Those Philly Fans Are Such Nice People

And so discreet, too! Especially the ones who use Craigslist ads to offer sex for World Series tickets:

PHILADELPHIA -- A lawyer for a Philadelphia woman charged with offering sex for World Series tickets says she is "a nice lady overcome with Phillies fever."

Lawyer William J. Brennan says Susan Finkelstein might have dropped double entendres in her Craigslist ad but never explicitly offered sex.

Brennan says the 43-year-old University of Pennsylvania graduate student wanted to take her husband to a game between her beloved Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Yankees.

Wow, and she goes to UPenn? That gives a whole new meaning to the word "Quaker."

Have you seen Parking Wars on A&E? It's basically 30 minutes of reasons not to ever visit Philadelphia.

From ESPN

"he leaped out of the dugout and sprinted to the mound in a city where October legends are born."

puke puke puke. What the hell am I just bitter or is ESPN writing a romance novel?

Hahaha For real? How sad. What has Philadelphia come to?

Aw shucks. Come on now, you know one fan does not mirror a whole city!

And Todd, Philly is very walkable. You don't need to drive. But if you must, we have tips for you at:

Get the anti-virus, SoSG has been invaded by Filly-ites.

Did this lady even think about contacting Steve Phillips before placing her ad?

caroline said...

@RBNLAW - not an ad, it's just I want to pipe up when someone views parking as a detriment to coming to visit Philadelphia.

(Sorry, I should have made it clear that I work for Philly Tourism - usually that automatically shows up as my name when I comment - I'm usually quite clear on that.)

I agree, caroline, Philadelphia is a beautiful city . . . FOR ME TO PUKE ON!

It's the day after and I still can't believe I found myself rooting for the Phils.

Maybe I should banish myself to Sons of Steve Carlton until whatever the hell this is wears off.

I love Philadelphia. I also love hemorrhoids, sour milk, and the BCS system.

all this from a town where the greatest sports hero is a fictional movie character

rbnlaw said...

Poor caroline. She stumbled into the hive of scum and villainy. . .as far as a Filly fan may be concerned.

I, for one, hope to visit Philadelphia someday and enjoy its warm sense of brotherhood and partake of its local cuisine.

I also hope to have a root canal without anesthetic one day as well.

43 years old is hardly worth some world series tickets.
