Default What is it with Pennsylvania teams winning championships recently?

Steelers win their 6th Super Bowl

Phillies win the World Series, then make it back the following year

Penguins win the Stanley Cup

Eagles make the NFC Championship game starting from the 6th seed, and are making another SB run this year

Really - what is it all of a sudden with all of these Pennsylvania teams making run at championships recently?

Don't forget the Hershey Bears (AHL) who won the Calder Cup again this year (and have won it more than any AHL team). They are the Washington Capitals farm team though. They beat the baby Pens in the 2nd round of the AHL playoffs.

It's definitely been an exciting time though.

I've noticed that too. Guess we just rock at sports here in PA.

As for the Hershey Bears, they're on a roll again this year too. As for the Baby Pens, well, let's just say they could be doing better.

Pittsburgh was pretty successful in college basketball last year as well, being ranked #1 overall at one point in the season and earning a #1 seed in the NCAA tournament....made it to the elite 8 and was beat at the buzzer so theyve had success as well.

A buddy of mine in Pennsylvania told me how the Keystone State is just CRAZY over their Steelers and Eagles(and their college, baseball, basketball, et al teams as well). And I thought Texas sports fans were crazy...

Even though Eagles/Phillies fans may be obnoxious - you have to give them alot of credit, they show alot of passion for their local teams.

Don't worry. Philly will choke in the playoffs this year. Count on that.

Sorry that my Yankees busted the bubble for the Phillies . But I'm a big Philly fan when you guys play the Mets . I hate the Mets !!!!! Looks like with the upgrading the Phillies and Yankees have done so far , I think we will see each other again in October .
