Phillie Phanatics

So in honor of the Phillies victory last night we read the following book:

Chatty even asked me to insert Chase Utley's (her favorite Phillies player) name in the book while I was reading it and then proceeded to tell me "I knew it was Chase they were talking about" (don't you know she knows just about everything? Don't all 5 1/2 year olds?). Needless to say the ESPN household was happy last night, now on to the NLCS. Don't ask me how I became such a baseball fan, I literally despised it until Mr. ESPN got me into the Phillies. The things you do for love .. whatever, I think it was the cute guys that did it for me!
BTW - we also have the University of Arizona and Florida State University books - great gift for kids - they have them for most major colleges and for the professional teams too!

I love regional type books like that. We have lots of New Orleans books and then of course, the Cajun Night Before Christmas, complete with alligators pulling Santa's bayou boat. Precious. We live in such a diverse country.....embrace it all!

at least it is safe for your kids to watch sports with you. M gets way too upset.

I've been a ''fan'' of different colleges depending on who I'm dating. That's why it's awesome to go to schools without football teams.
Looks like I'm an MU Tiger forever!
Isn't it funny what men can get you to do? ;)

My kids will have to have both Hokie and LSU Tiger books.
Wonder which one they'll favor? Only time will tell..
