I’m not a big baseball fan. My visits to the stadium in the last 20 years have been solely to watch the fireworks shows on July 4th. However, if you really needed a reason not to watch the Phillies and be glad you aren’t in their region, this is it:
In fact, no team has ever stunk so often as the Phillies, who, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, have lost more games than any professional franchise in any sport. The Phillies are 14 losses from a particular threshold of ignominy ? the 10,000th defeat for a club that has won one lonely World Series title (in 1980) during its 125 years of often dreadful existence.
