ShutterButton: Phillies Parade, Many Skip Work and Begin Drinking at 8am


It is a great week to be a Penn student. It's only Saturday afternoon, and my week so far (which has been very similar to many others) has already seen two back-to-back all-nighters for two back-to-back midterms, the Phillies championship, a riot, a Bloomers show, Halloween, and Homecoming. I haven't had a full night's sleep since Monday night and my body (liver) hates me, yet there is nowhere else I would rather be right now.

The icing on the cake of the week occurred Friday morning/afternoon, when a massive sea of red congregated in the streets of Philadelphia to celebrate a major sports championship for the first time since 1983.
