well hello world series

Well damn. WHO woulda thunk it? The Phillies are going to the World Series.

I hear they have greased the poles in center city Philadelphia.

I remember in 1980 when the Phillies went to the World Series, I wasn’t allowed to miss school and go to the parade. I was a junior at Shipley, and I remember people going to the Bryn Mawr train station to take the train downtown.

I wonder if they will end up facing the Yankees or Astros? Apparently there is a rain delay.

I am not going to pretend I am a giant sports fan, because all my friends and family would laugh, but I thought I needed to note this momentous occasion. And Philadelphia needs some good news. Go Phillies!
