Last year I carved a pumpkin in honor of the Boston Red Sox, the home team of my childhood who won the 2007 World Series. Needless to say, there were some unhappy Yankees fans on my porch. This year, my adopted home town of Philadelphia took the World Series title, and the resulting pumpkin was far more universally popular. The Phillies were the first Philadelphia team to win ANY national championship since 1983, and the celebratory parade was on the same day as Halloween, so the fans just went wild for this design.
