The Morning After

Sill deliciously, deliriously happy from last night's game. I was a bit stoic last night immediately after the win, but this morning, I kid you not, I'm tearing up as I read the numerous articles in the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News about the game and celebrations in Philly. One of the rare good things that comes out of being a die-hard fan of a team as historically inept as the Phillies is that you never, ever take championships (division, league or World Series -- the last of which I would like to remind people is something the Philles have only done once in their 126-season existence) for granted and there's never any feelings of entitlement. After a night like last night, there's just unadulterated joy, and suffering through so many losing seasons and (more recently) several near misses at making the postseason makes the high of this moment that much better.

I'll return to my default worrisome, pessimistic fan-mode by the time the World Series starts on Wednesday, but for now, I'm enjoying every minute of this.

Next up for me: deciding whose name and number I pick for the World Series jersey I will figure out a way to purchase once they are available from
