Why Can't Us? - In case you're scratching your head
With thanks to fyrfitrmedic for the original tidbit a week and a half ago...

On the XM Radio Baseball This Morning: Playoff Edition today, a caller from Delaware chimed in to share his joy for the Fightins. He may have just created the next great new catch phrase, saying, "Boston did it. The White Sox did it. Why can't us? Why can't us." 2008 Philadelphia Phillies: WHY CAN'T US!

The optimistic, if somewhat ungrammatical, battle cry caught on, and was really a rallying point for some Philly fans over the last week. I think they still haven't found "Marty from Delaware," but they're making money selling the t-shirt. :-)

For some reason the phrase just makes me what to beat up the original speaker and everyone else who decided to also use it.
