5 years ago tonight: Matt Stairs hit the moon shot, earned free beer for life

Oct 13, 2013, 8:21 PM EDT

source:  Still one of the best days to be a Phillies fan in my life.

Matt Stairs tweet this afternoon reminded us all of the moon shot he hit off of Jonathan Broxton out in LA to really get the belief that a world championship was a realistic thing in Philadelphia at an all-time high.

He’s right, too. Love home runs.

Today over at Beerleaguer they take a look at the career Stairs could have had. Worth a read.

    Just for all the people that said how Phillies fans were just paranoid saying that Joe Buck was against the Phils that entire playoffs….listen to the “excitement” in his voice when Stairs hits a series, season, changing homerun.

    I’ve heard people sound more excited talking about an upcoming appointment with the dentist
