The World Series has been over for what, almost two months now? Soon will be, anyhow, and the thing I've been putting off during that time is, well, congratulating the Phillies.
I guess it's finally time.
So, congratulations, however belatedly, to everyone who was happy when Philadelphia won the World Series. I was not happy, but that doesn't matter.
You see the Phillies beat Tampa to kick off the fall, which was bad enough, but then it's been one financial disaster after another - nothing but bad news on the economy as we head to winter.
I'm happy now though, which is why I guess I'm finally, though grudgingly, able to congratulate the Phillies.
Why am I happy?
Well apparently, at least according to CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, and the New York Yankees, the economy is working again. That's great news!
And with the Yankees spending like, well, the Yankees, it feels like order has been restored to the Baseball Universe. Now if Christmas will hurry up and get here, and get over, then we can get on with the New Year's parties and such, and then, finally, spring training will be in sight . . . and then may the baseball gods bring healthy arms and lively bats to everyone in the N.L. East except the Phillies.
