City of Brotherly Love Welcomes Joe Biden!

By John W. Lillpop

For years, Philadelphia has been known as the "City of Brotherly Love," although no one who has ever attended a sporting event in this town can figure out why.

Philly sports fans are notoriously rude and flaky. They boo during the National Anthem, and hiss while God Bless America is being sung.

Philly boo birds spare no one: They love to take on heroes like Santa Claus and his reindeer, Mother's Day, and the latest poster child from Jerry Lewis' campaign against Muscular Dystrophy.

They booed Governor Palin when she dropped the puck to open a hockey game weeks ago.

However, despite all their wrong minded boos, Philly fans finally got one right Sunday night:

They welcomed VP-elect Joe Biden with a lusty chorus of boos at the Eagles-NY Giants football game!

Way to go, Philly! Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Biden!
