At the sports desk: congrats to the Phillies

Too bad for the Dodgers, but congrats to the Philadelphia Phillies for being the first team to qualify for this year's World Series.

They've played well this postseason, getting the clutch hits and solid starting pitching.
You have to feel kinda good for Philly fans. Oh, yes, they have kind of bad reputation nationally--they boo a lot, they're hard on their star players, they famously once even booed Santa Claus.

But you know what? You also have to say that they're passionate, they care, and they support their teams. I have no problem with fans like that. I'm sure they're happy today. Let's see now if the Tampa Bay Rays can join them; that would be a great story, too...
