Too cheesy? Other possible titles included Philled with a Ray of Hope, Itâ€™s Always Sunny in Philadelphiaâ€¦and Tampa and finally,The 2008 World Seriesâ€”Philadelphia vs. Tampa Bayâ€¦Seriously.
So the wait is over. One of these two teams will be champion for the next six months. If someone told me that they predicted a Philly/Tampa World Series at the beginning of the postseason let alone the beginning of the year, I would tell them to hold on a second because Vince, Ari and the boys are coming to pick me up and Iâ€™ll listen to the rest of that story when I get back from La-La land. Itâ€™s crazy talk.
But here we are anyways. The networks may not love this matchup. Vegas may not love this matchup. Every single one of my friends may not love this matchup. But this is a matchup of the best two teams over the last couple months of the baseball season. Both teams have shown an amazing amount of heart.
