Let’s Go Phillies

Filed in Sports by on October 28, 2009

How could I let today pass without acknowledging tonight’s game? For the second year in a row, we are lucky enough to watch our hometown baseball team play in the World Series. I know I’ve said this before, but as a lifelong Philadelphia sports fan, I can hardly believe that for the second year in a row I get to watch the Phillies play for the Championship. I spent my entire childhood reading the sports page of the Philadelphia Inquirer, longingly looking at the standings (there were FOUR total divisions then) at the teams that actually had a chance of reaching the post season…How many days and nights I spent hoping that they would finish the year above .500! And to prove how quickly human beings can adapt to new surroundings and changed circumstances, I now find myself unable to fathom an October without the Phillies playing for the Championship. Surely, next year, in 2010, we will be doing this again.

No matter who you are rooting for, you have to admit, Phils/Yanks in the World Series is a CLASSIC matchup and one that is going to be VERY entertaining to watch. I dare say this World Series will probably be the best World Series in the last 20 years.

    Yankee New York fans suck ass. Philly-area congressman bets a mowhawk and no New York congressman steps up to the plate. (TMZ)

    Talked to my NY based boss today and called his favorite team the Skankies so I may be looking for employment shortly.

    The worse New York fans in the world, transplanted New Yorkers. Yeah, that’s right I’m talking about you Cormier! ;-)

    Was that a shameless attempt at free promotion of the blog, nemski?

    I can see why you would think that, but I’d put our numbers up against his any day. ;-)
