We all knew it was coming. Up 3-1 on a team that didn't seem to have the heart, we KNEW it was going to happen. But dawn today still seems a little bit surreal as I watch the celebrations in Mayfair and on Broad Street last night.
This team still has a lot to do as it readies for the Devil Rays or BoSox. Charlie's mom and Shane's grandmother must be laid to rest. We need to figure out who the third starter it. We need to think about a right-handed DH.
But right now we can celebrate the Phils and their first trip to the World Series since my brother Matt was 14. Today's his birthday and this is a fitting present.
Happy Birthday Brother!
