So correct, nobody cares you Cheesesteak brain. Go watch old Rocky movies.

The statement "nobody cares" is incorrect. End of story. Lots of people care. Get a life.

I care. This was the most excited I've been for a non-Red Sox WS. My gf and her family are from the Philadelphia area, and I'm so happy for them.

I thought a 3 inning resumption of game 5 would be a bit of a let down, but it turned out okay. And as a result, the World Series ended at a decent time, instead of like 12:30 AM like they normally do

I must confess, my bitterness is somewhat influenced by the Mets' choking and losing the NL East to... the Phillies.

At least I know how you're going to feel on November 5th. I can tell you from the 2004 election it's like having a really bad friggin hangover, but you didn't drink the night before, and you're thinking about moving to Canada too.

Hah, I don't jump ship when things don't go my way, but I really wish all of those liberal pundits who swore up and down they were Canada-bound in 2004 had actually left.

You would know, the Phillies have been doing that since 1980, the Mets only since 1986. Congrats. Enjoy it while it lasts, because Election Night is going to suck for you.

Hopefully.

I had the pleasure of being at Citizens Bank Park watching your Mets choke last September. There were a lot of Mets fans, but WAY more Phillies fans.

Blame the low TV audiences on the incompetence of Bud Selig and the horrible Fox coverage. Buck. Suck on this: while your Mets were choking AGAIN this year, and you were despondly posting about it here, the World Champion Phillies were just getting warmed up.

Heh. Guess I should have read the rest of the thread before posting. But what good is it to win the World Series if we can't taunt Mets fans? .

In fact, what good are the Mets at all, except as the subject of ridicule?
