First, there was the Fightins and Birdland creation — the "City of Brother-Lee-Love."

And now, PhillyPhaithful comes along with the "Thanks Cleveland" mock Chief Wahoo in Phillies colors tee.

Apaprently Philly just can't stop thanking Cleveland for parting was with the reigning AL Cy Young winner, so much so that words just won't do. No! They need to make t-shirts.

I appreciate their being polite about the whole thing. Lee is 5-0 with a 0.68 ERA since heading to the NL, and I never thought so many Phillies fans would be so freakin' thrilled that they didn't land Halladay. They're ebullient about Phifer. Which is nice. I just ask that a portion of the proceeds get donated to the Dolan family so they might procure another young arm that we can then bestow on another team in, say, four or five years down the road.
