If there is anything that gives me a good vibe is the atmosphere and passion of Philadelphia. From the way they support nearly all their sports teams, to the absolutely staggering amount of restaurants. Philly is blue-collar by nature, but people who live there are genuinely Pennsylvanians. You got to love the Pennsylvania hospitality, the openness and the ability to have a small town mentality with a big town cover.
Philly is real, the atmosphere, the down home mantra that nearly everyone displays, the entertainment. But there is literally nothing like Philadelphia Sports. From the Phillies to Eagles, to the Flyers, one thing is sure, Philly loves its sports. You could write an entire blog just on Philly sports. The Big story this year was the redemption of Michael Vick. Philly did not embrace Vick at first, but one thing brought the Philly fans on board. Vick starting doing miraculous things on the football field and won games that they would have otherwise lost.
What are you going to do? Continue be a hater or give a guy like Mike Vick props for how he rehabilitated himself on the field and off. Philly loves it sports and they roots for underdogs. So goes the story of how they accepted and embraced Mike Vick.
The Vick story was the highlight of the year. The Flyers and Phillies both made miraculous runs and the Sixers well, were just the Sixers. Thanks Philadelphia for being real.
