This article seriously made me cry at work today. This isn't the whole article, mods, just the intro, but if it's too much, let me know. You have to subscribe to BP to read it, I think.

The Champions

by Joe Sheehan

Baseball is just fine. Rain, cold weather, long games, late games, poor TV ratings, worse umpiring... none of it matters. Nothing that makes this many people this happy is ever going to go away.

Watching your favorite team win a championship isn’t the highlight of anyone’s life. We love, we marry, we parent, we achieve, we have all of these experiences with family and friends. These are the things that make up a life.

Your team, though... you share that with everyone. You don’t go through that alone, with your spouse or your kids, with your friends or your business partners. You live that passion in public, in a stadium, with thousands, tens of thousands of others, and your heart goes out on your sleeve and stays there, no matter how badly it gets bruised. Everyone around you, walking around for years—28 of them, say—all of you with a shared history of joy and pain, of almost and not-quite-almost, memories of the great third baseman or the scrappy center fielder, but also of a left-handed reliever gone awry, and the other guys jumping up and down, spiking your ill-placed heart, pain you’d try to forget if only those damned highlights people would let you.

And in a moment, you’re healed. In the time it takes for a reliever—a perfect reliever—to drop to his knees and raise his arms to the sky, it all goes away. There’s no disappointment, there’s no pain, there’s no frustration, there’s just you and 46,000 like you, screaming into the night sky with that reliever, a building full of happy, surrounded by a city of joy, all looking at one thing: baseball.

That moment is why baseball is just fine. Baseball makes people happy, so happy that they hug strangers, cry in public, scream at the top of their lungs, or just sit, slumped, shaking, relieved, disbelieving.

Just after the game, maybe three minutes, I was walking through the stadium down to the field, probably half as fast as I needed to be moving. I couldn’t rush through all that happy, couldn’t walk through the crowd and not read every face, soak in the expressions as the ruddy-cheeked, apple-nosed Philadelphians shouted gleefully to no one in particular, demanding high-fives, high-tens, a high-twenty if you stalled in front of the right person.

he was interviewd after the game and asked if he would retire while on top...he said "no" he has one year left on contract and would finish it out even if not with the phillies...there was talk during the season that would play last season in seattle if phils didn't bring him back.

I was 20 feet to the right of that camera when that happened. I left Broad and Pattison about 10 minutes later, after they started burning trash cans and newspapers, and I was hit in the hand and leg by beer cans. I hopped on the Orange Line and ended up at the huge crush of people at Broad and Walnut, a few minutes before the riot cops showed up in phalanx, with a school bus full of more police behind them. Totally nuts. I ended up going to Bonner's with a few buddies, and then making out with some hot Penn chick from Sri Lanka for about two hours. Sometimes, luck is really on your side.

Not to start a political argument, but I thought this was funny:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081031/...IktStE4_mM5QcF

Quote:
Palin received a smattering of boos when she said she was glad to be in the home state of the World Series-champion Philadelphia Phillies. Northwestern Pennsylvania baseball fans favor the Cleveland Indians or Pittsburgh Pirates.

But a Phillies reference later in Williamsport in central Pennsylvania got a better reception. Palin spoke at Bowman Field, home of the Phillies' minor-league affiliate, the Williamsport Crosscutters.

"I'm sure you're all pretty doggone proud of the world champion Phillies," she exclaimed to the delight of the crowd that filled the 4,200-seat facility. Thousands more surrounded the stage set up in the middle of the infield.

The parade was unreal from what I saw on tv. Everyone has been well behaved. Sporting my new Phillies World Series Champions t-shirt today. It's a great sight.
