"That ball is outta here!!"

This is to the Philadelphia Fan To Laud your passion as best I can
Your loyalty is unsurpassed Be the Fightins in first or last
We come to the park each day Looking forward to another fray
Because we know you'll be there We know you really care
You give the opposing pitcher fits Because as one loyalist shouts, "Everybody hits"
To be sure in Philly, there might be some boos Because you passionate fans, like the manager, hate to lose
Your reaction to the action on the field that you impart Spurs us as broadcasters to call the game with enthusiasm and heart
We feel your passion through and through
Philadelphia fans, I love you.

“Swing and a long drive, there it is, number 500! The career 500th home run for Michael Jack Schmidt!”

"65,000 plus on their feet here at Veterans Stadium. The Tugger needs one more...Swing and a miss! Yes, he struck him out! Yes, they did it! The Phillies are world champions! World champions of baseball! It's pandemonium at Veterans Stadium! All of the fans are on their feet. This city has come together behind a baseball team!...Phillies are world champions! This city knows it! This city loves it!"

"One strike away; nothing-and-two, the count to Hinske. Fans on the their feet; rally towels are being waved. Brad Lidge stretches. The 0-2 pitch — swing and a miss, struck him out! The Philadelphia Phillies are 2008 World Champions of baseball! Brad Lidge does it again, and stays perfect for the 2008 season! 48-for-48 in save opportunities, and watch the city celebrate! Don't let the 48-hour wait diminish the euphoria of this moment, and the celebration. And it has been 28 years since the Phillies have enjoyed a World Championship; 25 years in this city with a team that has enjoyed a World Championship, and the fans are ready to celebrate. What a night!"

Phillies Phorever!!
