Zoe Strauss: "The Phillies are the WORLD CHAMPIONS OF
BASEBALL. THE WORLD CHAMPIONS OF BASEBALL."
Steven Wells: "No they're not. They're national champions. America is not the world."
-Then an ongoing debate about the "World Champion" status for many, many emails. Of course, SW is right and after a valiant, but failed, attempt to make a claim that Phillies are "World Champions" I must openly acknowledge that Phillies are "World Series Champions" and not "World Champions" and modify my language accordingly.
The last presidential election ended the debate-
ZS: "USA is now World Champs of president electing!"
SW: "Yes you are."
"Let's get this situation sorted out!
We're so polite
It makes me want to shout
We waive the everything we want
An' take the nothing we already have
An' I'm waiting on hold
For something to blow ..."
