A Fight Broke Out at the Christmas Village Tree Lighting Ceremony in Love Park Tonight

Voila_Capture741Christmas time. A time of cheer, a time of joy, a time to celebrate family, friends AND THAT FUCKING DOUCHEBAG NEXT TO YOU WITH THE GANG TATTOOS.

A fight broke out at the Christmas tree lighting in Love Park this evening. Mayor Nutter and other dignitaries were on-hand and so, too, was FOX Philly, whose cameras* captured a mild fracas just before the tree was lit:

Great. Now not only are we the city that threw snowballs at Santa that one time 40 years ago… but we’re also going to be the city whose inhabitants beat the shit out of each other at communal and joyous holiday gatherings. And to make matters worse, FOX couldn’t even make it through a 90-second live hit – about the fight – without a union member protesting (AT A CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING CEREMONY!) city contracts. It’s always sunny here.

*I absolutely LOVE “Silver Bells” being sung in the background just as FOX goes to Chris O’Connell to report on a melee.

        “But i mean, can anybody honestly say that they are surprised by this? This is the city, after all, which notoriously pelted Santa with snowballs. Hurr durr!!!” Man, I could probably get a job writing for the lame stream media for real. Kyle, do you need another writer for this blog? Maybe give me a trial run where i pen a couple pieces for free so you could get an idea of how well I write. Course i would need a couple weeks before i could start, I have final exams to study for at the moment, My pieces would focus ,more on the sports aspect of things, like game previews and recaps. Let me know what you think. Love the blog btw. Email me on the email i provided, thaats my legit email bud. I am serious about this too.

  2. Haha, those are some Kenzo bitches right dere

  3. Haha just like “the Philly drunk” said here we go again! I’m gonna call my boy who lives in Seattle and I bet it makes the news there. they love when we act up as Philadelphians ha! meanwhile stuff like this happens everywhere but u never hear about it

  4. I’ll put money on it being someone from Jersey. It’s almost always someone from Jersey giving Philly its bad rep.

    • guess u just another dumb broke phiily educaded bastard dirty jersey was built from philly pride that wanted better then this same old bullshit

  5. The union protest sign is just the perfect icing on this layer cake. Liberal Utopia.

  6. Must have been caused by the Denver Broncos hat. That dude know where he is?

  7. Unions drive jobs to the South. They don’t preserve jobs, they keep their members unemployed. Econ101, google it.

    • Corporate greed drives jobs to the South. They don’t preserve jobs, they keep their CEOS retired with golden parachutes. ECON 101, google it.

      • i am a union member. i will admit that my union, like all unions, does protect a few bad apples with its umbrella-like coverage. this includes people that otherwise would need to go. however, they still protect a tree that consists of many honest and hard-working individuals from the greedy and evil grasps of management. if it werent for unions, management in this country would have all work environments be draconian-like and those who clamor for de-unionization would be the first to cry for their return.

        anyway, back to the original subject, these POS should be ashamed of themselves! can they not take even a 30 minute break from behaving like animals?!?! it is a christmas tree lighting during what is supposed to be a joyous season and yet they still “have to keep it real.” the sad thing is about i bet it was over something as simple as a scuffed sneaker. pathetic.

        • Actually there are now gov’t entities which regulate just how draconian a work environment is allowed to be anymore. Unions in today’s day and age pull money from your pay, and do little for it’s members but drive manufacturing jobs not just south, but south of the border. Get any Reeses cups made in Mexico lately? I have. Unions push salaries to the breaking point until the company can no longer be competitive in the modern market and protect bad employees. See Hostess.See Hershey chocolate.

    Oh how I miss the good old days of love park,when at 3:00am you could get a nice BJ.

  9. Delco made another one of those bus trips

  10. When are you people going to start policing you own? Can’t even have a tree lighting without you people having a fight.

  11. This is why I don’t do appearances in philly anymore. You’re all a bunch of angry fucking elves.

  12. Probably fighting over and arctic splash.

    Kyle, people are posting about unions like the Taft-Hartley act just passed. Fix your site.

  14. White Boys with that stupid overly detailed, fade thing, pipe cleaner side burns that connect to a half ass goatee. The worst people on earth.
