Philadelphia Freedom

Congratulations to the Phillies, 2008 World Series champions.  On the anniversary of William Penn landing in Pennsylvania and two days after the game started, the Phillies win Game 5 to claim the series 4 games to 1 over Tampa and end the supposed curse of William Penn (I would argue Philly teams had played teams better than them the past 25 years in title games).  Nice to see Charlie Manuel get to the top; I don’t think there are many nicer people out there.  Cole Hamels, Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Howard, Brad Lidge, et al peaked at the right time, plowing through Milwaukee, LA, and Tampa to grab the trophy and, for what it is worth, show they know how to play ball in the National League too.  Cue the Rocky music!

Also, nice to have a World Series game end at a reasonable hour.  I guess it takes starting with the bottom of the 6th inning to achieve that.
