Where My Team Stands: Philadelphia Phillies

Where My Team Stands: Philadelphia Phillies: "See?I only know how to expect the worst. I can only hope that at some point in my life, I'm legitimately surprised by an outcome. I want to experience a shock to the system that keeps a smile on my face for days. I want to tell people I'm a Philadelphia sports fan and not get a 'Sorry' as a response or, in most cases, a look of utter disgust. I don't feel like I'm owed a championship. I don't feel like this will alter the course of my life if the Phillies win the World Series. I won't contemplate hanging myself if they don't. But I do want to win. Now that I'm an adult, I want to know what that feels like. Even if it only happens once."

Mr. Fish would like to point out that one of the people who commented on the story had a username of 'pornstars for wilbon.'

Mr. Fish really really wishes he had thought of that first.
