SharonA BS: 'The Turnpike Series' - in PA, too?? (15) RE: BS: 'The Turnpike Series' - in PA, too?? 05 Nov 09


I live in the Philadelphia suburbs, so I can't speak for those in western PA, but I can say that if the shoe had been on the other foot -- if the Series had been between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the NY Yankees, I would have been rooting for the Pirates...

a) In the Series, I typically root for the National League team, whichever it is, since the Phillies are in the National League. IMO, the American League does not play true baseball because of the designated-hitter setup, which violates the whole idea of baseball (where each player plays offense AND defense).

b) Philadelphia sports enthusiasts hate New York teams of any sort. New York is a rival city in many ways, not just in sports.
