Congratulations, Phillies …

Posted in Baseball at 3:05 am by


[Just caught up with this on MLB network's "classics," and I don't think its over rated at all.]

It’s December 30th, and I didn’t want to let 2008 run out without finally wishing a hearty congratulations to the World Champion Phillies and their fans.  Better late than when hell freezes over never.  I know, I know, for Cub fans, 2008 was “our year.” “Our Year.”  What a sad fucking joke.  Leaves a tinny, metallic taste in my mouth just to say it.  But I’m over all that now.  And not wishing Jason Cohen and Chuck Meehan a congratulations would be petty no matter how I feel.   Congrats.  See Gerard, I’m classy when the situation calls for it.  At least Obama won, so that’s something.

    Obama won?

    Thank you Ben. If it is of any consolation, consider that talent-wise, the Cubs
    certainly arent a team with a rapidly closing window and there isnt a team in the NL Central that should even come close to the Cubs in 2009. At the very least, another crack at the rings next October is a given. Things could be a lot worse, like you could be a SF Giants, Pirates or Orioles fan.

    Or a Mariners fan!
