OK, I admit it. I watched the highlights a few times last night. It was on SportsCenter. It was fun to see. I got about 60-70 text messages, and I’m still getting calls. My dad was there, making it an even bigger moment, personally. He made the long trip from Hawaii, and arrived in Philadelphia. To have him there was definitely nice, and to see him when I touched home plate was really special. For some reason, I do well when he’s in town. We should have him around more often. Him and Elvis, Pat Burrell’s dog.
I also talked to my mom yesterday, and she said, “Congratulations, savor the moment, but forget about all of that when the next game starts.” I’ll remember that, tomorrow. I have to turn the page. Saturday is a new day.
Today was good. I had a nice workout, and all I want to do is go back to the room and sleep. It’s nice to have a day off. We’re excited about tomorrow. It’s a different tone than last year. Now, we have to win Saturday, then win the next two series.
