PHINALLY

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.

Doesn't quite have the same ring as the curse of the Bambino, does it?

If only the Eagles could pull something off...

It's always nice to live in the winning town, even if you do root for another team.

I watched maybe seven innings total. I can't stay up that late anymore. I hate night baseball.....
