Sunday night, the Philadelphia Phillies opened their 2009 season (and defense of their World Series title) with a 4-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves. But really, the night was not about the game, but more about celebrating the 2008 season.
There was no shortage of pomp and circumstance Sunday night, with the Phillies running through the stands, hi-fiving fans, and then gathering for the big moment: raising the 2008 World Series Champions banner high into the April night. How did those fans lucky enough to be there honor the occasion?
By fighting, of course.
Don't you ever change, Philadelphia.
