Top 10 takeaways from the Phillies clinching a playoff berth

10) It's not technically true that this happened on the day they signed Cliff Lee

9) It's fitting that it happened in Houston, since Ed Wade has been such a consistent help to the team over the years

8) When you've made the postseason in five straight years, you really don't get too excited about these things

7) Some of the younger players might have actually noticed

6) Since Old Time Phillies Fan remembers 1964, this matters a lot to a portion of the fan base

5) If they do this for another consecutive decade, they will finally be even with the Braves

4) With 16 games left in the regular season, the team can now finally relax and have some fun out there

3) Maybe now, the team will finally draw some fans, and get some of their fans to travel to see them

2) Real Phillies Fans, of course, are convinced this is just the precursor to immense disappointment

1) Not only is this the best era in the history of the franchise to be a fan of the laundry, it's also the second through fifth best eras in the history of the franchise
