Bingo. I LOVE the city. I miss it dearly. But I would never, ever wear a Giants or Rangers jersey out and about unless I was in Center City during the day. ****, I've even seen people get hassled on South Street in broad daylight.

It's just how Philly is. They love their sports just a bit too much.

I will forever love the architecture of the city, though They preserve their history so much better than New York does.

I'm glad that the non-violent, non-neanderthal Philly fans are doing something about this. Great to see. Probably sick of morons like #28 ruining everything.
