We can't Wait to host the pinstripes down here in Philly. We are foaming at the mouth at the ideas of playing a World Series vs your beloved Yankees.
I want to fist start with the fact that I am not a troll trying to fling turds at New York. As I have been to your city a number of times, and love visiting. Its tons of fun in my book. And I have a lot of respect for the Yankees, its history and an organization who will try to win at any cost. It must be cool knowing your owner is got your back and will pay what ever price to get his man.
That said, we won a championship last year. And it was great, because its been such a long time. But lets be real, we got Tampa last year. This year things are different, and after we clinched, we wanted nothing to do with the Angels. Trust me, every person in Philly want the Yankees. Yes, why would the Phillies fans root for the a more difficult opponent? Because theres a saying, "To be the man, you gotta beat the man". In many people opinion New York is "The Man". So guess what, although we are "The Champs", to many you are "The Man". We want to be "The Man", so its time to man up or go home!
So don't expect any love driving down to Philly during halloween, or during the same day we host your Giantsfor first place earlier that day. There is a storm coming New York, its a storm of ready, hungry, angry, ready to attack Phillies fans, as Citezens Park is not a place for blue this week end. As the chants have already began, "Bring on the Bronx", we are waiting, the question is, Are you ready for this?
In all seriousness, we are excited for the game. And want to show the world who we are. How do you guys feel about the game? Dont' let your homerism show, would you have rathered the Dodgers of ther Phillies? Whats your take on this series? Are you loving it like we are loving it? Heck, in my opinion, We are the man, and like I wrote earlier, "To be the man, you got the beat the man", we are the champs, and you have something to prove, not us. Whats your honest take, I live this stuff, so lets have fun with this.
