Should Rockies Fans Know Philadelphia is Nicknamed the City of Brotherly Love?

Tuesday night, a Rockies fan had to play trivia where he was asked, “What is the city of Philadelphia nicknamed?”

He picked C according to The Athletic’s Matt Gelb:

By the looks of it, this dude seems pretty young and probably hasn’t done much traveling outside of Denver, but I feel like the majority of people know Philly is the City of Brotherly Love. Has he not seen Creed or Invincible? I always thought outsiders love the irony that we’re assholes in a city nicknamed “Brotherly Love.” Plus, Liberty City was the best of the Grand Theft Auto series. Who didn’t play GTA: Liberty City growing up? That’s the only reason I know Miami, Florida is Liberty City. Then again, the Liberty Bell is located in Philadelphia. We are also known as “The Birthplace of America.” I don’t know. What did this kid lose anywa,y a coupon for $2 off a Coors Light?

P.S. For anyone keeping score at home “The City of Fountains” is Kansas City. Don’t say we never taught you anything.

P.P.S. “Why is this news?” – a future Crossing Broad Twitter commenter.

P.P.P.S. Phillies are already down 2-0 and didn’t challenge this Alec Bohm play after he was called out. They didn’t get Jean Segura home after he lead off with a double in the first. Love this team:
