It took 28 years and 8 days but the Philadelphia Phillies are once
again the World Champions of baseball! It took three days to win the
final game but the 4-3 victory put Philadelphia into a euphoric frenzy
it has not known for over a generation.
Brad Lidge was absolute perfection as Pat Gillick’s prized off
season acquisition proved to be a genius move as he was 48 for 48 in
save opportunities saving his best for last. Lidge was simply perfect
all season and made the difference for this Phillies team. Tug McGraw
is smiling from heaven.
2008 World Series MVP Cole Hamels earned the honor for the second
straight series. Steve Carlton was always tops in my book but Hamels
may be better. I only wish he could have gotten that fifth win.
This is a moment I have waited most of my life to experience again.
It was well worth the wait! This time I am old enough to have champagne
and my bottle was just popped! Let’s celebrate Philadelphia! Our
Phillies are number 1. See you at the parade. It is going to be a party
like Philadelphia has never seen!
