The LAST time the Phils won it I was living in Phils land. My mom went to the dark side (away from the true light of Cardinals fandom). I did like the team with Schmidt and Rose and Carlton. Those were the good old days. Scrappy team with a good work ethic.
I even like this Phils team. It was refreshing to see a large slugger with an MVP like Ryan realize "hey, if I lose weight it will help the team".
But, still, they are the Phils. A glimmer to the wondrous joy of the Cardinals. :D
