It's On: Philly Announcement to Come Next Week

Celebrate

Somebody put the Yuengling on ice because drinky time may well be upon us. Philly.com is reporting that Feb. 28th will be the day that Illadelphia soccer fans will finally get to party like it's 1999; the league has tentatively marked it down for a press conference to announce the city as the league's 16th team.

And you the party should not be confined to those living along the Delaware River. New York and DC fans should get bent as well for they'll both be gaining a close rival and an even closer road trip destination than they now have. As a fan of the New York club there are two words that get my nuts all riled up about Philly: rail service.

Even better, cheap-ass bus to AC ... hours of drinking and gambling ... bus to Philly.

As a Pittsburgher I love Yuengling but hate Philadelphia. Regardless I will be celebrating this weekend because the team should be a great addition to the league.

Is that supposed to be a photo of Philly? It looks more like NYC. Here's what you may be looking for: http://www1.istockphoto.com/file_thumbview_approve/1937281/2/istockphoto_1937281_fireworks_over_philadelphia.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.istockphoto.com/file_closeup/%3Fid%3D1937281%26refnum%3D1069365&h=380&w=304&sz=40&hl=en&start=6&um=1&tbnid=V-jk-3QpG__d1M:&tbnh=123&tbnw=98&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dphiladelphia%2Bcity%2Bfireworks%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26rlz%3D1B3GGGL_enJP211JP211%26sa%3DN

It is a picture of New York.

The reason is that Philadelphia's skyline is very much representative of the shanty town that it is. mental note: most likely another reason why the daughters of Betsy are teabagging the DCU supporters groups.

And they can't afford fireworks there either.

The Daughters of Betsy? That is truly among the all-time class putdowns (along with 18-1). Why are NY teams so great? Because when you have fans who come up with stuff like that, you get the message: Win or else. :>

Yes it is New York. They had better fireworks than the Philly photo. Sorry cheesesteak eaters.
