I think FJP gets up every morning and pisses in his own cereal! As a Philly fan, your posts kinda feel like sour grapes. On the subject of you and your happiness, I would just love to hear something positive from/or about you. Life's too short to be this pissed about everything! Cheer up and try to have a good day!

I have respect for people that earn it.
Just another typical Filthadelphia fan crying woe is me and how you aren't the worst sports city in America.
I'm sure there is a Special Olympics kid singing the National Anthem in a week or two that you can go booooo.
I am not crying woe is me. Like I said we have plenty of jackasses here in the Philly region. I am just saying attacking the bad behavior of Philly fans is just tired, lazy and cliche. Because SH*T happens everywhere.
And By the way, since you mentioned the national anthem, quite a few times the Eagles got a blind kid named Timmy to do the national anthem and he brought the house down. A crowd favorite everytime he performed.
We booed the frisbee dogs at halftime, but Timmy got roaring applause.
you like the nationals.... enough said
Now I get it. He's got an excess of Natitude right now and he's gearing it all towards Philly.
Phillies fans hating on the Nats has a lot to do with jealousy. You wish you had our players on your team, but have decimated your farm system to have a really good team for a few years...but that's looking more like a blip on the radar.
The Nats have had more injuries to important players and a similar lack of offense, and are still battling for first in the NL east. The phillies are paying the most and winning the least.
Enjoy your giant contracts and sub-.500 ball. I'll take a loaded farm system and rising stars who'll be under team control for years. #Natitude
Harper will looks awesome in Phillies red and white in a few years
PENN STATE FOREVER
We have Harper under team control until 2018. No secret we probably won't keep him, but a lot can happen between now and then.
Since I can tell you are knew to following baseball I will help you out. This has little to nothing to do with jealousy but more of checking on the younger brother. Perhaps you can equate this to PSU fans wanting updates on Pitt or Rutgers programs. Some times it is just fun to see how other teams and their ridiculous fans are doing. The ONLY 2 players that you have on your team that I would want on mine are Ryan Zimmerman and Strasburg. Don't start cramming Harper down my throat...I know you are taking a month's worth of ball and claiming the Nat's as the beast of the east but I need to see more out of Harp's before I would take him. Congrats on your young stars and while you are bringing up contracts, congrats as well on Jayson Wirth, have fun with that contract...
More injuries to important players??? Perhaps you have heard of Ryan Howard and Chase Utley...better known as the middle of the Phillies line up and possible HOFer's if they can get and remain healthy. The injuries of these 2 stars changes that whole lineup as their is no longer a true clean up hitter on the team.
Sub .500 ball??? In case you are just becoming acquainted with a calendar as well the season is VERY long and a team that won 102 games last year is not all of a sudden going to win half of their games. Enjoy first place for now cause if the Phillies don't take it over the Braves will.
All of this and I am not even a Phillies fan...
The braves did yesterday actually.
I actually gave you an upvote for creativity. Your post couldn't be any further from reality, but I like your moxie!
This is the worst Phillies team I have seen in 6 years, yet still only 5 back.
I've seen an Eagles fan pour beer on a girl wearing a Cowboys uniform before, that was three years ago.
I've seen Phillies fans beat the crap out of a Mets fan in the past few years.
Things like this apply to why Phillies fans as a whole are pretty bad, just a lot of bandwagoners. IMO.

Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
Look, I hear you. I have never denied jackasses exist in Philly. I have witnessed Philly fans act exactly as you have described. But it really and truely happens just about everywhere. To think obnoxious behavior is confined to southeastern PA is inaccurate, and to label Philly sports fas as being the most classless is just lazy and cliche. Plenty of stories come out of other venues that support the fact that jackasses are everywhere.
My initial reapose was to booing Santa Clause. There is not a lazier and more inaccurate statement ever tossed out against us as than that story.
But you guys always go back to, "Eh there are other bad fans out there...."
I'd sooner walk through Wilmington Delaware at 2AM than ride SEPTA as an opposing fan. At least I'd have a chance to run from the assault that would surely follow.
Yes. Every opposing fan here gets his or her ass beat. I ride the subway every day with opposing fans and have never seen one assault. Not that it doesn't happen, it obviously does at some point. But it's not rampant.

Oh, and how about that Sixers season being over last week like you predicted. Did that come true? I haven't seen the scores anywhere.
Who cares about the NBA. Whoopdy-doo I was wrong.
Go back to watching a bunch of people flop on the court and run double-screens for an hour.
So you insult the Phils, then make a prediction about the Sixers completely unprovoked (the thread in question didn't even mention the Sixers or Flyers and you brought up both out of nowhere), end up wrong, then say who cares? Got it.
What i don't understand are people saying philly sports fans are bandwagon fans? i just don't even see where this is coming from. because we boo when our teams don't perform? well we dont want to want crappy sports, you show up and play hard or we're gonna let you hear it. If you arent that great but you work hard, we'll absolutely support you (ex. Lavoy "Big Mac" Allen, Freddy Galvis).
Also come on Nationals fans (yes i know I'm gonna get negged for this), how can you call out Phillies fans for this when you only started showing up a month ago? I respect that you guys are finally getting behind your team, but don't take shots at us. We're the ones that have been filling up your park, giving you the money to spend on people like Werth
Phillies fans are definitely bandwagon fans. Nobody watched when they sucked. I won't argue that. I used to go to empty games at the Vet all the time. Nobody cared before CBP was built. Most of the Phillies fans today couldn't tell you a thing about the Francona days.
Than I dont know what to tell you. I have ridden SEPTA with opposing fans, and no one even looked at them twice. Good natured ribbing? Of course, but even the opposing fans chuckled and knew it was all in fun. You are believing stereotypes and exaggerations, and your posts are continuing to perpetuate them. 99% of opposing fans in Philadelphia have fun, just as 99% of SF fans are fine in Dodger Stadium, just as 99% of Sox fans are fine in Yankee stadium.
There are some people who believe this myth that all oppposing fans get their asses kicked at games. It is nonsense and utter rubbish. We have jackasses, no worse or better than other cities. If you choose to never visit any stadium other than you home team, so be it.
But I am curious...what happened to you personally that you so revile Philly and all its fans?
Or have nbo idea who Lee Elia was. I agree with you. I sat through Bruce Ruffin and Shane Rawley before we finally had 93, then the end of the 90's, you could walk up to the Vet 15 minutes before the game and sit lower bowl down a baseline. Maybe had 10,000. Then CPB, and it became a college hangout.
