world series champions 2008 the phillies
the phillies did it. i was 13 and in junior high school the last time the phillies won the world series. 28 years later they finally did it again. for those that are superstious comcast tried to make sure that a philadelphia team would finally win. they put a small statue of william penn facing the correct direction on top the the brand new comcast building in philly. you see the theory is that once the gentlemans agreement not to build anything higher than billy penn was broken our teams were cursed. now he is once again atop the highest building finished this year and now we have the first major league sport title in 25 years( the last win was basketball in 83). by the way the same about of time billy penn was not the highest point.
