Losing My Religion

It ain’t easy being a Philly fan these days. I’m a 5 for 5 guy (Eagles, Phillies, Sixers, Flyers, FC Cheesesteaks) but lately, it’s getting harder and harder to root for all the Philadelphia pro teams.

The Flyers continue to tease but disappoint. The Sixers trot out the albatross that is Samuel Dalembert and expect us to keep paying attention. The Eagles have the most arrogant management group in the area, a maddening head coach, and a quarterback that gags harder the bigger the game.

Meanwhile, the Phillies, fresh off a World Series Championship and looking like a sure bet to meet the Red Sox or Yankees in the Fall Classic, have fans that are killing each other in parking lots.

Just Call Me Captain Optimistic

I’m trying to be optimistic. It’s my New Year’s Resolution. I look around at the disaster zone that is Philadelphia sports and I say to myself, there HAS to be something positive that I can take from this mess. I MUST find something to put my energy into. So I’ve made a list of some of the things I’m thankful for in the sporting world of Philadelphia.
