I have been having fun putting together quick little musical slide shows chronicling the Phillies post season run. To get juiced for tonight's game one of the World Series with the universally hated (and admittedly loved) New York Yankees I threw together this little teaser video if you will.
The Phillies and Yankees have played in the World Series before, with the Joe DiMaggio lead Yankees sweeping Robin Roberts and the Whiz Kids in four games back in 1950. What better way to celebrate that era than with some Glenn Miller. Naturally as the Phillies are shown celebrating their two franchise world championships, the Yankees invade the party to boast about their 26 rings and their quest for a 27th. As you probably know, the Yankees have been dubbed "The Evil Empire" (I believe by the Boston Red Sox organization and fans), which serves as the influence for the second song selection in the video.
I'm excited for this one, probably more so than last year's World Series against the Tampa Bay Rays.
