Sorry to rain on Phillies fans parade (we hope -- fingers crossed) but don't expect too much in World Series Game 2 because the Phils and October 23 don't add up to a good mix.
Halloween might be a week away but 10/23 is a date of bad omens for the Phils.

There is also a rumor that William Penn was born on 10/23/1644, but this isn't really right. Penn was born on 10/14/1644, but his birthday is celebrated on October 24 each year because of the switch to the Gregorian Calendar but even that could be left up to some argument.
In any case, Phils fans who believe in the Curse of Billy Penn better hope that Game 2 doesn't go past midnight.
