According to the Press of Atlantic City, Charlie Manuel placed a Phillies cap in his mother’s casket at her funeral Friday:
“If my mom can help me in any way she can, I’m going to call on her to do it.”
Wow. Just. Wow. Talk about sweet. Manuel’s doing anything to keep good luck on the Phils side in the Series. And June Manuel and the 2008 Phils championship run will forever be intertwined.
By the way, just throwing it out there, but do we start talking about Charlie Manuel as greatest manager in Phillies history?
Hat tip (no pun) to The 700 Level.
