I’ll Be Home For Christmas

December 23, 2010

Ah, Philadelphia. I hadn’t really been to Center City for awhile. It’s easy to forget how beautiful this underrated city can be. It’s come a long way from when I used to work here. With the exception of The Gallery area (maybe someday they will level this awful mall and start again), it’s a great city to walk and discover history, shops, and great restaurants. The mood of this city seems to swing with how well or poorly its sports teams are doing. And without a doubt, the mood here has been very good over the past couple of weeks with Cliff Lee signing with the Phillies and the Eagles’ second Miracle of the Meadowlands. That both these events come at New York’s expense makes everyone all the more giddy.

    Yeah, heard the Phillies had been on a spending spree. So much for the recession!

    (speaking of sports, still want a pic of you and Rocky, btw!)

    You mean a picture of the Liberty Bell wasn't good enough? Don't know if I'm going to get to Rocky this time around. Uh, hello Photoshop!
