Sounds like a good omen? I'll take it!

OK, I was a Kansas Citian in 1980, heartbroken over Phils-Royals, but I’ll take the trade-off: GOP over Democratic idiots.

Phillies winning series is only a good omen if anyone on the presidential ticket has a "P" in their first or last name. It will be almost a lock on the presidency if the last letter in their first name has an "H" because of the alliteration of Philadelphia Phillies.

The only person in the ticket that attaches completely to this good luck omen is Sarah Palin!

“Think about all of those people in swing state Pennsylvania who missed Obama’s infomercial.”

Yeah, I was in Philly until like 3:30 and wanted to be home to Harrisburg to see the game. Heavy traffic, but made it with one stop.

First thing when I turn the TV on and saw the start of Obama infomercial was that it was a terrible choice of days to pick this to do it... I know I switched.

I switched to the news.. then to Fox and watched the Phillie's win!

interesting, and come to think of it, while watching the Obamathon tonight, I couldn’t help but think I was watching a Michael Deaver production. So Phillies win and so does Obama. McCain is no Reagan. Reagan would have never run such a woeful campaign.

I live in Delaware County which went heavily for Kerry in 2004. It is right outside Philly. I drove around today and I am really surprised by the number of McCain signs - even in the minority neighborhoods.

My husband and sons are headed into Philly right now. I couldn’t talk him out of it. It’s been so long since the Phillies have won the World Series. He grew up there (now living in South Jersey), and he’s been waiting for this day for so long. :-)

GRRR!!! Let's see if the hooligans torch Frankford Avenue or North Broad this time.

I should note that I spent a six month period living in the Philadelphia area when I was four. One of those six months was October 1980, when the "Fullies" won the series.

Obama is no Reagan. Reagan wouldn’t pal around with terrorists or advocate wealth redistribution.

Reagan was more than glitzy productions. The American People connected to him and his message and ideas.

Obama is just the glitz.

And yes, McCain’s campaign was woeful — but Obama still cannot shake him off. And in the end, I believe McCain will win if the trends continue.

This ONLY happened because a statue of William Penn was placed on top of the Comcast center.

My wife and I (we grew up in Chester County) are still shocked that the Phils won. FINALLY!!!!!!

My wife and I were in Delco Saturday and I too noticed a lot more McCain signs than I remember seeing of Bush in 04. I also noticed quite a lot of McCain signs in Chesco as well on Sunday when I went out there.

There are a lot of Catholics and seniors in Delco. Let’s hope the Catholics abide by Church teaching.

This place is going absolutely bananas! I was at Game 4 and that was a fantastic baseball experience. Wish I was there tonight, but on the other hand there isn’t anybody going anywhere in Philly right now, so it’s good not to be trapped in South Philadelphia for the night.

WOW! After a decade of buying game-plan season tickets with the hope of a successful post-season, it finally all came together.

Congratulations, Phillies!

Also props to Charlie Manuel.

Man, that's for sure. For the past three years the people around here were laughing at Charlie and making fun of his thick West Virginia accent, and calling him names like "Elmer Befuddled" and "Charlie from Mayberry".

Now the guy is an un-fireable genius. He will be loved in Philly forever. Deservedly.
Charlie is truly an excellent manager.

Nah, only lived there for six months. Have family in Montco and Chester Counties. "Fully"-area inhabitants were the third largest group at Fordham U after New Yorkers and Massholes.

I like what they have done with Center City, and even parts of Northern Liberties. Nevertheless, the rest of the city is a war zone (North Broad, West Philly) or stuck in 1967 (Northeast Philly). I once went on a NE Philly chat group, I felt like I was in a time warp. ;-)

We spent six months living in Turnersville, not too far from the Walt Whitman Bridge on the Jersey side. My dad's office was at the airport (which needed to be privatized yesterday). I remember meeting the Philly Fanatic at Johnny Callison's car dealership.
