Really, one World Series win in twenty-eight years is pretty close to average; over the last twenty-eight years there have been between twenty-six and thirty teams in Major League Baseball, so the average team should have won the World Series about once in that time span.
Still, this blog congratulates the Philadelphia Phillies on their winning the World Series in five and a third games. Not that any of them are reading it.
(If I cared about sports other than baseball, things would be different; Philadelphia has four major professional sports teams, and until last night none of them had won the championship of their sport since the 1983 Sixers; that's about 100 sports seasons without a championship, which is noteworthy. At that time I was a small ball of undifferentiated cells. As was Cole Hamels.)
