If you're a Phillies fan, and really if you're a baseball fan, you have to watch this. Nine members of the 2008 Phillies roster/coaching staff reunited to tell stories about that era and most specifically the World Series run.

Chase Utley, Ryan Howard, Jayson Werth, Pat Burrell, Shane Victorino, Scott Eyre, Charlie Manuel and bullpen coach Mick Billmeyer gathered on a Zoom call hosted by Brad Lidge and presented by Citizens Bank. The result was 45 minutes of laughs and some stories that haven't been shared publicly.

Some of the highlights were:

Parade hijinks and the World Series Game 5 afterparty at Burrell's

The inside story of Chase Utley's famous parade speech

• Everything Jayson Werth said

• A tall tale from Charlie

• Snacks in the bullpen bathroom

• A Billmeyer story about So Taguchi

You can relive the Phillies' 2008 World Series parade when it re-airs Sunday at 4 p.m. on NBC Sports Philadelphia.
