Actually we do have an ongoing thread that evolved from picking the ALCS and NLCS winners to picking the series, with several people chiming in for your Phillies. ;-)

Since I am a (sad) Boston Red Sox fan, and Terry Francona used to coach in Philli, I say go Phillies!

Um... yeah really.  We've been talking baseball for weeks... from picking division winners and wild cards, to picking ALCS and NLCS winners, to picking the series; the thread may not be titled exclusively about "the Phillies" (it's an evolving thread), but it was noted on 10/16 that the Phillies were in. I was trying to be supportive and positive by replying to your post and pointing out the ongoing thread (in case you wanted to actually participate) and the fact there were several people in it (including me) who picked the Phillies... lighten up already.

I checked the thread you mentioned and the last post on that thread was over a week before this thread was started.   So no the Phillies were NOT being discussed.   

Here is a copy of the last post date and time on the thread you mention Bookmonkey  Date Posted: 10/20/2008 7:40 PM ET

This thread was started Date Posted: 10/27/2008 11:46 AM ET.  A week, I have to agree it's sad.

I've been waiting to write.  Very superstitious (did I spell that right?)  :)  I'm one of those people that wears the same hat to games if they win when I have it on...etc.  Yes, I have issues.  I've been to all the home postseason games.  Yes, I sat on concrete for 4 hours Saturday night waiting for the rain to stop, and was just in the suspended game.  Hoping to get this thing over later tonight.  Gonna freeze my "stuff" in the process.  :)

Wow bookmonkey I didn't really read your response till now (me lighten up?) but I still stand by my statement um...not really.  The last post to that thread you pointed out was over a week before I started this one on 10/20...Game One of the World series was on 10/22, after the last post to that thread so how exactly was the Phillies in the WS discussed?? ( I think Sam pointed out the dates as well).  I wasn't trying to start an arguement...just pointing out that NO it wasn't really discussed.    This is a happy moment for me and I'd like to keep it that way so I'll stop there.

Wasn't tonight supposed to be Game 6 in Tampa?  I'm assuming that if Tampa wins tonight everyone flies to Tampa and plays Thursday and Friday if necessary?

Forgive me, but your thread title ("Wow! The Phillies are in the World Series") seemed to imply you were surprised that no one had mentioned that the Phillies were "in" the World Series, and all I did was try to refer you to a thread where we had been discussing the playoffs in general over the past few weeks (there is another baseball thread as well), including a mention that the Phillies were "in" the WS.

I find it "very sad" that an honest attempt at inclusion and pointing out positive things being said about your team (several people - including me - picking them to win the WS) in another thread was met with such aggression and sarcasm.

Gotta love the ignore button!

Game 5 was delayed due to poor weather so they are playing the next 3 1/2 innings (hopefully just 3!) in Philly....and if we are unlucky tonight, then we are back in Tampa.

I LOVE A PARADE!!!  I was there for every home postseason game.  UNDEFEATED at home in the playoffs and series!   I'm still walking around in shock.  Got out of the parking lot last night before the cops came.  :)  Everyone look for me on tv tomorrow.  I'll be wearing RED.  :)
