Apparently, that bitchly rag GQ had some colorful remarks to make about Philly sports fans. Not to be outdone, our fearless former Governor fired right back at them. I wasn't and still ain't a huge fan of Fast Eddie or his policies, but ya gotta admire his loyalty to his hometown boys.
I've been an Eagles fan for as long as I remember, and although I generally root for the Baltimorons for baseball, the Phillies have always been my closet NL team. Now, I ain't what some people would call a hard-core fan. I can count on my fingers how many baseball games I've been to, and I've only been to one Eagles game. My walls ain't littered with memorabilia, but I got a few trinkets layin' around. I ain't gonna lose sleep if either league has a lockout. There's way too much goin' on in my life to get that wrapped up in how my teams are doin'.
But I will cheer their successes and mourn their losses, casually follow 'em in the papers and on the 'net, and continue to argue 'till I'm blue in the face to them goddamned Yankees and Cowboys fans. I have no problem explorin' the beauty of the games and lettin' them take me to another place for a small period of time. After all, that's what sports are all about.
On a semi-related note... if you're a Phillies fan or just a baseball fan in general, my good friend The Southpaw is worth a daily read as well.
