Is Philadelphia really super bummed out?

Asked by dreamwolf (3152points) October 8th, 2011

All over ESPN they are talking about how bummed out Philadelphia is. Is Philadelphia purely just a sports city? Are its fans over reacting? Do you think there is way too much talking and not enough walking in Philadelphia?

What is the kernel of information in this question? Too vague.

Yes, the fans are very sad and surprised by the Phillies loss to the Cardinals. (Especially with the Eagles at 1–3.)

Philadelphia certainly isn’t just a sports city but they do take their sports and their teams very seriously and Philadelphia fans are, well, lets just describe them as “vocal” to be nice.

They should be, because they were hoping that they could boo the Phillies all the way to and including the World Series. ;-)

Even though they still have the Eagles to boo, there’s a chance that they might not get to boo the 76ers.

@gailcalled Sorry you got to be a sports geek for this question.

Ah. I did live in Philly for fourteen years and vaguely remember (in 1974) an enormous racket heard in East Falls/Germantown from Center City. The Flyers had won the Stanley Cup and the entire area erupted. I can recall wondering what had happened as the uproar went on for a long time.

@gailcalled I think of Philly as die hard sports fans for some reason, maybe its because I live in San Diego home of the fairweather fan.
