Sports Columnist Quote of the Day

The Inquirer's John Gonzalez, on this ridiculous "the announcers are against us!" attitude:

Here's the thing: NBC isn't biased against Philly. Neither is Fox or ABC or CBS or ESPN. The networks simply don't care whether the teams here win it all or go home early. That clearly irks certain people, though I'm not sure why. Even if every media outlet in the country openly rooted against Philly, would it matter? At the end of the day, when you put on your Eagles PJs, lay your head on your Flyers pillowcase, and turn off your Phillies night light, you sleep just fine, don't you?
I still don't get that- does bias by announcers somehow affect the game? Flyers fans sound like Republicans during the home stretch of the '08 election.

Sad that the Flyers lost the Finals, although they weren't supposed to make it this far anyway. Now the controversy is that some Philly fans booed during the Stanley Cup ceremony, something I sort of saw coming earlier in the day. It's a totally isolated Philly incident, just like beer-drinking kid, vomit guy, Taser Guy 1, Taser Guy 2, etc. etc. etc.
