After the fans in Philadelphia gave Jim Thome a rather warm welcome back to the place he hit his 400th career home run, Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said he thought Philadelphia was a very nice place. He was impressed with both how the media and the fans treated Big Jim. Thome was delighted with the ovation,"It’s something I’ll always remember. It was very special, a lot of emotion inside."
Watch video of Jim Thome and Ozzie Guillen talk about the fans of Philadelphia.
Now why doesn’t the national media take this little story, and send it all over ESPN: on PTI, on SportsCenter, on one of those morning wind bag shows with Skip Bayless. Philadelphia is NICE.
Just wanted to get that off my chest.
Kudos to "Killer K" who pitched a heck of a ball game in his major league career debut. Props are also in order for Aaron Rowand who, on his off day, hit a grand slam to blow this one open after coming in the game earlier as a pinch hitter. Jayson Werth even got in on the action with a tremendous diving grab to prevent a White Sox come back.
And Chase Utley of course. *cough* MVP *cough*
