So, which history will repeat itself?

Having clinically finished off Milwaukee the Phighting Phils have made it to the National League Championship Series to meet their nemesis of the 1970's, the LA Dodgers. We lost to them twice in '77 and '78 only to get our revenge a quarter of a century ago in that glorious year of 1983. The back to back losses in the seventies were made worse by the fact that I often used to drink in a bar run by Tommy Lasorda's brothers; who were not bashful about gloating.
