A bunch of SNY guys sat down with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on some show – who cares – to talk about this whole Tug McGraw thing, because news cycles.
And Christie opened his mouth:
“The Phillies suck,” said the politician who had a 21 percent approval rating in his own state in October and, by the way, runs a state a ton of Phillies fans call home. “They’re from Philadelphia, they’re an awful team, they’re an angry, bitter fanbase, and it’s not safe for civilized people to go to Citizens Bank Park if you want to root for the other team.
“Ya gotta believe what? Ya gotta believe we’re awful people, that’s what ya gotta believe.”
Later, former Phillies beat writer Andy Martino, who once called Philly fans among “the most knowledgeable fans” in America, trashed the Phillies fanbase, calling us “ill-informed and angry.”
I don’t know. Sounds like they’re the angry, bitter, ill-informed people.
