Phillies baseball was good again to the Nearys, as Father’s Day saw Kevin notch another victory in a disappointing season to date.


Kevin, Christopher, Lindsey, Chris L. (nurse), and Joe (dad) were able to spend the weekend together and attend the game on Sunday. The weather, supposed to be stormy based on early week forecasts, turned sunny (It is, after all, Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and pleasantly breezy. It was a great day and the end to a great weekend as Kevin’s brother Chris and his girlfriend Lindsey came up to spend a couple days with him and to celebrate Fathers Day.

Coming up is another trip to the ballpark this Saturday as the Phillies will be taking on the Nationals on Saturday at 3:05, with an even bigger crew of Kevin’s fans. Kevin’s brother Joe (JP), fiancé Olivia, future in laws Stan and Kim Cotton, Joe and girlfriend Kathy Perkins, and nurse Chris L. all will be attending the game and sitting in section 104. If you are at the game, be sure to stop by to say hello to Kevin and to welcome to Philadelphia the newest members of the Neary family, the Cottons. Afterwards it’s back home and firing up the grill to celebrate a Phils win (hopefully) and Joseph and Olivia’s and Stan and Kim’s visit. We are skipping the game on Sunday so Kevin can spend time with his brother and future sister in law.

Now, a word about the upcoming golf tournament. Next Saturday is July 4th which is only two months from the close of ticket sales for the tournament. Bill Burland has been pushing hard to sell out the tournament as early as possible and the results are impressive. As of today he has 65 golfers signed up which leaves only about 55 spots open, with commitments for about 40 more golfers. Please sign up as early as possible so we can make the necessary arrangements and, more importantly, so you don’t get shut out from a great event on a great course.

Have a great Fourth of July!
