    I’m sure we all appreciate seeing Fritzi perform her “wild Thing” tribute

    That song got a lot of Phillies fans’ hopes up throughout the 1993 season – until Mitch “Wild Thing” Williams fell apart in the World Series against the Toronto Blue Jays.
    The Phillies led Game 4 by a 14-9 score and brought in Mitch in the 9th inning. They lost 15-14 in the highest-scoring World Series game ever, even to this day.
    They also brought Wild Thing in to preserve a 6-5 lead in Game 6. He threw that infamous walkoff pitch to Joe Carter, and lost 8-6.
    Had Wild Thing not pitched in those two games, it’s nearly certain that the Phillies would have won the 1993 World Series by a 4-2 margin..

    And as I remember, Phillies fans were even more incensed by the fact that Williams didn’t even seem the least bit bothered by the outcomes.

    Alexikakos, thank you for your enlightenment. my brain wasn’t “open for business”, yet. Kept trying to piece the clues together this a.m., then it all hit me. (Sort of A Beatles’ A Day In the Life moment) all I can say was WOW… Mr. Gilchrist, a fitting tribute, and I find myself joining Nancy and Fritizi in jamming to the defining piece of Mr. Reg Presley and the Troggs’ legacy….

    Never realised that The Troggs had so many fans in the USA. They were rather under-rated in the UK but they were a great band and never pretentious.

    @felix,

    Not necessarily THAT wild thing. The Troggs’ version, as noted here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_Thing_(The_Troggs_song)

    compare that article with this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_Thing_(Tone_L%C5%8Dc_song)
