Philly Insult Really Compliment

Philadelphia Inquirer columnist John Gonzalez writes that Boston sports fans have become "obnoxious, arrogant" and "condescending" due to our seven titles in nine years. So, this is some kind of insult? I'd say we have the right to be "condescending" to towns that have only episodic lurches at championship fame—like maybe one city that's famous for cheese steaks.

And by the way, Philly fans are obnoxious and arrogant all the time—win or lose. Their troglodyte behavior at the Super Bowl they lost to the Pats was the prime example of that. Come on, these people throw snowballs at Santa! They should talk.

In any event, let's bask in our championship glory years while we can. After all, we could degrade into Philly.
