MUSICAL INTERLUDE: You're about to be infected with 'Phillies Fever'
It was the 1970s, OK? Don't hold it against them.
If you made it this far and you're not wearing a haz-mat suit, then you may already be infected with Phillies Fever. Now let us succumb to the full might of the illness ...
That would be Larry Bowa, Mike Schmidt, Dave Cash, Greg Luzinski and Garry Maddox taking turns upon the mic, and one of those buccaneering gentleman has feigned conversation upon the CB radio. You see, Phillies Fever is highly infectious, and we are honor-bound to spread our malaise all over the dance floor.
You see, It's 1976 and the dance floor is whatever floor you're dancing upon.
You see, It's 1976 and even the bad times are having good times.
