Show me another city where locals who go on to become big sports stars so unabashedly profess their love for the hometown teams. It simply doesn’t happen.
The Angels held a press conference for Mike Trout TO TALK ABOUT THE EAGLES today:
The #Angels have scheduled a conference call for Mike Trout so they can accommodate all the requests for Trout to talk about … the Philadelphia Eagles.

Trout, apparently, gave his prediction (a good one), and made news with it:

Meanwhile, Kyle Lowry is firing a missile into my love (platonic) organ. First taking a screenshot of my Tweet and posting it on his IG:
And yesterday he did a press conference where he, too, took exclusively Eagles questions:

Bless him. Bless his little Blue and White and Green and Silver soul.
This is what’s best about the Philly fan base. Really rich and famous people leave here and then can’t help coming back and wearing their fandom like a badge of honor. You don’t get this stuff elsewhere.
