Penn's Phillies

Of course the Phillies were going to win the World Series, and it had to be today.

After all, Billy Penn landed in what's now Chester, Pennsylvania on this day in 1682 to take ownership of the tract of land granted to him by King Charles II, which he called Penn's Woods.

Now that the brim of Billy Penn's hat has been restored to its rightful place above the top of the highest building in the City of Brotherly Love, the curse has been banished. And it was only fitting that it happened on the anniversary of his arrival in Pennsylvania.

Go Phillies!!
