Speaking of championships it’s been a long, long drought for Philly fans. But might that change soon. Monday eve. The Birds showed that they might have what it takes to make it back to the Big Dance. Yes they still need to fix a glaring problem in the middle of the defense and their last play on Monday shows that a big play, big target receiver is still needed. But the Birds can hang with Big D and probably the rest of the league.
The Fightin Phils are attempting to somewhat repeat last year’s exciting pennant run and hit the playoffs for the second year in a row. If they continue to keep it together it’s possible that they too could bring home a 21st century trophy for the City of Brotherly Love. Though they may not be as good as the Mets and Cubs on paper and certainly would have an uphill climb against the Angels, Bosox or Rays the Phils could get hot at just the right time and bring home the bacon.
Whatever happens it looks like there will be plenty of fireworks in South Philly over the next couple of months.
