Occasional Observation #186

Observing the intense enthusiasm displayed by the Philadelphia Phillies’ fans, and listening to their at times deafening din as their team wiped the floor with the Houston Astros, 7-0, I actually started to feel sorry for Houston. For them to enter the Phillies’ stadium is a bit like a Roman gladiator entering the arena. Neither can be sure they will leave alive.

If Houston doesn’t win at least one of the next two games, it will not be leaving Philadelphia alive, so to speak. As one of the many colorful placards in the stadium proclaimed, “Houston, we have a problem.” Indeed.

Who’d have thunk it?
