This is to the Philadelphia fan. To laud your passion as best I can. Your loyalty is unsurpassed. Be the Fightins in first or last. We come to the park each day, looking forward to another fray. Because we know you’ll be there, we know you really care. You give the opposing pitcher fits because as one loyalist shouts, everybody hits. To be sure in Philly, there might be some boos. Because you passionate fans, like the manager, hate to lose. Your reaction to the action on the field that you impart, spurs us as broadcasters to call the game with enthusiasm and heart. We feel your passion through and through. Philadelphia fans, I love you.
