Living in the rival city during the World Series can be a very tough experience, especially coming from Philadelphia and living in New York. Everyone is anticipating the last game of the World Series which will decide who the world champion is going to be. The Yankee fans are so dedicated to their team and city. But they are not nearly as passionate as a Philadelphia Phillies fan. You can just imagine the negative energy Yankee fans are going to direct to this single Phillies fan. The two cities already clash: one thinks there superior to the other; one says it has a better culture, but they both are looking forward to the big game. It was 7:00pm. When William's alarm went a ringing it echoed throughout his whole apartment.
