So Who's Next?

Even the day after it is still hard to believe...FINALLY...Philadelphia...a Champion!! No longer is there a title drought, no more mentioning 100 seasons, no more wondering when it will be our time. The city, us, have a world champion. We have a parade to go to on Friday!

So now what does a Philly fan complain about?!? Since we have our champion do we give the city's other 3 major sports teams a free pass? Or does the taste of victory get you spoiled and you instantly want more?

The first time is always the hardest, right? No more curse, no more thinking that it just can't be done in Philadelphia. The Phillies have raised the performance bar in the city and the other teams must now follow. And is it really unrealistic to think that another championship isn't in store for the city and soon?

The Flyers are returning from a season where they made it all the way to the Eastern Conference Championship. The Sixers signed the league's top free agent after last season's playoff run. And the Eagles, well the parity of the NFL and a stud QB and RB gives them maybe the best chance in the city. We just gotta believe..."why can't us?"

Some come on Eagles, lets make this 1980-81 all over again. Follow the lead of the Phillies and make your run to a championship. Just make sure the overall ending is different than the 1981 and 2005 games because you are now playing in a city of champions.
