They are only passionate when their teams are winning. Most of them are fair weather fans and annoyances

Yup. The players even admit to this.

All of them are annoyances. I would only go to Philadelphia if they removed the Philadelphians from the city for my visit.

They are about as fair-weathered as it gets, T. The only time they show passion is when they're pelting an opposing team player or Santie Claus with snowballs.

Personally, I like the Eagles and if the Saints don't win the NFCC, I'll be pulling for them if they make it to the big game. I can't stomach their fans, but I like the team and Reid.

It would be really nice to see the Pirates win a world series or even have a winning record for once

I live near Philly and grew up watching the Phillies and Eagles (not an Eagles fan, but they were always on TV)...having been around Philly fans my whole life I can tell you they are a little strange. They ARE passionate in their own way. Although they might SEEM like bandwagon fans to those outside the media they always show up at the Stadium. Through most of the early part of this decade this Phillies were miserable and their front office was known for not putting out much effort into bringing talent to the team, but Phillies attendance has always been strong. As for the Eagles, the fans show up...they're just facing the type of frustration we were facing before Bill Cowher finally got a Superbowl victory. The biggest problem with Philly fans is that they get NASTY and OBNOXIOUS when they are losing...something that I've never really seen in any quantity when attending Steelers games.

Nevertheless, I'm mighty proud to say that PA has really stepped up alot these pass years in the sports world. I grew up in PA and now live in Ohio. I'm still a PA boy at heart. Go PSU, go Stillers, go Pens!
