This past week Phillies Nation celebrated its 4th birthday.Â It was on July 25, 2004 that Eric Milton took a perfect game into the ninth inning, before Doug Glanville misplayed a blooper to center…and Phillies Nation was born.Â Here was that first post:
What a game! Supurb pitching by Eric Milton, and Doug Glanville won’t have anything funny to say about this nailbiter. Phils funnyman nearly cost his team the win, which brings the unofficial total of 5 defensive mistakes in centerfield in the past week.
It was nice to see the Phillies’ young stars, Ryan Madson and Chase Utley, perform well today. Utley had the Phils first two RBIs including a HR. Smoltz just got the save up in New York, that means the Fightins’ are still a half game out.
Those were the days. Thanks to everyone who makes this site so great.
