Rockies fan is asked what Philadelphia’s nickname is on the big screen, fails miserably
During last night’s Phillies game, a Rockies fan was asked one simple question…what is the city of Philadelphia nicknamed? Here were his three options.
What is the city of Philadelphia nicknamed?
- The City of Brotherly Love
- The City of Fountains
- The Liberty City
The Rockies fan picked C. He went with “The Liberty City” as the nickname for Philadelphia.
The first thing I thought of when I heard the third option was Grand Theft Auto. Liberty City was in GTA for many years, being featured as a remake of New York City.
Apparently, the “City of Fountains” is in Kansas City, Missouri. I had absolutely no clue that was even a thing, but apparently, there are more than 200 fountains in Kansas City.
Look, I’m not sure if this was a jab at the city of Philadelphia because the Phillies were in town and the entire thing was a setup like the fake kiss cam videos that circulate across the internet, tricking viewers into believing that some girl is kissing a guy two seats down while her boyfriend is grabbing them food, but honestly, it’s a pretty bad look for this fan regardless.
America is a dying country. Gen Z is a hopeless and lost generation if they can’t select a nickname for the city of Philadelphia, the birthplace of America, the city of fucking independence, the reason why Colorado even exists, on a list of three options that includes “The City of Fountains” as one option.
On the other hand, Denver is a lost city stuck in Mountain Time that believes Nikola Jokic is the best basketball player in the world so really what should we expect from these types of people?
It’s a school night buddy, maybe you should be home reading a history book rather than watching a miserable Rockies team beat up on an even more miserable Phillies team.
Speaking of the Sixers, Happy Game Day…Buy a shirt.
