125 Years In The Making...

This past weekend, the Philadelphia Phillies became the first professional sports team in any league anywhere to lose 10,000 games.

That's quite the achievement. Think about it: they have gone out and lost an average of 80 games a season for the past 125 years. These days, that's not so horrible, what with the season being 162 games long. But for a long, LONG time, 154 games or fewer was the norm.

Still, one has to tip the cap to the Phils. You don't get to lose that many games without doing something right! So, in honor of their record, I present them with this:

Ow.  Ow ow ow.  Owtch.  Ow.  Oof.

Why, yes, I AM a Cubs fan, why do you ask?

1 Yeah, 10,000 losses... they won the World Series. Seriously, when you're one of the oldest professional baseball teams... you're going to get to 10,000 losses sooner or later.
