It's Sunny In Philadelphia

Congrats to the Phils, 2008 World Series Champions.

Let's see, this decade has seen the White Sox, Phils, and Red Sox (twice) overcome their sad pasts and win as many, collectively, in the last five years as they had in the previous fifty.

The Yankees remain stuck at 26.

Joe Queenan, Phils fan and poison penman, once noted that the odd site of a Yankees fan with a sign reading, "The Yankees Deserve A 27th Championship!"

I hope you didn't hurt yourself falling off you chair laughing.

I still hate the Yankees, and the Red Sox are no Yankees, and I'm happy to share the wealth.

That's why I'm voting for Obama.

PS - Let's not forget that Brian Ca$hmoney took Bobby Abreu and Cory Lidle from the Phils for four players who have accounted for exactly 22 total innings of major league ball.

And the Phils are the ones flying a flag next year.
