Philly Fans

Chargers fans didn't even want to sit in their seats during game vs. Eagles

Chargers fans didn't even want to sit in their seats during game vs. Eagles

You may not realize this after Sunday, but Chargers fans are not merely figments of our Philadelphia sports imagination! They really do exist!

And if there is an ounce of sympathy in you, you can't help but feel bad for those Chargers fans who really do care about their team.

Check out this video from the San Diego Union-Tribune, on location at the StubHub Center. It's just the saddest.

OK, the first dude didn't want to sit in his seats that he paid his hard-earned money for because he was getting swallowed whole by screaming (and assumed well-behaved!) Eagles fans. He chose rather to stand in the not-so-upper level and barely see his Chargers play than be drowned out by Eagles fans.

"Why am I up here?"

Poor guy.

Of course Eagles fans were interviewed, too. I mean, how could they not have been, it was like a 26,990-10 ratio.

And of course they had no shame. Bless them.

But still, the video, no matter how elated or depressed it makes you, is worth checking out.

It's reminder that if you think you have it bad, there's almost always a worse-off fan base out there.

Record-breaking crowds flood the Parkway for NFL Draft Experience in Philly

Record-breaking crowds flood the Parkway for NFL Draft Experience in Philly

Who needs the Pope when you have Ginger Jesus?

The NFL Draft Experience joined a long list of wildly popular events in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and all along the Ben Franklin Parkway.

The NFL announced today that nearly 100,000 fans enjoyed the experience, the most ever for a draft-related event, on Day 1 of the draft alone.

Fans flooded into the Experience with people from all across the country in town to support their respective teams. Eagles fans clearly dominated the crowd, however, as you couldn't go a few minutes without hearing an E-A-G-L-E-S chant. 

ESPN also showed some love all night long. SportsCenter's Scott Van Pelt called the story of the night in Philadelphia the city of Philly itself. Adam Schefter called it the "wildest, most raucous crowd in draft history." Jon Gruden called Philly "one of the greatest football towns on the planet."

Aside from not being totally in love with their first pick Derek Barnett upon first blush, Philly fans showed off wonderfully. Even the booing of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell came off as cute.

The Draft Experience is open again on Friday from noon until 11:00 pm and on Saturday from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm. It's free for all fans.

Try the games, avoid the cheesesteaks. And bring some sunscreen (ugh).

Fan at Phillies game makes mad cool one-handed catch while holding little girl

The lone highlight from the Phillies 13-2 loss last night took place in the stands.

That was downright Cliff Lee-vian. Guy didn't even break a sweat and the little girl barely woke up from her nap. I mean, she was at a Phillies game.
