The Four Best Things About Today
ONE: It's going to be bright, clear and sunny with a high of 77 degrees.
TWO: The Phillies won last night, completing a 2-game sweep over the Colorado Rockies, putting them just over .500 for the season so far.
THREE: The Flyers won the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs with a thrilling seventh game overtime goal by Joffrey Lupul to win the game 3-2 and the series 4-3. They may very well fall to the Montreal Canadiens in four straight, but today is still a good day,
FOURTH, and MOST IMPORTANT: Today marks the end of the incessant phones calls from Bill, Michelle, Hillary, Barack and dozens of their friends, as well as the endless commercials, radio ads and traffic snarls from their local campaigning. It was fun to have them here but GAWD I'm glad to see them go.
