I'm not a native Philadelphian, but I've been in the area long enough to understand the suffering of its sports fans. Part of the reason why I rooted for the Phillies was to shut up all the crying and whining and defeatist attitude. The other reason is that the Phillies are a bunch of likeable guys. 25 years of championship-less frustration just got released with the Phillies winning the 2008 World Series. Amazingly, the city escaped the celebrations unscathed.
