Mbo - your so right, the magic is never gone. The names have changed and so has the equipment, but when the Marlins won the World Series brought as much joy to me as when the Brooklyn Dodgers, them loveable bums, won their only series. We were on the Aircraft Carrier Ticonderoga in the Atlantic when they finally won. The entire ship went absolutely stark raving crazy. In the middle of Flight operations while landing planes, we swabbies were dancing on the flight deck. They had to wave off operations for 10 minutes to bring order back to the ship to continue landing operations. But believe me that magic is still felt today when your home town team wins it all. That is unless your a Yankee fan.
