My only connection to Philadelphia is that I was born there. I figure I might as well root for the Phighting Phils and show some birthtown pride. They've already gotten to Smoltz (4 runs in the 1st) and I really, really hate the Braves. There's also the matter of San Diego. Don't care much for the Pads myself, but I have totally sweet seats for NLDS Game 1. I wouldn't mind going to that game or charging Mets fans obscene amounts of money to buy the tickets off me. I'm also rootin' for the Brewers, mostly because of the incessant whining of Cubs fans, but also because I love the Brewers' young team. Ditto for the Rockies! For some reason, I don't feel the same love for Arizona. Maybe its because they're going to the playoffs with a negative run differential, while we had to stay at home in October (last year) with a positive run differential!
