I was surprised when I checked my favorite site at lunchtime nothing was posted about the Phillies winning it all last night. Don't call me a Phillies fan because I'm not. I'm a National League fan and I'm glad the world series winner came from the NL. If it wasn't the Cubs, at least someone in the NL won it.
Two thoughts that were going through my mind last night as I finished watching the game. First, it seemed like months ago my favorite team was beaten out. It just seemed forever ago I listened to Pat and Ron and watched games on TV. Second, what was Fox doing repeating over and over..... player by player.... running in to jump on the pile of Phillies? Ryan Howard jumping on your back was bad enough. But they showed each player over and over running in. Now I want to win the series as much as anyone here, but I just couldn't imagine the Cubs with this celebration. I hope it was just me, but I couldn't get that picture in my head.
The best moment was the interview with Jamie Moyer. He's been around longer, seen more, probably has more stories than anyone. Nice touch at the end of a "serviceable" career.
Did anyone else think the season is long past and any thought on the Phillies Pile?
