This Parade Is A Little Different
I first saw this photo at The Fightins, and the differences between the two parades (and the relative proximity in time between the two) struck me. So I asked Pat Burrell today about the “Welcome to Charlotte County Parade” earlier this month.
“There was a lady that was driving me, her and her son, and she didn’t know it,” Burrell said. “It’s not her fault. But she didn’t know anything about me being on (the Phillies). And I made a comment when I got up on the back of the car. I said, ‘The last parade I was in was a little bit different.’ She didn’t get it, because she didn’t know, but I kind of laughed to myself.”
If he had cried, I think Phillies fans would have understood.
