9781480100411: A Snowball's Chance: Philly Fires Back Against The National Media

Philadelphia: The birthplace of our nation, the City of Brotherly Love, cheesesteaks, soft pretzels, Rocky, and...snowballs? That’s right. The national media hardly utters a sentence about Philly’s tough but passionate sports fans without mentioning how Santa Claus was once booed and pelted with snowballs. In fact, it doesn’t seem that anybody outside the Tri-State area can put that story and others to rest, even though this happened over 40 years ago. No matter what transpires, it seems that the national perspective about our sports community is set in stone. It’s almost as if there’s some kind of secret handbook used to perpetuate these negative stereotypes about our fans. Luckily, the guys at Philly2Philly.com managed to get a hold of this handbook with “A Snowball’s Chance,” and we’re firing back. Join us as we debate, discuss and defend some of Philadelphia sports history’s most dubious moments. You’ll read our passionate but fair takes on: The Santa Claus incident—with a first-hand account from Santa himself, Frank Olivo The J.D. Drew incident, from the perspective of broadcasting legend Dan Baker Why Philly fans never recognized the genius of Andy Reid ...and much more! You’ll also hear from: Philadelphia’s athletes who have made the Tri-State area their permanent home Philly’s legendary broadcasting voices Brad Lidge, one of only two Philadelphia Phillies pitchers to close a World Series Championship for the franchise. We’re definitely no angels in Philly, but A Snowball’s Chance will absolutely shed some much needed positive light on perhaps the most notorious and unfairly maligned fan base on the planet. Philly2Philly.com has become one of the most personalized sites in the Philadelphia area. Visit us at www.philly2philly.com Facebook: www.facebook.com/philly2philly Twitter: @philly2philly
