I guess we now know the answer.
Would the Phillies winning the World Series (and ending the the city's long title drought) make losses by the city's other teams any less painful? The answer is...it does not.
Yesterday's loss hurt as much, if not more, than the Eagles' other championship game losses. For this fan it is painful to watch highlight shows, read the sports section, listen to the radio shows, or talk about the game today.
And it sucks even worse that we fans care more than the smiling Samuel and the chest-bumping Buckhalter!
