Even SoJo has Phillie Phever..His dad has been praying all season and last for this, and I swear whenever I put a Phillies shirt on SoJo, they win! Tonight is the first game of the series against Tampa Bay, so you can be sure we'll be watching this evening. Soren will be sleeping though.
My husband lived in Philly in 1993 when they won the pennant and he said it was crazy...people were rioting and destroying stuff. Leave it to Philly fans to burn down their own neighborhoods. Reminds me of the Dead Kennedy's song Riot ("tomorrow you're homeless, tonight it's a blast").
When we lived in the city, there was a myth that the city was cursed by William Penn because no one was supposed to build a building higher that city hall, which has a statue of Penn on top. No sports teams have won since the 80s when the Phillies won the World Series, since skyscrapers started appearing that were taller than city hall.
So send your winning vibes our way for the Phillies, we really need a win to break the curse! And how can you not want our team to win, since we have the hottest pitcher in major league baseball...
