Congratulations to the Philadelphia Phillies on winning the NLCS and their second consecutive pennant.
After their series-clinching 10-4 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday night, we saw fans in Philly's Citizens Bank Park holding up signs reading "Bring on the Bronx" and "From Broad St. to Broadway" clearly implying a desire to see their team face the Yankees in the World Series.
We too would like to see that matchup, but don't want to jinx it, with the Yankees currently up 3-1 in a best of 7 contest against frequent nemesis the California Angels. (Yes, I still call them that.)
If the Phillies-Yankees World Series were to happen, it would surely be metaphorically hot contest played in cold weather. The 2009 World Series kicks off Wednesday, October 28th. (Hopefully, in the Bronx.)
