Longtime readers of The700Level.com are likely familiar with our 2010 blockbuster hit "Lady Gaga Fans Answer the Eagles Starting Quarterback Question," in which we questioned Gaga's Little Monsters prior to her show in Philly on the most pressing sports issue of the day on Broad and Pattison. Eye-wear made of cigarettes is hard to scrape from the memory after all.
With fellow teeny-bopper sensation Justin Bieber in Philadelphia this week to perform a sold-out show at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night, we thought it'd be fun to compare the football knowledge of Gaga and Bieber's respective lunatics fans.
Friend of the Level and CSNPhilly.com Flyers writer Sarah Baicker was kind enough to take the bullet for us this time and mingle with the Beliebers to get the hard questions answered. Baicker, being a hockey geek, had to preempt our VERY IMPORTANT EAGLES QUARTERBACK QUESTION, with a question about the mini scandal of last week when the Biebs put his dirty feet on the Chicago Blackhawks logo. That's a big faux pas in the hockey world apparently.
Then something-or-other about the QB battle in Philly is asked and only like one person seems to know what football is, but she also seems to know Mike Vick has committed a bit more than a faux pas in his past. And of course there's a Chase Utley fan.
Credit to the one young lady when asked if she was upset about Bieber stepping on the Chicago Blackhawks logo who responded with the perfect, "I'm a Flyers fan, so." So who cares. Exactly.
And you have to hand it to the fatherly/creepy looking dude at the very end of the clip who is all, "I just come to check out the moms."
No word on whether or not any Philly locals explained that buckets are not the preferred receptacle of micturition at a Philly sporting venue. There are sinks for that, kid.
[stick tap to Baicker for her mic work and a big shout out to camera bro Ben Seidman for finally getting to fulfill his lifelong dream]

CAMDEN, N.J. -- The first matchup between the oversized point guards will have to wait.
Ben Simmons will not face off against Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is sidelined because of soreness in his right knee, in the Sixers' Saturday evening game against the Bucks. Antetokounmpo is averaging 28.2 points, 10.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.3 blocks per game this season.
That’s not the only absence.
Jerryd Bayless, who had started in place of JJ Redick (leg), is out with a sore left wrist. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot gets the nod at shooting guard.
“It’s another opportunity to show up and make some shots and prove that I can do that,” Luwawu-Cabarrot said at shootaround, also noting he has to play tough defense on Eric Bledsoe (17.7 points per game).
Reigning Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon will also miss the game because of a personal matter, per the Journal Sentinel. Brogdon beat out Joel Embiid and Dario Saric for the award last season.
Markelle Fultz (right shoulder) remains out. He worked on free throws, driving drills, and knocked down a jumper in the portion of shootaround available to the media.
