The Underdogs

I think people think it's funny that I go to a university known for its dominant athletic program but my favorite professional sports teams are the ones that embody the underdogs, the not quite lovable losers. I've been a Philadelphia fan for almost ten years, and I didn't quite get the let down surrounding the sports for a while because the Phillies were good. What did it matter that every other team wasn't so good? The Phillies had just won the World Series and kept making runs, and frankly, I didn't really care about the other teams yet.
