Game 5 : 2008 World Series
Score: Tied 2-2, Bottom 6th
Phillies lead 3-1

Tampa Bay Rays at Philadelphia Phillies
Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia

If the Phillies score at least one more run than the Rays from here out, they are world champions. … Ryan Madson has been announced as the seventh-inning reliever for the Phillies. … The Phillies begin with a pinch hitter, then Jimmy Rollins and Jayson Werth.

Go Phillies!

    I like the decision to go with Madson. I think we’re only going to see Madson, Romero and Lidge tonight.

    like I said on Monday….it kinda feels like New Years Eve for you guys….the anticipation,the celebration,and of course a few brandy’s to keep warm.If you win tonight,there will be lots of full bars and parties,and much like New Years Eve….make it a safe one,DON’T Drink and Drive!

    Don’t be shocked if Hamels goes to the Batters Box and take a pitch….so he will get a rousing standing O

    Well said, Mister Miner. I will suspend my usual distrust for Met’s fans on this the Eve of something wonderful.

    I tended to be a happy drunk when I was still drinking.

    Now, finally, it is time to end this thing. We have waited long enough. Hopefully the fans at the bank were listening to Mitch when he said to make that stadium shake. I hope the rays hear every Philly fan yelling in support of the Phils from everywhere in the nation. IT ENDS TONIGHT!!!

    LETS GO PHILLIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    BTW, my personal music selection before the game: Metallica’s For Whom the Bell Tolls!!!

    1 + 9 = 2

    Philly math!! 1 run for us, 9 outs for them = 2nd world championship.

    I agree with Josh and Mr. Miners second comment. It will pump up the crowd.

    Let’s go Phillies!!!!!!!!!

    Anyone watching the first 5.5 innings of the game on MLB.com? Man, we left SO many guys on base!

    Remember that scene in every Disney sports movie where the guys down but the kid stands up with an inspitational (yet totally contrived and infantile) statement… Well some little kid better stand up and make his speech because the Phils are about to close the book on this story…

    Go the Fightin’ Phils!

    Should I also type the word “clap” repeatedly and try to fit in with the other phillies phans?

    Every little scrap of “news” lately has been sycophantic ramblings about how we fans have been cheated and very little has been written about the other WS team.

    I’m just saying…its not a guaranteed win tonight.

    I want my Phils to take it all. I also want Jennifer Lopez to return my calls.

    I’ll take a WS victory. Those are much more rare than a J-Lo bootie.

    I am so nervous… the last time I felt like this the Eagles lost to the Panthers. So worried the curse is here.

    I’d like to point out that Sen. Obama’s infomercial is basically taking up all of the pre-game time slot.

    Basically, Obama is saving us from more Joe Buck. I’ll take less Joe Buck however I can get it.

  • Posts: 0 Rob Cowie

    Me n my boys will be doing cherry bombs for every run by the phils. I’d implore you to do the same.
