Motown Philly Back Again-An Illadelph Dedication

Last weekend the The New York Giants played the Philadelphia Eagles in football, resulting in Giants victory.. Even before the Giants won, I was receiving a lot of hostility from the Philly fans. Occasionally, I have conversations with some sports fans and ask them which city do you feel has the worst fans? It always comes down to New York, Philly and Boston. Somehow New York gets eliminated and it's either Boston or Philly.

I used to think that Bostonians were the worst fans but due to the recent success of the Red Sox, Celtics and Patriots, I feel they have simmered down a notch or two.

The Philadelphia Phillies just won the World Series in Baseball and the Philadephia Soul won the championship in Arena Football. I thought that may calm they them down but it hasn't. I guess they still feel incomplete.

Maybe if the Flyers, 76ers or Eagles bring a championship home if that will help.

Fun Fact: Did you know that in the old Eagles Stadium, (Veteran's Stadium) and I think the new one, Lincoln Financial Field, they have a holding cells and and working judge during the games. Keep in mind most courts in the United States are closed on Sundays.

Today, I decided to dedicate this post to the wonderful city of Philadelphia.
This was inspired by Maliek Ball and Brooke Dean.
