These are the days of wine and roses. It's August now, and whenever we get to this month I can't stop myself from thinking about how the baseball season is waning. It makes me enjoy every game all the more. Whether the Phillies are winning or losing, I try to wring every possible ounce of pleasure out of each game I watch. Thankfully, the Phillies have won a few games recently so it's not as hard as it could be. Or has been. Or will be.
|PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES||WASHINGTON NATIONALS|
