Attendees to the 2012 Summer Olympics in London could have walked into an Apple Store and picked-up one of four different pins.  Apple gave away pins designed to look like a white iPhone, black iPhone, white iPad, and a black iPad.  Each one features the United Kingdom flag on the screen.  They are quite easy to come by and cost just a few dollars.

Speaking of the iPhone.  Have you downloaded the Sports Card Album app yet?  Its pretty much the best thing to hit the hobby since the rookie card.

Phillies vs. White Sox – Game 1 – 7/13/13

With Friday night’s game cancelled the decision to play a doubleheader was made for Saturday.  The Phillies ended up losing Game 1 5-4 in 11 innings, and about 45 minutes later Game 2 began.  The Phillies won Game 2 2-1 in 13 innings.  Throw in a rain delay into Game 1, and both games having extra innings, the Phillies almost played twelve hours of baseball.

Citizens Bank Park is really nice.  Everything is easy to get to and the food is very good.  I had a hot dog, soft pretzel, and lemonade.  I came out of the Majestic Clubhouse Store with a new shirt and three pins.  The Carlos Ruiz bobblehead was obtained before I even got into the stadium.
