I respect the heck out of the Phillies for winning the World Series. It was a tough pill to swallow, but they deserved it and congrats to them. Still, Phillies fans felt the need to boo.
Come on now, Philly. You just won the World Series, your first title in over two decades. Celebrate, cheer, be happy!
But when they announced commissioner Bud Selig, the owner of their own team, and the Tampa Bay Rays, they were all resoundingly booed by the crowd. Selig, maybe I can understand. Probably dealing with the weather and all that baggage. The Rays, too, I can be OK with. You did just beat them in five games, and it was a good, fun and competitive series.
But the owner?! Your team, his team, just won the World Series. You're the best team in the league, mostly due to his money and decisions. Yes, the GM does a lot, but who do you think puts him in his position?
Come on, Philly fans. At least cheer for your own team, own organization, and maybe give a hand to the other team.
