Game 5: t-minus 42 minutes and counting

Game 5 is upon us, less than one hour away. After an incredible Game 4, the Phillies are obviously looking to wrap up the series tonight, and beat the Dodgers in Game 5 of the NLCS for the second consecutive year. They don't want to go back to LA.

We are watching an amazing team. Every time it seems impossible that they could make yet another miraculous comeback, they defy all odds and logic. Jimmy Rollins is the man, plain and simple.

Cole Hamels is the obvious key to tonight's game. The Phillies need him to be the Cole of old if they are to win the World Series. A great start from him tonight would be a step in the right direction. If LA can beat him, it will give them a lift while discouraging Hamels if he has another average outing. Hopefully Cole can lead us past the Padilla Flotilla, right into the World Series. Clinching tonight, at home, would be huge. Here we go!!
