Charlie's call was awesome. He slipped in a 'Good Night' as well.
They just now re-played it on the post-match show - just about the most intense HR call I've heard from him.
'Early storm of hits not enough in DC' goes the lead story on the Phillies site; their match story: http://philadelphia.phillies.mlb.com/mlb/gameday/index.jsp?gid=2011_08_19_phimlb_wasmlb_1&mode=recap&c_id=phi
Unfortunately I wasn't there to see it - I did go tonight but as the rain delay dragged on (I have to admit I have little tolerance for endless standing round through long delays, even at Fridays) I had to remain observant of the start of Metro track work that evening (including single-tracking on the Blue line across Pentagon station and Yellow line service cut back to every 20min); went home about 20.00 and caught the re-started match on the radio.
Even by the standards of Phillies visits here this was a huge Phillies turn-out - easily at least 60% of the crowd as of first pitch. Rain probably did a few of them good - it might have been the ifrst time some of them have showered in three or four weeks.
Pilsner Urquell cans back on offer on the Scoreboard Walk...downrright tasty, just like the finish of the match itself.
I'd ditch the Mystics tonight (Saturday of course) in favour of the Nats if it weren't for this $#%!!&@@!! Metro track work...but with another near-sell-out crowd due I really don't feel like taking upwards of 2hr getting home. I'll be there Sunday though.
