VICTORY is ours!!!

The Philadelphia Phillies won the World Series against Tampa Bay in Game 5 after a 46-HOUR rain delay. Sure the Commissioner of MLB made up the rules as he went along but, hey, we won so I won't get into that.

A few pics (taken from and of the celebration following the final out:

Lidge and Ruiz celebrating.

Pitcher Blanton with the Trophy. Blanton got his first career home run in the World Series!

Utley celebrating in the locker room.

First World Series win for the Phillies since 1980! I wasn't even alive then!! First championship victory for the city of Philadelphia in 25 years!! It doesn't get any better than this :)

Parade in the city at noon tomorrow! Can't wait!

P.S. Suck it Mets!
