did you know, of the 16 pre-expansion major league baseball clubs, the philadelphia phillies have, hands-down, the worst historical record of all of them? they were the first--and only so far--to "earn" their 10,000th loss, (they got it done all the way back in 2007), and their closest "competitor", the chicago cubs, are still years away from coming close to that sort of ignomy, even though they ARE the cubbies, and even though they're 7 years older as a franchise.
i'd feel more guilty about piling on, but, well, have you met a philadelphia sports fan?
i'll leave you with this link to the nbc new york's list of the top moments in philly sports fan history. (did you know they actually had to finally put a jail INSIDE veterans stadium? who knew!)
