Either Philadelphia or Boston will be declared 'The Sports Capital of the World'; you know which city we're voting for. (Clockwise from top left: M. Kennedy for GPTMC, courtesy Eagles, Flyers and Sixers)
ESPN wants to declare one city as “The Sports Capital of the World” and Philadelphia and Boston are the two finalists. (Sorry, New York.)
Obviously, the answer is a no-brainer in our opinion, but ESPN wants you to vote to help them determine “Which city is the sports capital of the world?”
It’s awesome to see Philly being recognized as an amazing sports town. Given the recent trend involving our teams, specifically the Phillies and Eagles, pursuing and acquiring top talent, plus the inspiring distinction Phillies fans have received as the most loyal in all of baseball, not to mention the fact that the Sixers and Flyers both made the playoffs already in 2011, with the Phillies and Eagles clearly eying long playoff runs of their own…
Put it all together, and it’s undeniably a pretty great time to be a Philadelphia sports fan(atic).
So if you’re like us, and agree that Philadelphia is “the center of the sports universe,” show Philly some love with your vote on the ESPN poll.
After all, won’t it feel great when ESPN proclaims Philadelphia as The Sports Capital of World…
It will certainly be a nice feather in our cap.
