Well apparently it’s not just a connecticut-based cable sports network that likes to perpetuate the old stories about Philly sports fans. Philly.com had link to this extraordinary piece of lazy journalism on the part of the LA Times. His potential breakdown of the series is also a great example of “homer” sports writing.
Thanks for the insults, T.J. Simer. At least our fan-base doesn’t show for games in the third inning and leave in the sixth. Also, we don’t think we intimidate opposing teams. We know we intimidate opposing teams. Or, after watching us rattle the best pitcher in the Game against the Brewers, are you just worried that we’ll chase another Dodgers pitcher off the mound?
Thanks to a great friend, I’ll be in the stands tonight with the other “thugs” I’ll be sure to tell them what you think of us. Maybe I’ll print our your wonderful little piece and pass it out in the stands – way to pour gasoline on the fire T.J.
