Let's go Phils!

Posted on: November 3, 2008

I’ve practiced real estate for 35 years. Obtained my license in 1973. I was born in 1951 and my first cheers for the Phillies took place when listening on the radio or on occasional visits to Connie Mack stadium at 22nd and Lehigh. I survived the 1964 crash by the team with Jim Bunning and Chris Short. In 1980, I attended the winning sixth game with Tug McGraw leaping triumphantly off the the pitcher’s mound. For 28 years, I’ve carried that clinching sixth game ticket in my wallet. It’s been my good luck charm through three children and 32 years of marriage. Real estate has been pretty good to me too. But this run by the 2008 Phillies was probably the best stretch of sports watching I’ve experienced in my lifetime. Dramatic plays and thrilling victories. So much fun. Even the real estate market seems to be picking up. Let’s win it again next year!
