I am not a big sports fan and neither is my husband. We don't spend Sunday afternoons or Monday nights watching sports. But I love when one of the teams in Philadelphia is heading to the big game. The Philadelphia Phillies, a baseball team for those of you that don't know, just won the National League East Championship and could be heading to the World Series.
So I become a huge fan. I root for the team and keep my fingers crossed that they win. But it's not about the game or the title. It's about how a winning team galvanizes a city. All of a sudden, we live up to our name of the City of Brotherly Love. We're on the same side, rooting for men that are playing with a ball. Everyone is happy. It dominates the news. Sometimes I even sneak a peek when the game is on TV.
