Phillies Game!

Yesterday, I got to go to Philadelphia with my parents and Colby for a Phillies game! My Mom and Colby are big Phillies fans and were very excited for the game.  Dad and I enjoyed ourselves even though I looked up Yankees tickets to buy for us in August :)

We ate lunch at McFadden’s, a restaurant that connects to the stadium. Since I was in Philly I had to have…

Philly (Chicken) Cheesesteak. It was seriously good and came with waffle fries.

Colby got a free hat today! Free hats for guys for the Father’s Day game.

The bell that got to light up and ring at the end of the game when they won!

Happy at the game :)  My hair looks seriously blonde!

Confession…

I’m really freaked out by mascots and people in animal/character costumes.  This fear all started with one guy when I was like 1 year old…

The Philly Phanatic

Yes, he is cute but he scares me. He made me cry hysterically when I was little because he came up to me and stuck his big green nose in my face.  I tell my Mom that he scarred me for life.

Found a few old pictures…

First Phillies game with my Grandma and Mom :)

I found it!! My first encounter with the Philly Phanatic that scarred me for life! Look at the fear on my 1 year old face.  Perhaps this is why I can’t help myself from loving the Yankees?

  1. I second the comment about your perfect hair!! Doggone it!! But I love the old 1980s pic = phantastic!! And I have an issue with mascots too. I’m not necessarily afraid of them, but I wish to kick them in the shins and run. That’s odd, right? Hahahaha… :-)

  2. I love this post! I love, love, love McFaddens at the ballpark and you usually have to drag me outta there to go to our seats! I will admit that the Phanatic can be a little creepy and scary (for adults and kids). Years ago, when I was training with Team in Training the Phanatic made an appearance at one of our events. He reeked – seriously the last time that costume was cleaned must have been the 80s – and was just strange (trying to hug everyone in sight)!
