Maybe I'll Give the Phillies a Pass This Round

It's my duty as a Mets fan to root against the Philadelphia Phillies. Hence, my support for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Championship Series.

But over the weekend, Philly's hockey fans really came through in a big way. Sarah Palin was pallin' around with the Philadelphia Flyers management and dropped the ceremonial first puck. The Philadelphia Flyer faithful booed the shit out of her.

Oh, Flyers fans. I sure am glad that your booing wasn't deterred by the presence of Palin's pregnant daughter, or by that other little girl who likes to lick her brother's hair. After all, they were pallin' around with Sarah Palin.

Now I'm torn. Do I root for the Phillies because I see eye-to-eye politically with a good chunk of Philadelphia sports fans? I mean, they're the Phillies, the Mets' rivals. But they booed Palin mercilessly. And that's Fan Support I Can Believe In.

They booed her in a swing state. You have to root for them. It's your duty. Ha, I said duty.
