Congratulations Tampa Fans

You have successfully completed Part 1 of your application for true baseball fandom. Your team's loss to the Philadelphia Phillies in the World Series has given you your first taste of losing at a high level, falling just short of ultimate success. Yes, we know it hurts. But it's a good hurt. Success followed by failure. That will make ultimate success all the sweeter when it comes.

Now for Part 2 of the application. Put some meat in the seats of that sorry stadium before the month of September next season. You've got an exciting young team that deserves to have more fans at home games than the opposition. Show your support, win or lose. Upon receipt of this portion of the application you'll have earned street cred among the real baseball fans out there.

And now, I leave you with words of wisdom from a life-long Cubs fan - "Wait 'til next year!"
