The Philadelphia Phillies are now the best baseball team in the world! I have been waiting a long time to say that! The Phillies beat the Rays 4-3 in the decisive Game 5. The game started from the bottom of the sixth and went back and forth until Pedro Feliz drove in the game-winning run in the seventh.
The Phillies have culminated this year with the sweetest of prizes. The players have dreamt of this since the first smell of spring. No, actually the players have dreamt of this since they first saw a World Series game on T.V.
But let's not beat around the bush, this win was for the fans. I went down to Cottman Avenue and partied in the street all night long. Cottman Ave. is that place on they always show on T.V. with the massive and crazy crowds, just in case you aren't familiar with the area.
We are the Champions! We are the Champions! No time for losers (Mets)! 'Cause we are the Champions.... of the World!
I can't tell you how much this championship means to the city of Philadelphia. More than the nonsports fan could even contemplate. I, along with other Phils fans, am so happy they could finally win it last night.
I will be attending the parade tomorrow afternoon on Broad Street. I will write about that tomorrow night.
