SHARE Phillies win World Series, you can buy rain on EBay

If you are an ardent follower of “Law & Order”, you’re probably familiar with cui bono. It’s Latin for “as a benefit to who”, and it’s what Jack McCoy asks his ADA just before they realize the murder was actually committed by the victim’s brother. McCoy always gets his man.

So who benefits from the Phillies winning the World Series?

Obviously, those trying to sell rain water from Game 5 at Citizens Bank Park on EBAY.

From EBAY:

You are bidding on rain from the same storm system that brought the game to a screeching halt. It is in the process of being collected (as I write this) not 5 miles away from Citizens Bank Park. It will be contained in a small vial and then sent to you via priority mail. I do not know what size vial or exactly how much you will get but it will be no less than 2 ml. I took a picture of the rain that I have collected thus far in the pan that is sitting on my front steps. That is the only collection unit that I am using so a very limited number of vials will be available & once they are gone, they are gone. Some will laugh but others will covet this tangible piece of history in the making…

The bidding ends on Nov. 3.
