2008 World Series Game 1, st. petersburg
Last night Mandi and I went to see Game 1 of the World Series in person as the Rays continued on in this magical summer of baseball. It was such an awesome experience especially given the fact that I have always been such a huge baseball fan my entire life. The funny coincidence is that the last time that I rooted my favorite team on to a World Series victory was back in 1993 when the Toronto Blue Jays took on the Philadelphia Phillies. Since we have been living in Tampa for the last 11 years our passion for baseball turned to the Rays about 5 years ago and here they are in their first ever World Series against those same ol' stinkin' Phillies.
And while the result wasn't a good one the night was incredible. We know that the Rays will come back as they have all year long.
