Epic. This is far superior to any running commentary post/article that Bill Simmons has ever written. More of these logs, please...

As someone who moved to Philly from Boston in 1995, it took me a while to become a Phillies fan. I didn't really start going to games until 2001. So does that make me a "bandwagon" fan? I mean it's not as though I chose to be raised in Boston (though I was broken hearted over 1993; once in a while, we could pick up 1210 - when it was WOGL-AM - so I could hear Harry, Whitey, and Andy). I think there are some valid points made here, though I don't agree with every single point. I think a lot of people will continue to cling to 2008 because it was the first major league championship for Philadelphia since 1983, so I can see where some people are coming from. And, to be honest, I really didn't follow baseball as much between 1994 and 2000 - it wasn't so much because of the Phillies per se, but it was more because of the strike. Took me a while to forgive MLB for cancelling the Series in 1994. Still, it takes a lot of balls to write this column, so hats off...
