Kotite's Corner spend the day Saturday down in South Philly for a huge day in Philadelphia sports. Here is a recap of how the day went--
2:00 p.m. - Arrived at the stadium complex, parked in the Lincoln Financial Field parking lot with a case of Yuengling.
3:00 p.m. - Hanging out at the Phillies block party, and tailgating, even though we don't have tickets for the game.
3:30 p.m. - It starts to rain hard, so we go into the Wachovia Center, since we do have tickets for the Flyers game.
7:00 p.m. - Flyers win in overtime on a goal by Jeff Carter. Great game, Flyers get their 2nd straight win, lots of fights, and an overtime win. Can't ask for more than that leading up to the Phillies game.
7:30 p.m. - Back outside in the parking lot, everyone is going crazy in the rain getting ready for the game.
8:00 p.m. - Inside the Wachovia Center again at the AT&T Pavilion.
8:30 p.m. - I see Ed Stefanski, president and GM of the Philadelphia 76ers, and get some exclusive one-on-one time with him. Stefanski informs Kotite's Corner that he is excited for the start of the Sixers season, and hopes that everyone comes out to the games this year. Stefanski is the man.
9:30 p.m. - Phillies game still hasn't started. We head over to McFadden's in the rain, and the line is out the door halfway down the long sidewalk. It's already packed inside also, and I doubt anyone is leaving anytime soon.
10:00 p.m. - Phillies game finally starts, we are with a good crowd back in the Wachovia Center.
1:47 a.m. - Phillies win!!! Everyone is going crazy!!!!!!
Flyers win, Phillies win, and we spoke with Ed Stefanski. Can't ask for a better Saturday in South Philly.
