Contestant 8 – Frank

Phillies FanI work in New York City. I live in New York City. I was born in New York City. I am a die-hard Fightin’ Phillies fan. Weird huh? It happen in 1976. I was in Philadelphia on a class trip and fell in love with the city, right away. That summer (’76) my Uncle took me to a Mets/Phillies double-header and I watched ‘The Bull’ hit a Grand Slam, and from that moment I was hooked with the Phils.

Now think about the torture I endured as a kid in NYC, wearing Phillies gear. Surrounded by Yankee/Met fans. I was always able to make my team sets (Topps) with the Phillies, cause I would trade away all the Yanks/Mets cards for my Fightin’ Phillies.
Now modern day, I work for the Dept. of Sanitation. I’m the only Phillies fan on the job. 5000+ employees got to abuse me for my first 8 years on the job, but the last 2, I’m able to talk a little bit.

I did predict the Phillies to make Fall Classic, I picked my vacation weeks back in January. My shop steward said I was nuts to give up summer vacation for an October vacation and called my reasons hopeful thinking…now he asks me for lotto numbers.

What makes this a lot sweeter, is that my wife is a die-hard Met fan. Nothing would be greater in winning these tickets and getting out of NYC and away from my wife.
