Three's a Company

What a time to be a Philadelphia sports fan. The Sixers leading the Magic in the playoffs, the Flyers still alive in the playoffs, and the defending champion Phillies starting to find their groove. Every time you turn on the television there is a game on. These three teams are dwarfing the NFL draft which is a hard thing to do in town that bleeds green for the Eagles. Just last night the Phillies scored seven in the ninth to come back and beat the Marlins and thirty minutes later Thadius Young is hitting a shot over Dwight Howard to put the Sixers ahead for good. Having so many teams in contention for a chapionship run in late April is a rare thing. How many cities can brag about having a NBA and NHL team still in the playoffs. Besides us, just two, Chicago and Detroit. Win or lose, we have to enjoy this amazing run and when its over, we have to thank our teams for a great run. Plus theres another 147 games for the Phillies.

Hey Pittsburgh, heres the truth, we aren't the worst fans, we're the best. We are the most passionate in the country and you're telling us we're horrible? You're stupiditiy makes me laugh. Let's keep watching the playoffs and see how long before poor little Crosby starts crying.Cry Ovetikin will kick his butt. We'll see about the Steelers next year to. I bet you Rothlethburger has a horrible year. I won't don't you shut your stupid mouth and open your eyes you dumb sh*t.

I also went to Citizens Bank Park in Philly when the Yankees played them and it was really nice.  Lincoln Financial Field is also very nice too, I saw the Eagles play the Giants a couple years back.

That is a pretty good city for sports.  I live in New York and I can't support the Giants or Jets because the fans are so annoying and there are to many of them.  I am a Saints fan because my father was one when he was a kid.  The Lakers are my basketball team because my mother was born in California and when I go to visit I always see a Lakers game.  The Yanks are my MLB team because being from New Jersey and living in New York there isn't much choice except for the Mets or Yankees, so again I took who my father likes.  I live about 30 minutes from Yankee Stadium.  The Devils are a team that I grew up near, I live about 30 minutes from Izod Center, where they used to play their games.  I live about 45 from Newark and go see them at the Prudential Center.  I love my teams, but I can't always watch the Saints and Lakers play which is annoying.  I wish I liked teams that were part of the same city, but I can't.  If you lived in New York you would understand how many New York fans there are that all like the same team.  It is too boring.
