1. I do not post this message as a way of irritating or stirring up you Broad Streeters, but I am curious as to how much futility you fans will put up with regarding your local sports teams. Its been 23 years since Philadelphia has celebrated a championship in any of the 4 major sports.
2. Let's look at the facts.
Flyers last Stanley Cup - 1975
Phillies last World Series title - 1980
Sixers last championship - 1983
Eagles - well, nothing there, but at least you folks reiterate each week that you can spell EAGLES. E---A---G---L---E---S !!!!
3. Philadephia is perhaps America's greatest sports town. The fans are as passionate as anywhere I've seen. Moreover, I have been in other buildings where the Flyers or Eagles have been the visiting team and their fans make as much noise as the hosts. You've got Donovan McNabb, Ryan Howard, Peter Forsberg, and Allen Iverson. What's the problem?
4. As an avid sports fan, I love it when the Philly teams are competitive. Its great theatre. Plus, it gives me a team to root against. C'mon Brotherly Love owners, get a clue, and return the Philadelphia teams to the glory years of the 70-80s.
