They Drive Us Crazy

But Philly fans wouldn't want it any other way.

Being a Philadelphia sports fan is never easy.

OK, fine, 2008 was pretty awesome.

But then again, we all see how the Phillies turned out. (Wake me up when Ryan Howard's contract is up.) Being a Philly fan has brought me some of the most fun and exciting moments in my life. It has also made me debate never watching sports again, but either way, it always pulls me back. For example, are you kidding me Gostisbehere?

Just when I was ready to throw in the towel on the Flyers season this human highlight starts breaking records and stealing every Flyers' fans heart one power-play goal at a time. But while this rookie is baffling hockey fans everywhere, reality strikes. The Flyers are still two points out of a playoff spot. While the last time the Flyers were in this position everything worked out (I'm looking at you Brian Boucher) us die-hards can only expect to be let down again. Yes Blackhawks, I still hold a grudge.

The only thing surer than a Gostisbehere highlight is hearing the word "rebuilding" when talking Philly sports. The Sixers have been rebuilding since the Mayflower set sail and the Phillies went from a powerhouse to cellar-dwellers in a few years.

And remember when this was a thing?

Thanks Chip.

But all things aside, I couldn't imagine not being a Philly fan. No matter how many times my TV almost went flying through my window when Bradley Fletcher would get burnt downfield or Ryan Howard would strikeout on a down and out breaking ball. We will always remember Doc Halladay's playoff No-No or "The Miracle at The New Meadowlands", or even when Simon Gagne returned just in time for the Flyers to stun the Bruins in Game 7. Being a Philly fan is in my blood and I wouldn't want it any other way.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
