, because we all thought it was funny. I again tried to get a Pete Rose jersey at another store that was making custom jerseys. Again I asked if they could make a Pete Rose jersey. I was told they couldn't do it and I had to check "online". Needless to say I am disapointed I couldn't get a Pete Rose Phillies jersey, which would have been pretty cool.

As far as the game goes...well it rained, a lot. Jamie Moyer did not look good at all. Scott Richmond for Toronto had a career game. He had something like 11 strikeouts. Toronto pretty controlled the whole game. It did get interesting in the 9th as Philly loaded up the bases. But eventually Toronto prevailed.

Afer the game we loaded back up into the car and drove to New Jersey. We finally got in about midnight and just crashed. Now we are still at the hotel waiting to leave for the Nationals/Yankees game.

I'll try to get back on here later tonight for a final update of Road Trip '09. Thanks for reading.
