The Unimaginable Has Happened

If this isn't a sign that the earth is about to blowup then I don't know what is...

The Philadelphia Phillies Have Won The World Series

[UPDATE - 10:35a] This is Philadelphia's first major sports championship in 25 years. The curse has been lifted.
"A scream of triumph decades in the making burst forth from bars and living rooms across Philadelphia [and other cities across the country -ed.] last night as the Phillies won their first World Series in 28 years.

Citizens Bank Park trembled beneath the feet of 46,000 ecstatic fans. Teeming masses of humanity instantly seized South Broad Street, the intersection of Frankford and Cottman, and Main Street in Manayunk. Center City was so crammed with revelers, it was a challenge even to move." (

EIGN took a road trip down to Philadelphia for the championship parade on Halloween day. Walking down Broad Street with 2 million of my closest friends was an experience I'll never forget. These pictures do no justice in capturing the absolute insanity that was the city that day. We've never experienced anything like it.
