Bring On the World Series!

The Phillies are National League Champions for the first time since 1993! I've been waiting all night to sat those exact words. The Phillies put the Dodgers down easily last night, with a final score of 5-1. Cole Hamels pitched beautifully, only giving up the homer to Man Ram. The Phillies will be facing either the Red Sox or the Rays on baseball's biggest stage.

The Phillies are finally reaping the benefits of all their hard work throughout the season. Jimmy Rollins led off the game with a homer, and the Philies never turned back after that. But let's not talk about the game. If you want to see a box score, you can go to or look in your local newspaper.

The Phillies have a great chance to break Philadelphia's sports' championship drought (or curse, if you prefer). Everybody is going nuts in Philly, and I can tell you that for a fact. I can't wait to hear the roar of Citizens Bank Park when the Phils host the World Series. I wish I had a ticket.

It looks like the Phillies will be facing off against the Tampa Bay Rays in the World Series. The Rays currently lead the Boston Red Sox in the ALCS 3-1.

The Phillies have taken this team by storm. I have to say that before the Phillies made the playoffs last season, Philly was a football town. If the Eagles were playing, nobody even thought about checking the Phillies score. But now, since that magical playoff birth last season, Philadelphia has turned Phillies Red. Now that the Phillies are in the World Series, Phillie fan support is at its peak. The Eagles? There not even playing this week. The Phillies will take center stage.
