Philadelphia Has A Champion

Congrats to the Philadelphia Soul for defeating the San Jose Saber Cats in Arena Bowl XXII.

Arena football is not one of the four major sports, but for a Championship starved city like Philadelphia, this means something. This victory will not satisfy fans desire for a sports championship, but maybe this will pave the way for other Championships.

It’s been 25 years since the Sixers swept the Lakers in the NBA Finals. This Championship drought is the longest for any city with four major sports franchises. Many claim that the city of Philadelphia is unable to win, because of the Curse of Billy Penn.

I was never one to believe in curses, but after watching all of the failures over the years, I have started to become a believer. Hopefully the Eagles, Phillies, Flyers, and Sixers can get their act together and start winning it all. They no longer have the Billy Penn excuse.

Maybe Philadelphia just needed a little Soul to break the curse, and the Championship drought. At least we can hope.
