I am a lifelong Philadelphia resident, meaning that in my 35 years, I have seen a whopping three major championships come through town. I have been following sports here for 25 years, finding the most joy and frustration in cheering for the Flyers. Outside of the four major sports, I follow tennis diligently. My wife is okay knowing that tennis is my mistress. We live in South Philly, only a few blocks from the Sports Complex, with our son, Nicholas, and two cats.
I welcome the chance to interact with similarly passionate Philly fans. The Latin root for “passion,” “passio” means suffering. All Philly sports fans know about suffering!
