I'M BROAD STREET BILLY - hyped up, psyched up, revved up for Red October - and now I need your help.
I want you to get the 2010 playoffs-to-parade mojo going by sending your stories and photos of Fightin' Phils family histories, kids, man/woman caves and beloved pets -
Choochuahuas! Docshunds! Rhodesian Lidgebacks! Rauladoodles! Great Shanes! - to me at:
GOT NICKNAME? B-Street Billy is shocked that we are probably looking at the greatest Phillies team of all time - and they have no nickname!
No "Gas House Gang."
No "Big Red Machine."
What's up with that?
They've got more sizzle than the "Whiz Kids" of 1950, more high cheese than the "Wheeze Kids" of 1983, more swagger than the "Macho Row" rowdies of 1993 - but no nickname!
