You Were Expecting Someone Else?

News Item: GQ Names Eagles, Phillies "Worst Sports Fans in America"

I wouldn't call this accurate, because the "worst sports fans" are the ones who don't care, don't show up, and/or don't exist. Florida Marlins, you're the real #1!

Then again, I agree with Craig Calcaterra:

But before you get worked up, Phillies fans, understand that this is a giant troll.  The editors at GQ have no strong feelings about this list in general or the fans in Philadelphia in particular.  They sat down and said “what will piss people off and get them clicking,” and they came up with this. The fact that it’s in slide show form is the giveaway. They just want to crank you up and get you sending the link around.
I'm already excited for the sports talk screaming tonight.
