Remember When The Phillies Won The World Series?


It was, like, the best month ever at Penn: Homecoming and Halloween + the Phillies and Obama winning. Sure, the economy sucked then too, but we had HOPE. Not to mention that May and the stress that the job/internship hunt provokes seemed far from imminent. (Five weeks! Five weeks!)  

Though we didn't snag the Prez as our commencement speaker this year, a little bit of that epic month is coming to campus tomorrow (Wednesday): the Phillies World Series Trophy will be in Houston Hall, beginning at 3 PM!

Get there early, because word is that SPEC will have baseball nosh like hot dogs, pretzels and popcorn to celebrate the trophy's visit.
