World Series: Is it in the cards?

In our seemingly never ending quest to find all things Phillies, no matter how esoteric, we found ourselves in Manayunk, stopping at Monica's - as in psychic Monica.

Our mission was to peer into the World Series future and yes, Monica expected us.

"I've been cheating a little, I can't lie, I've been using my abilities to focus in. I'm getting anxious, I want to know the outcome," Monica said.

You didn't have to be a mind reader to figure out Monica wearing a Phillies hat and Phillies nails is a Phillies diehard, but she assured us her prediction is metaphysically objective.

According to Monica, the Phillies win it in 5 games.

"It's a repeat, definitely. I don't think I'm being bias," Monica said.

Alas, the odds makers in Las Vegas are not mystical nor favoring the Phillies.

"It looks like the folks in Vegas are putting the Yankees as a pretty heavy favorite, maybe not so popular among the folks here, but the Yankees are certainly the favorites in Vegas," Chris White of the Turf Club said.

So what about a fortune cookie prediction? They make thousands at a Philadelphia plant. Maybe a cryptic message would reveal all!

The one I opened read, "You are broad minded and socially active."

What on earth does that mean? Hardly the Phils in five.

So back to Monica, we asked her for a little help in the form of a teensy curse on the Yankees.

It's always nice to have some insurance.
