If you're not a Philly sports fan, just skip this post. You've been warned. It's more or less a love letter to Philly sports (which makes sense with the MLB Playoffs starting today), but I'm going to go ahead an kill two birds with one stone. Also, I don't want to pollute the Buzz with too much Broad Street pride, only because it will piss off all the New York sports fans that basically make up the majority of the BroBible bullpen, besides myself. Bottom line, however, is that Pennsylvania -- with an overwhelming emphasis on the Delaware Valley -- is BroBible's third biggest state in terms of readership, after New York and California. Now that I justified such a blatant fanboy 2-for-1 blog post in my head, here it goes...
1.) It's Always Sunny X Philly Sports Logos
An enterprising graphic designer at Tauntr.com the genius idea of mashing-up Philly sports teams with references from The Best Show On Television, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." Someone is going to laugh all the way to the bank, because I know at least 500 people from Harrisburg to Cherry Hill who'd happily plop down $20 buck for one of these on a t-shirt. One thing, though: I think it's weaksauce they couldn't go for broke and come up with a 76ers one. Sure, they're pretty much irrelevant these days, but I'm fully expecting an episode sometime in the not-so-distant future where Dennis, Mac, and Charlie to play a 3-on-3 streetball game against Allen Iverson, Dr. J, and Moses Malone (or, f*ck it: Barkley). Make it happen, It's Always Sunny.
The Philadelphia Sports Power Hour
Now, here's the really, really good stuff. I wanted to punch a wall after watching this. Actually, I did. That's how amazing this is. Best thing I've ever watch, ever. EVER. A Philly native living in Chicago named John T. Gallagher created far and away one of the best Philly sports compilations EVER. And, perhaps best of all YOU CAN GET DRUNK TO IT BECAUSE IT'S A POWER HOUR. Yep, just one hour of blissful Philly sports memories, with a Harry Kalas-led"High Hopes" singalong indicating when you can drink. Just the trailer alone -- soundtrack by The Roots and all-- is un-f*cking-believable. Watch it below. I'm going outside to eat a cheesesteak now.
