Scoreboard Watching

It is that time of year again when the Phillies are back in first place, and I go back to scoreboard watching. It is a really fun activity. What happens is when you see that the Phillies are winning; if they're playing at home you look over to the right-field corner and see where the little ATL is. From there, you have to discover whether the Braves are winning. Right now, it really is that big a deal with the Phillies just ahead of the Braves. However, I'm not the only one who does this. Even the Phillies television station last night kept turning to look at the out-of-town scoreboard at Citi Field since the Phillies were playing the Mets have commenting on whether or not the Braves had a chance at beating St. Louis. Last week when the Phillies were at home, you could actually hear the fans react when the Atlanta score changed. It isn't enough just to win right now; everything is dependent on what happens with their opponents. All this being said, I hope that the Phillies won't need to worry about that because I hope that we'll keep winning and make it impossible for the Braves again on us.
