So there you have it from a native Philadelphian.
What did you sell?

For the record, I don't even like tastykakes, I think they are horrible. Unnaturally sweet.

Has the murder rate gone down yet?

Knicks fans classy??? thanks for the laugh buddy.

Knicks fans are clowns, and most Ranger fans are Giants and Yankees fans too so your assessment is ridiculous. The one thing I'll give you is all fans of the teams you mentioned know their teams and sports, putting them light years ahead of Philadelphia fans.

I can't believe no one has mentioned our beer yet. Maybe I'm alone here in being a beer fan but this is the best beer city in the country. Portland might have us beat on the brew pubs (we're no slouches there either) but nowhere else can you walk into all about the diviest of bars and expect to find respectable beers on tap. Even the dives have Yuengling.

Within 100 miles of here we have Yards, Philadelphia Brewing Company, Victory, Flying Fish, Sly Fox, Dogfish Head, Stoudts, Troegs, Riverhorse, Flying Dog, Appalachian, Straubs, and Weyerbacher . . . and our great brewpubs like Triumph, Iron Hill, Nodding Head, General Lafayette's, Dock St., Manayunk Brewing, McKenzie's, etc.

Philadelphia makes its case as nation's best beer-drinking city - USATODAY.com
