On behalf of the entire Phillies Nation team – Brian, Rob, Nick, Amanda, Corey, Paul, Kieran, Mike, Jay, and Jeff – I’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a joyous holiday season. We certainly hope Santa stops at your house this Christmas and brings you an abundance of Phillies related gifts.
I’d also like to say thank you for putting up with our changes over the past few weeks. We will be working hard to address all the issues that have come up with the launching of the new website. During the “slow” time of year, we felt it would be best to present the new site so as not to interfere with the season. We feel strongly all problems will be resolved soon.
And really, we couldn’t do it without all of you. The best fans in the world make this the best source for Phillies news in the world. It’s that simple.
So, thank you all for continuing to grace the pages of PhilliesNation.com and Merry Christmas to all to all a good night!
‘Twas the night before Cliffmas and all through the Park
Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt, and Cole Hamels embark
On a new training session to start off the day
Attempting to erase the memory of the black, orange, and gray
The rest of the Phillies asleep in their beds
With visions of Championships playing in their heads
The Phanatic on his 4 Wheeler and Charlie in his Cap
Looks up & down his lineup- batting 5th there’s a gap
When all of the sudden, arose such a chatter ESPN stopped by to see what’s the matter
Away from the Rangers he flew like a flash and Flipped off the Yankees and told them where to stick their cash
When what to our wondering eyes should appear?
The familiar face of a man who was just here!
With a nasty curve ball and a fastball that’s quick
An addition to a rotation that’s already sick!
The most powerful group that’s ever been seen
The big 3 is now 4 cause Cliff’s back on the team!
Now Halladay, Hamels, Oswalt, and Lee
Victorino, Howard, Rollins, and Utley!
From the NLCS to the World Series we’ll go
100 win season? Ask Jimmy, he’ll know.
Cliff came to our team cuz he said it felt right Merry Cliffmas to all and to all a good night!
