City of Brotherly Love? Um, no
Sports Business Daily asked its readers earlier this month to identify the “toughest sports facilities for fans of the visiting team.’’
The poll was unscientific, but the results sound about right.
NFL: Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field.
MLB: Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park.
NHL: Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center.
The only major sport in which the City of Brotherly Love did not rank first – or last, depending on how you look at it – was pro basketball, in which the Celtics’ TD Garden was rated toughest. (Madison Square Garden finished second.)
Did I mention I married a woman from Philadelphia? What can I say? I'm brave.
