WS Memories: Rocky Makes His Obligatory Appearance


At the parade on Friday, I was a little surprised there weren't more costumes. With everyone focused on the Phils World Series win, the fans were clad in red and white, caps, jersey T's, and throwbacks. There were some makeshift costumes, like Super Phillies Girl here, but it wouldn't be a Philly thing without Rocky.

Sadly, the fuzz had a bubble rule in effect for World Series MVP types.

World Series MVP Cole Hamels
tried to fist bump a fan dressed like Philly's favorite fictional
boxer, Rocky Balboa, but authorities intervened before they quite
pulled it off.

No touching!

See any good costumes at the parade? Send 'em our way. Here's Rocky (aka, Tom Shaw) acting the part:
