Phillies win in the ninth

That will teach me to turn my back on the TV during the post-season.

I completely missed the Phillies’ sensational bottom-of-the-ninth victory over the Dodgers tonight.

In the old days, I might have had to stay up for the 11 o’clock news to find out what happened. And if I didn’t do that, I’d have to wait for the paper or a morning radio broadcast.

Tonight? One quick check of mlb.com and I’m up to speed. And I got to watch the winning hit on video.

I wonder if my great-grandparents had the same sense of wonder in turning on a light bulb after sunset.
