Champagne On Ice: The Yankees are up 3-1 in the World Series and are on the brink of winning their 27th World Championship, their first since 2000 when they beat the Mets in 5 games.
Stealing the Show: Johnny Damon stole two bases last ninght in a play that will forever live in Philadelphia infamy. The play was only the 13th time someone has stolen two bases in one inning in a World Series game, the last coming from B.J. Upton last year.
A-Clutch: A-Rod only has two hits in the World Series, but they are pretty big hits. His first was a home-run that closed a 3-0 Phillies lead to 3-2. His second was the go-ahead double in the top of the 9th last night.

Enjoy the game and hopefully the next headline on this blog has will be World Champs.
