Congratulations to the Philadelphia Phillies and to the fans of the Phillies. Yes, I am a Yankee fan but I live in South Jersey right outside of Philadelphia, so since the Phillies were not playing the Yankees I was pulling for the Phillies this year. Of the 13 major markets with 4 profesional teams Philadelphia has gone the longest without a championship. It's been 25 years (100 seasons - 4 teams) since the City of Brotherly love has crowned a champ. Looks like the curse of Billy Penn has been lifted.
