Phillies Repeat as NL East Champions
Remembering Yesterday's Game via Text MessagesPhillies going to the playoffs.
Last year I watched the Phils clinch their first playoff berth in 14 years along side my father-in-law, Jim. He and I watched the game and the post game celebrations in my living room. This year Jim was unable to watch the game so I kept him up-to-date via text messaging.
