Car Bomb spoke with the Chicago Sun Times this week. Not surprisingly, he talked a bit about his time in Philadelphia:
Is the Philly media as tough as they say it is?
Yeah. It’s ridiculous. . . . If you lose, people look for excuses, and they nitpick. They make stories out of nothing. It’s unfortunate. That’s just the way it is. It’s kind of their culture. People are kind of outspoken and rude.
This comes from the professional hockey player who once Tweeted about sticking his fingers in daddy's little girl. Perhaps his definition of the word differs from ours.
He's not entirely incorrect, however. Fans (and bloggers?) are "rude," but that's because they (we?) care. Reporters are rude because they have a job to do, though I'd argue some of the older beat writers can be dicks at times… oh, hello, Tim Panaccio:
