Not super important, and she was very good, but why choose a singer from Georgia? Is there some connection to Philly I can't see?
I had to look her up as I didn't know her and was very surprised she wasn't a "local" person...Where is Taylor Swift, lol.
Time to get up for this game, got to win this one right here
First pitch was Doctor J, Mike Schmidt, Bernie Parent and Brandon Graham throwing to Cole Hamels, Jimmy Rollins, Shane Victorino and Jayson Werth, not sure who threw to who, but thats pretty cool.
The offense has got to show up.
