A Big (Ivy) League Perspective

glanvilleEver heard of Doug Glanville?  He put in 9 years in the major leagues, mostly with the Phillies.

Like most former big league ballplayers, he attended an Ivy League college and now writes an occasional column for the New York Times

(What did he just say?)

If you’re looking for a different perspective on this World Series, or just on the sport, he’s worth a read.

    From Glanville’s coumn: “It’s not so much about rooting for the Phillies as it is redemption for the “wait until next year” patience asked of a young fan.”

    Young fan, indeed! Does he not know the origin of “Wait till next year?”

    It was the Dodgers’ (Brooklyn variety) annual lament after losing Series after Series to the Yanks in the late ’40s and early ’50s. The Bums were my team. It still hurts.

    Those years so marked me that, as I have commented before, if the Yankees aren’t playing the Dodgers, I do not deem it a legitimate World Series.
