    My parents are down at Phillies spring training and I called them on their cell phone right as they were leaving the game. They saw Harry Kalas and started talking to him. He asked who was on the phone and my mom said her son who he met back in 1993. He asked to talk and said hey to me and talked for a little while. It was very cool. He's a very good guy, how many other anouncers would take the time to do that. Man, that made my night! I have beena die-hard Phillies fan as long as I have been alive. Damn, I can't wait for baseball season!

    For those of you who don't know, he has been the voice of the Philadelphia Phillies broadcasting as long as I can remember and does some commercials, like the Campbells Chunky Soup commercials. Man, it was very cool!

    I like football to, but I'm a diehard baseball fan. Played in high school and college and thought about going to some major leage tryouts before I had back surgery and got waaaaaay out of shape.

    Never been to Fenway, either. Only stadiums I have been to are Veterans Stadium and Turner Field. And, of course, Jack Russel Stadium in Clearwater!
