Philly Phantastic

Congratulations to the 2008 Philadelphia Phillies, Champions of Baseball.

Funny to think that last year all this fuss was made about them being the first franchise to lose 10.000 games.

Nice to see them win.

It was easily one of the odder World Series deciding games, with the whole suspension thing, but you know what it means?

It means that every Philadelphia schoolchild got to stay up late to see their team win the World Series. And, as Yankee fans, we all know what those first memories of a World Championship celebration can do.

The Countdown to the day CC Sabathia files for Free Agency has begun.

The entries for the Ludicrous Trade Proposal Contest will be posted tomorrow.


  1. The moment that Charlie Hayes caught that pop-up in 1996 was one of the best moments of my life. I was too young to remember the 1978 Championship so the 1996 is really my first one. It's sad that those photos look a little grainier than I remember.

  2. I am happy for the Phillies and their fans and glad that they won. It was hard enough to loose the East and wildcard spots to Tampa Bay and Boston. Couldn't bear to loose a World Series title to them too!
