    Only in Philadelphia. Only in Philadelphia.

    Need I say it again?

    How does a potentially-clinching game in the World Series wind up suspended, with tens of thousands of fans streaming out of Citizens Bank Park? Sure, Mother Nature didn't cooperate, but really? This is how Game 5 of the 2008 World Series goes? Or begins? Since it's not over.

    Vai Sikahema and I stood outside the ballpark and just watched in awe.

    No one could have written this script. No one was prepared for this storyline. The first suspended game in World Series history -- Ever!

    I don't know how the 2008 World Series is going to end but I do know one thing for sure: This night will go down as one of the craziest in Philadelphia sports history.

    It was another never-to-forget, controversial, hard to believe, turn of events.
