Here we are, the first week in November and the first time a Game 6 is going to be played in the World Series in six years. TV ratings for FOX continue to soar.
In winning Game 5, the resilient Phillies made sure there would be no celebration in their house in front of their fans. Odds are still against the Phillies to come from down 3-1 to win but this is a special team of special people. They play one game at a time and have won more games on the road than any team this year.
When the Whiz Kids won the pennant in 1950, a song was written about the “Fightin’ Phils.” Deborah Arden Stern, a long-time fan, e-mailed the lyrics:
The Fight, Fight, Fight-in-Phils!
It’s a tough, tough team to beat.
They’re out to win, win ev-’ry day.
Every victory is sweet.
Watch ‘em hit that ball a mile; play a
game that’s packed with thrills.
Get Pa to bring your Mother, Sister,
and your Brother
Come out to see the Fight-in-Phils.
The Fight, Fight, Fight-in Phils!
Very fitting description of today’s Phillies.
