First off congratulations to the Philadelphia Phillies for winning the World Series last night against Tampa. That first ever 3 inning continuation win last night was a weird finale to what was otherwise a snoozer of a series.
With that said, a 25 year drought between World Championships for the city (1983 76er’s) is no big deal despite what the talking heads over at ESPN keep wanting us to believe this morning with numerous references to that fact. Enough already!
Try being a Cleveland sports fan sometime before giving me your sports sob story. 25 years is a walk in the park for us considering we have to go back to 1964 to find our city celebrating anything. And please don’t give me your Chicago Cubs meme. Yes 1908 was a long time ago, but I have 2 words for you, Bulls and Bears.
Again congratulations to Philly fans everywhere and be sure to savor this victory, it is something that for most outside of the Northeast happens very few times in one’s lifetime. For those Cleveland fans born after January of 1964, it has never and might never happen.
Just wait until next year…
UPDATE: The Bleacher Report echoes my sentiments perfectly.
