Phillies fans react to winning the World Series

Somebody actually dedicated a website to the fan aftermath following the Phillies winning the World Series.

The city of Philadelphia is probably praying the Phillies go at least another 28 years before winning anything ever again.

Do the Rays have a small edge if the weather continues to delay Series?

Game 5 of the World Series is supposed to continue tonight…maybe.

“While obviously we want to finish Game 5 as soon as possible, the forecast for today does not allow for us to continue the game this evening,” he said. “We are closely monitoring tomorrow’s forecast and will continue to monitor the weather on an hourly basis. We will advise fans as soon as we are able to make any final decisions with respect to tomorrow’s schedule.”

The forecast for today calls for clearing skies by the early afternoon, with temperatures in the upper 30s by (partial) game time.

“We get to bat four times, they get to bat three. We get 12 outs, they get nine,” Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said. “We are definitely coming with the mind-set that we are going to win that game.”

This situation has to benefit the Rays slightly. The Phillies had all of the momentum when they went up 3-1, but the longer the series draws out, the more Tampa probably settles in and relaxes. This is one of the craziest situations facing a Series in some time.
