Those of my readers who share my interest in costume are probably wondering what I dressed up as for Halloween.

The short answer is that I didn't dress up; my husband and I went to our local game store for a night of board gaming instead. That was partly because there weren't any Halloween parties in the area, and partly because going door-to-door for candy has no appeal for me.

But it was also because I had already had my Halloween scare. No, it had nothing to do with the U.S. presidential election, or the economy. It had no connection with Sarah Palin, or Barack Obama, or John McCain.

What gave me that frisson of fright was... the Phillies. Or, more precisely, the celebratory parade for the 2008 Phillies team (our local baseball team, for non-sports and non-American readers) which just won the World Series championship. To spare those of my readers who don't care about parades, or sports, and don't want my rant to take up valuable real estate on their friends page, I will put the rest under an LJ-cut.

Duck the confetti! )
