i dont think it has anything to do with the phillies. i thought it was just a catch phrase by steve berthaune.

Everyone knows about Philadelphia's long and painful sport's history. Samuel is grieving over a past that has no future (Saul). And the Lord say fill thine horn and go (to anoint the new king). In other words, the meaning of this passage is that you must forget the past and move forward to enjoy life. Just a guess.
