    I heard that now Bin laden is taken care of, the US is diverting all its resources to find the missing puck from Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals last year

    And this national understanding of what it’s really like to be a Phillies fan… That the reputation we have as an unruly and poor fan base is undeserved… That, while incredibly supportive of our teams, we still live in this country and are a part of its national identity… Will be gone tonight, swept beneath the carpet like a warrant dust-bunny. One day is better than nothing, I suppose.

    The headline should have “Philly fans” as opposed to just “Phillies fans”

    I was so swept up with American Pride, that for several moments I forgot I hate the Mets and cheered side by side with both Phillies fans and Mets fans, yes the Fightins may have lost but America won

    Yes, Tom, I’m well aware. But this is a sports site. If we’re going to talk about, it’s going to be in a sports context. It was more of a media commentary than crying about people not liking us. Clearly you missed that.
