Burn it to the Effing Ground

None of us are pleased about this. Seeing Philly fans happy, with something to celebrate is … well … it’s something I’ve actually never witnessed in my lifetime. But I know I don’t like it. Not one bit. So, if you’re like me, and you have hate in your heart, let it out. While the rest of the sporting corner of the internet is joyously taking the Phillies balls deep (I mean, really? and really?), consider this your therapeutic little retreat. We’re in the trust tree and nothing said in the comments section is too vulgar, angry or bitter.

Also, if you’re like most of my friends and honestly had no idea the Phillies clinched the World Series last night, you’re probably all “WTF?” right now. Let me relate this to your lives: The city of Philadephia won a championship. You hate them. Proceed.

  1. Who the fuck thinks more suspended games would be a good idea? Honestly?

    And yes, this blows. If Cole Hamels wasn’t so gorgeous, I’d be really upset.

  2. I used some pretty reprehensible language last night when describing my feelings about Philly fans to a Philly fan. It didn’t help that the Wiz looked fucking terrible against a pathetic New Jersey team and got smoked by none other than Jarvis Hayes. What a terrible night. The Skins better win on Monday or I’m picking a fight with the first Eagles jersey I see. You’ll know it’s me b/c I’ll be the guy at Bailey’s (ugh) sitting in front to the left w/ bloody knuckles standing over a guy, appropriately striking a post-hit Sean Taylor pose in my ST jersey.

  3. On the plus side, I can now hate Philly fans for being self-righteous douchebags as well as self-pitying douchebags. At least a 4-1 series win forestalled the abortion that is November baseball. And, like Jamie said, the Iggles still haven’t won jack.

  4. Everything about Philly sports pretty much sucks, though we can take solace in the fact that the Eagles will never win the Super Bowl. Never.

    About the thing that Philly has over DC are its strip clubs. In that department, they are in the Super Bowl while DC is still playing Pop Warner. Don’t even try to argue that one.

  5. My friend last night asked me if at least I could appreciate the Phillies winning because they have a more dedicated fanbase.

    Me: “No, I fucking hate everything Philadelphia.”

    Friend: “But come on, Tampa? Their fans suck.”

    Me: “I don’t care. If Satan fielded a team and they played Philly, I would root for Satan.”

  6. Nothing pisses me off more than the “our fanbase rulz, their’s sux” argument. Wow, the team that’s been around 100+ years has a larger number of dedicated fans than the one that’s been around a decade? Well, if that’s the case, then shit, they totally deserve it more.

  7. I refuse to give anything about philthy philly props over DC. Strip clubs and cheese steaks are still better here.

    You know why? B/c they’re not in Philly.

    Anything good, pleasant or enjoyable is divided by 10 when it’s happening in Philly.

  8. Wow, Enrico. I mean, I was blown away by how clever that line was when Utley delivered to thousands of douchebags, but it’s taken on a whole new level of originality now that you’ve repeated it here in the comments section of a blog three days later. Well played, sir.
