Growth chartI am a Sister of the Holy Family of Nazareth, and I work at Holy Family University.

I believe I qualify as a great Phillies fan, because from 2000 to 2007, I lived in Texas, and I guarantee that I was the only Phillies fan in that great state! I could not listen to the games, of course, but I subscribed to MLB.com and I watched every single game that was not blacked out for me (Houston games). The Sisters all knew when I was having my “holy hour.”

My office here at the University is decorated with Phillies photos, bobble heads, and everything else that my co-workers, who know how much I love the Phillies, have brought in for me. I have my red shirt ready to wear during the World Series games, and my rally towel to wave. I have to add that I really do storm heaven for them during their games!

    That is completly AWESOME!!! Now I know how the Phils finally pulled it off. The greatest thing about that post is how the sister said that watching the Phillies are considered her “holy” hour. That I have to say is the best fan friday post yet!!! And Tim, doesn’t it make you feel great to know that a nun is looking at your site? Makes me feel bad about the fan friday video of my friend and I that everyone thought was vulgar and dumb.

    Is it an unfair advantage if the Phils have an insider who can influence God?

    What a cool nun, I’d love to take her to a Phils game.

    I think it is much better advantage to have a nun on our side than if our whole team was juicing…. and this is completly legal. No 50 game suspensions for a nun root root rooting for the home team!

    That is awesome, although I didn’t think about nuns reading our posts, so I’m going to watch my language from now on!

    The Sister does not walk alone in Texas. We have a nice little rambunctious group of Phillies/Eagles fans down here in Austin to back her up.

    Hopefully this stops the Mets fans from cursing so much on our posts.

    What Sister Janice said is gospel truth. I lived with her in Texas and while I rooted for my Rangers, Sister always stuck by her Phillies…and she DID keep her “holy hour” with them. She’s a great person to have on your side.

    Hey Sister Janice,
    This proves that you are the Number # 1 Phillies fan (Phan). Since you returned to Philadelphia last year, the Phillies won the World Series. We should have brought you home years ago.

    I look forward to sharing the 2009 Phillies games and commentaries again this year. You are the best. Rock on.!!!!!!!!!!!! Go Phillies.!!!!!!! Go Sister Janice and all the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth. Bring us another winner this year.
