The dream has come true. We are finally at a waypoint at which we have not approached in 15 years, and have never approached with such confidence. Back in the 1870s, the Philadelphia Quakers were the team to beat. 100 years ad 10,000 losses later, the thought process was not quite the same. But as the fall classic comes to a close, we are being watched by almost 85 million people. As the sports shops in small towns are making handsome profits from phillies gear, we prepare for what we have spent 28 years waiting for: the championship. The most coveted prize in all of sports, the world series trophy has been won by 27 out of the 30 present day teams (the only teams not to win one are the Washington Nationals, Texas Rangers, The Houston Astros, Tampa Bay Rays, The Seattle Mariners, Colorado Rockies, Milwaukee Brewers and the San Diego Padres). The chance is here; take it!
