(Hopefully) good sports essays and observations for good sports by a guy who tries (and can sometimes fail) to be a good sport.

Winston Churchill and the Philadelphia Phillies

"We shall fight them in the streets. . . we shall fight them in the hills. . . we shall never surrender."

They don't call them the "Fightin' Phillies" for nothing.

Two outs, bottom of the ninth, and Jimmy Rollins was up, patient, cool, collected.

Only the third game-ending hit with two outs in the bottom of the ninth in NL post-season history. The others: Kirk Gibson and Cookie Lavagetto.

Great drama in South Philadelphia last night.
