Watch the entire 1980 Phillies Championship Parade in all its 80's glory

Watch the entire 1980 Phillies Championship Parade in all its 80's glory

I stumbled upon a pretty rare YouTube gem this afternoon which is the entire broadcast of the 1980 Phillies Championship Parade on PHL17. Some of you old heads may remember this day rather well, but many of you probably weren't even born yet when the Phillies first took their first float ride down Broad Street. This video gives a remarkable look back at what things were like in 1980.

The parade took place on October 22nd, 1980. I was about a week away from being born. A few observations:

- Announcers and reporters on PHL17 included Bob Bradley, Howard Eskin, Dan Baker, Gene Hart, and Sid Doherty, before Harry Kalas takes the mic for the ceremony.

- God bless television of today. We like to mock whichever host or announcer annoys us a little too much every game, but look at the footage from this telecast and compare it to the camera quality and angles we have today. We're downright spoiled.

- 10-20 people deep in center city according to the telecast

- The victory celebration at the end of the parade took place at JFK Stadium, the long destroyed venue perhaps best remembered for hosting Live Aid back in 1985.

- The shots of the Philly skyline barely look recognizable. No Comcast Tower obviously, but also no Liberty Place I or II. Or any tall building really. What a different city.

- At around 21:30 or so in the video, the crowd breaks through the barriers in center city and starts running down Broad Street alongside the Phillies on the flatbeds. This is by far the best part.

- Former umpire Eric Gregg joins the telecast around the 30:30 mark

- Johnny Callison, a Phillies great who your father probably told you about having a great cannon, joined the telecast around 43:30

- Del Ennis joins around 49:00

- Harry Kalas takes over the announcing duties at JFK Stadium around the 57:15 minute mark

- I think one random Phillie is wearing an Eagles hat

- The players -- including Mike Schmidt, Larry Bowa, Pete Rose, and Tug McGraw -- start taking the mic around the 1:05 mark.

- Tugger and Michael Jack the best speeches. Both keep it short and sweet but Tugger takes a little jab at New York which was kind of funny.

Matt Read out approximately a month; Flyers recall Taylor Leier, send down Scott Laughton

Matt Read out approximately a month; Flyers recall Taylor Leier, send down Scott Laughton

Updated: 7 p.m.

Flyers winger Matt Read will miss approximately a month with an upper-body injury suffered in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Predators when he was checked by Filip Forsberg. Sources tell CSNPhilly.com's Tim Panaccio the injury is an oblique muscle pull in Read's upper torso.

The 30-year-old has six goals and four assists for 10 points through 27 games. Five of those goals came in the Flyers' first five games.

To replace Read's roster spot, the Flyers recalled Taylor Leier and sent Scott Laughton to AHL affiliate Lehigh Valley. That likely means penalty-kill specialist Boyd Gordon (back), who is eligible to come off long-term injury reserve, will be activated.

Leier, 22, has been playing well with the Phantoms, posting six goals and 14 assists in 22 games (see Future Flyers Report). This is Leier's second stint of the season with the Flyers, albeit his first was short — one game on Oct. 25 in which he was a healthy scratch. He made his NHL debut last season and played six games.

Laughton was a healthy scratch the past five games.

If for some reason Gordon is not activated, the Flyers can call up another forward from Lehigh Valley. Jordan Weal is tied for second in the AHL with 24 points (nine goals, 15 assists) in 20 games, while veteran winger Colin McDonald is an experienced, bottom-six option.

Emily Youcis, aka 'Pistachio Girl,' fired from vendor position at Citizens Bank Park

Emily Youcis, aka 'Pistachio Girl,' fired from vendor position at Citizens Bank Park

A popular food vendor at Citizens Bank Park who supports the white nationalist movement has been fired.

Aramark, which operates food concessions at Citizens Bank Park, tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that Emily Youcis is no longer employed after "publicly connecting our company to views that contradict our values."

Youcis, aka "Pistachio Girl," tweeted Monday that she was let go last week.

Youcis was involved in a tussle last month outside the conference of the National Policy Institute, a white nationalist group. Youcis tried to interview protesters, asking questions like: "Do you hate white people?" A protester spray-painted Youcis' hair and a photographer was bloodied. Some protesters were taken into police custody.

The conference drew headlines after some attendees evoked Adolf Hitler's Third Reich with cries of "Heil Trump" and use of the Nazi salute.
