Of course! It's Philadelphia, what did you expect?

It wasn't a real boo - you wouldn't have had to ask - but it was more of a good natured "Yeah, thanks for the trophy and all, but we can't cheer for the guy that made us play the top half of the 6th in a monsoon."

But, wow, I've never heard such a cheer for a Phillies manager (Charlie Manuel) in my life. Danny Ozark managed some of the best teams of the late seventies, and he was ALWAYS roundly catcalled by the Phaithphul.

And, Yes, PG, I was wound tighter than the proverbial drum. Especialy since the Rays tied it again in the top of the 7th with Baldelli's homer. And Lidge had a history of making easy saves into relatively adventurous affairs. But he really lived up to the "lights out" moniker.

I have to hand it to Tampa, though. They're not just a good, but a great young team, and they will be a force for years to come. Now, they've got the experience - they just have to wait 'til next year.

The future is fun,
The future is fair.
You may already have won!
You may already be there.

Congrats, Philly fans. Now can you stop bitching about your championship drought?

So no one's going to mention the piss poor job the umpire's did? Seriously, though, congrats to the Phillies.
