Friendly Rivals: How to Wind Up a D.C. Fan
So I was down in Philly for all of the madness/awesomeness of the Union's debut/beat down of D.C. United on Saturday. I've got a couple of different pieces that I'm working on that I'm trying to get out in the next 24 and while looking through some of the video I caught I found one of the funniest moments of the weekend that I didn't feel like waiting to share.
Sons of Ben capo @SOB_Corey is a truly funny S.O.B. But he is also a "diabolical hater" capable of unimaginable trash talk & wind-ups. When you put these two qaulities together it can make for excellent banter with away opposition, particularly when they've stopped by your pre-game party on matchday. Watch the clip above and you'll see what I mean as even the D.C. guys had to crack a smile at a few of his micro-sized banners; sh*t was cold, but sh*t was funny.
But it was all in good fun as the United supporters that ventured into McFadden's were welcomed warmly by the Philly fans (and this RBNY supporter) and everyone had a few laughs at each other's expense. Nice to see that with three I-95 clubs in such close proximity (sorry New England, hope you don't feel left out) that the rivalry can be left in the stands and out of the bars.
