Known Boston lover Bill Simmons bends the knee, crowns Philadelphia as America’s true sports city
What a time to be alive for Philly sports fans. The Eagles are the last undefeated team in football, the Phillies are (finally) back in the playoffs, the Sixers are a legitimate title favorite. The Flyers…? Eh, you get the point. To put it simply, America’s true sports town is back in full force.
Philly sports is doing so well right now that one of their biggest critics is waving the white flag. Longtime NBA analyst and Boston diehard Bill Simmons recently went on his podcast to admit defeat and pay homage to the city as it gets ready for what could be a killer sports run.
I’m starting to worry that Philly might be the new Boston. Where the Eagles, they’re gonna be in the mix. I think the Sixers are going to be really good this year, I hate to say it but I like their team. Maybe there’s going to be some sort of Philly thing that’s happening over the next nine months. Starting with the Eagles, moving in with the Sixers. So anyway, there might be a Philly renaissance coming.
Could have lived without the “new Boston” comment, but this will be accepted as a form of surrender from Simmons. Despite his flattering comments, a seat on the bandwagon will NOT be saved for him.
Also, how could he not mention The Fightins?!
Someone tell Bill Simmons that the “Philly renaissance” is already here
Listen here Bill, the Philly sports wave isn’t coming…it’s already here. Led by their trio of Batman’s, the Eagles are taking no prisoners every Sunday. Look at this week for example. The Liberty Line, along with thousands of the Philly faithful, are in Arizona as this is being written for the Bird’s matchup with the Cardinals.
Shoutout Phans of Philly for making the magic happen.
Put the champagne down, we popping that James Harden wine from here on out. The beard is fully healthy once again and is ready for a revenge tour alongside Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey.
Sadly Bill, you’re telling everyone stuff they already know. Whether it’s the NFL or the NBA, everything runs through Broad street.
