Man, where the hell were the copy editors?
The paper made a correction on Tuesday, desperate to change the fate of the already doomed Phillies:
So with this little blurb, I plead to you, baseball deity of all things diamond: Forgive our insolence. We really didn't mean it.
We already have the Curse of Billy Penn. The Phillies haven't even sniffed the Fall Classic since I was 7 years old when Super Nintendo was the coolest thing ever.
I really don't want to wait another 14 years.
Naturally the Phillies lost their first playoff game in years 4-2, with Rollins, Howard and Utley all going hitless. At least you know who to blame Phillies fans.
