Do you think any Braves licked the Liberty Bell after our series win in Philly?

I will always hear "Philly" in Marshall Ericksen voice. Always. (If you don't watch How I Met Your Mother, you can give this episode a try to hear Marshall/Jason Segal sing about Philly.) Also, please looks at these great photos from the series win! (some sent by a friend, most are news service photos)

My girl Gena was at the game and snapped this - "Jason stole the Phanatics 4 wheeler", she texted me. HAHA

She also texted me a pic of some of my faves on Socks Up day. :)

How perfect does this uniform look on Ben Sheets. He looks like an old-timey baseball player, and I say that in the best way possible.

This was hilarious in real time. Bourn totally bashed JRoll in the bum with his, uh, front side. Bourn cracked up and JRoll was not amused.

The Braves are 3-1 when Mike chooses navy and 2-5 when he chooses grey. Just saying. Also just saying: everyone looks better in the navy. :)

Finally, I have a new favorite Philly. This is John Mayberry's intro song, and it cracks me up so much (as my Twitter followers already know)...
