And that's the end of the Tampa Bay Rays, and the 2008 baseball season.

It's a frustrating loss; we had become legitimate Rays fans this playoff season. But perhaps Philadelphia winning a major championship is more fitting. Hell, the city hadn't won anything since 1983 while the Rays weren't created until 1998. To see Tampa win it, no matter how good of a story it would've been, would have felt a little cheap because of its short existence -- kinda like how the Florida Marlins have two friggin' World Series titles.

Not to take anything away from Tampa. Best story, in our opinion, baseball has seen since the Homerun Race of 1998. To go from last-to-first with a tiny budget, homegrown players and the spirit of a college team, is nothing short of spectacular. The Rays will be fun to watch for some time.

But this wasn't Tampa's year. Congrats, Philadelphia. Go eat a fucking cheesesteak and burn down the Liberty Bell. You've waited long enough.

Is the Liberty Bell flammable?

good for Philly, it's been a long time and they put together a good team. I would have preferred the Rays but this is a perfectly acceptable outcome. And I think it's good for old man Moyer to get a ring. And Matt Stairs.
