Perfect game

Last night the Phillies won the World Series. It was a perfect game. Not because there were no baserunners, but because it was only 4 innings. Every pitch mattered, every out was that much more impoprtant. For once you could watch a game without falling asleep, and not have to wait until well past midnight to see the finish.


Better luck next year, Rays. You were the better team but the Phils had the better stars, and they showed up. Next season you won't sneak up on anyone, but you can take comfort in knowing that the Yankees are a permanent fixture in your rear view mirror. I know that makes me happy. Looking forward to another battle in 2009.
