The Voice of the Phillies

Harry Kalas died today at age 73.  He was the sportscaster for the Philadelphia Phillies for an amazing 38 years, through 3 stadiums, and 4 World Series Championships (The Phillies won 2 of those in '80 and '08).  He was so incredibly loved by Philadelphia and Phillies Phans everywhere.  He will always be known for his legendary phrases "OUTTA HERE!" and "Watch this, baby!"

I snapped this photo at the parade after the Phillies won the World Series last November.  He was so proud of his Phillies.  Rest in Peace Harry the K!  The Philadelphia Phillies will NEVER be the same!

I miss you. I've been becoming highly nostalgic lately as all of our college careers are (this year and next) coming to a close. I'm so proud of you, I miss you, and I love you.

That's all I've got for right now.
