In 2009, I used to drive to Citizens Bank Park screaming to myself or, alternately, no one in-particular, “THE WORLD FUCKING CHAMPIONS ARE IN TOWN!” I did this all season, virtually every game I went to. Because after all, the WFC were, in fact, in town.
Well, once again, the champs reside in (the) Philly (area), and they are making their return as we speak, allowing me to say, rather obnoxiously but with great pride, THE CHAMPIONS ARE ON THEIR WAY!
The celebration at Villanova Stadium has been pushed back to 5:30 because their flight was delayed (probably because of that pesky double TV timeout).
Fun fact: Quite a few charter flights from Houston to Philly today. Looks like the whole Nova Nation is making its triumphant return.
