Phils Win!!! Can Ya Believe It???

Phillies 4, Rays 3
Recap 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
TAMPA 0 0 0 1 0 1 1 0 0 3 10 0
PHILA 2 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 - 4 8 1

W: J. Romero (2-0)
L: J. Howell (0-2)
SV: B. Lidge (2)

Wow!!! The Phils did it!!! Being a long time Philly sports fan - I have to admit, I was preparing myself for another collapse. It's happened so often.

The last time the Phillies won a World Series, youngest son Chris was less than 3 months old & older son Michael had just turned 4. Me??? I was only 24. So despite the fact that I've littered this earth with my miserable presence for parts of 6 decades - my kids have been alive for the same number of Phillies WS Championships as me. 2 of 'em in 100&twentysomething years.

So here I go with a bold prediction - The Phillies will win the World Series again... in 2036. Chris will be 56, Mike 60 & me, I'll probably be dead.

Enjoy the parade guys....

Okay - I'll admit my faith in all things Philly sports ain't so strong but I've always believed that 2nd place still makes ya the first loser. Youngest son Chris called at 1AM (2AM his time) all pumped. I wonder if he made it to work today? He's trying to get older bro Mike to go with him to the parade tomorrow.
