A few notes:
Congrats to the Phillies!
The game should never have been started in the first place. They should have at least called it before it was an official game and started over.
Patti LaBelle destroyed the National Anthem. Just awful. I am a little ashamed that the Phillies’ fans didn’t boo. That’s what they do.
Tampa fans – maybe next year you’ll actually go to the ballpark.
Philly fans – no more batteries, booing Santa, etc. for at least a year.
