They said it couldn't be done.
They said it was damn near impossible.
They pretty much gave the Philadelphia Stars the World Series trophy, even before playing a single playoff game.
Nobody thought the Stars could lose.
Nobody, except the Montreal Shamrocks.
Montreal did the impossible today, completing a 4-game sweep of the heavily favored Philadelphia Stars. Montreal goes to its first ever World Series, where they will meet the winner of the Toledo/Louisville series.
Everybody here at Doubleday World would like to congratulate the Montreal Shamrocks, and team owner Tom Highway, on a job well done.
