BY far the most underrated city on the planet. Everyone always talks shit about us or the eagles and its really getting old. No we are definitely not a wannabe New York either, to all the fags who keep saying that. We have our own accent and slang. Go to philly then check out NY you'll see what i mean.
everyone who still bashes philly is a loser

Probably the most misunderstaood city in the U.S. Those not familiar with the city are usually aware of the Revolutionary history and maybe some unique quirks like cheesesteaks and pretzels. Philadelphia suffers from a bit of red headed stepchild syndrome in that it is a major population center with a unique character but largely goes unrecognized in the American psyche due to the overbearing reputation of nearby New York. The two cities are extremely different and Philadelphians take (sometimes hostile) offense to outsiders who don't bother to understand this. New Yorkers tend to have an arrogance that everything is better in their city. Actually some things are better in Philadelphia. Check it out, just don't mouth off because even though it is the City of Brotherly Love, the inhabitants aren't above giving you a brotherly pop in the mouth.
My girlfriend's folks are coming over to dinner and they have never been to Philadelphia. I guess I'd better get rid of the Schmidt's and invest in some Dockstreet.

A place where you will get beat up if you make fun of the eagles.
Philadelphia has some of the most devoted football fans in the country.

Anyone who complains that Philly is all ghetto has obviously never been there. Yes, a large amount of the city is ghetto, but it's not any different in the Bronx, Brooklyn, or even Manhattan. I go to school in the Bronx and the borough is about 70% ghetto. Even in NY, you just can't escape it. Half of Brooklyn is places like Brownsville, Bed-Stuy, East New York which are no better than North Philly. In fact, I think Philly is a cooler city in many ways. New York is so big, there's no room for city pride or unity among residents. Philly has some cool architecture too and lots of interesting neighborhoods
Jets suck! go eagles

It really is a great city. Its beautiful at night. Even though the city itself is losing tons of population, Its Suburbs such as Montgomery County and Bucks County have been skyrocketing.
Philadelphia is a wonderful town to live in.

AKA Philly/ City of Brotherly Love.
Lemme tell you, I'm born and raised in Philly and maybe the only reason someone has a issue with Philly is 'cus they not from here. In Philly, you can meet some of the greatest people. Rita's is good, the cheesesteaks are great and the pretzels are the best.
Yeah, there's ghetto parts but get over it! If you're not used to ghetto areas then what the f*** are you doin' in Philly? People talk about walking around scared about gettin' mugged, while I can go out without a issue. Here's a hint for wherever you go; If you act like a victim, you're gonna end up a vitcim! It's not that difficult people! Philly might be a lil tough but when the goin' gets tough the tough get goin'! Damnit if you a prissy lil bitch and stay soft then what you learnin'?
And yeah, Philly got black people. What's your point? It's urban! Lots of places are urban and a lot of people WISH they urban! My friend went to Maryland and it was filled with wanna be G's!
We also loyal fans. E-A-G-L-E-S!!! If ya got a problem with it then stick it up your ass 'cus Philly people have NO issue with kickin' your ass about it like some North Carolina girl found out one day.
Philly is diverse too! I have white, black, asian, european and hispanic friends! Everyone you run into is mixed 'cus we don't care what you are! Hell if you mixed you even sexier!
So allow me to sum it all up.
Philly is:
Good food
Tough people
Loyal fans
Ass kickers
Person 1: Yo where u from?
Person 2: I'm from Philadelphia
Person 1: Oh dats wussup! Go eagles!
Person 2: Jea boi! Let's go get sum cheese steaks

"The City of Brotherly Love," where we eat, breathe, and live Eagles. This is the city that cheered Michael Irvin breaking his neck at "The Vet" or the city that brought freedom to America with the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Whether it is clogging our arties with cheesesteaks or stuffing our face with the best food in America, we are "The City of Brotherly Love." We don't care about what other people think about Philly. You can diss our city or call us the worst fans in America, but that is because you're just jealous of our city and our passion for sports.
Rocky, Allen Iverson, and Donovan McNabb are what makes Philadelphia the best city in the world. Even when the odds are against them, they give it their all. That is all we ask of our athletes.
