For the record, the blog would like to thank the Phillies for a fabulous season. The blog does not feel "robbed." It admits freely that the team that played better won (which is not the same thing at all as saying that the better team won).
The blog is preparing to to spend a little time over the next few days on the subject of garage-ism. It is therefore posting a photograph taken this past summer of a house on a street just off Country Club Road to remind our faithful readers that, no matter how much the blog rants and raves, garages are a necessary evil.
