Chase Utley's Return to Philadelphia

A standing ovation that lasted almost two minutes.

A tip of the cap from longtime teammate Ryan Howard.

A solo home run that warranted a curtain call.

A grand slam that also warranted a curtain call.

A home run by Howard, too.

Two home runs and 5 RBIs in Philadelphia on his first trip there as a visiting player; he had never done this while playing in Philadelphia.

Amidst the Olympics, still the lead story on Sports Center.

Sometimes things converge and you get a beautiful moment or a series of moments that become a beautiful chapter.

Last night at the Bank was one of those times.

As Harry Kalas once famously said, "Chase Utley, you are the man."

Great night.
