Another Sign that Philadelphia Area Fans are Tough

Hard to believe, but. . .

I was at the opening day festivities for our local little league, a very nice affair that touched all the right bases. The emcee introduced every team and its coaches. All went well, but there was just one wrinkle.

Some of the leagues are populated with teams named after minor-league teams. But one is populated with teams named after major-league teams. So, when the Yankees were announced, there was (what I hope was good-natured and I think was) booing. Not blood lusty, not vociferous, more like razzing.

But still . . .

The one thing that you can say about Philadelphia area fans is that they're not apathetic. They have opinions -- and some times multiple opinions -- on everything.
