Fans Mourn Former Phillies Great Darren Daulton with Personal Photos and Tributes

I heard the sad news that former Phillies great Darren Daulton passed away yesterday at age 55 of brain cancer – glioblastoma, the same kinda brain cancer Sen John McCain was recently diagnosed with, as well as my friend Haydon, who is only 50 years old and didn’t discover he had the tumor until he had a mini stroke last month.  I woke up today with legions of my FB friends posting memories of Dutch as well as personal photos taken with him. Here are a few…

North Bowl was definitely one of the best beer gardens

Greyhound Bus was doing an activation and gave out these cute paper visors. It’s so cool when people wear stuff like this.

We (Mike, Moi and Rahel) stopped by Heritage and said hi to Marilyn Russell. I had so much fun being on WOGL FM with her on Friday.
I’m on again this Friday too.

I signed up for Enterprise Car Share, I need wheels to get me to the studio every week. I used to be with Zipcar, but when I went to their office on 12th Street I found they recently left and everything has to be done online. It wasn’t fun trying to get a human on the phone to explain all the levels. Bye Felicia!

It was as I said, an amazing day, with an amazing crowd.
See you tomorrow….
