A four-month pause could not stifle Philadelphia fans’ passion for their teams. They don’t need summer camp, training camp or really any warmup to hit their high notes.
The Phillies, 76ers and Flyers are all playing and providing plenty of fodder for Twitter.
Here are three things that bothered Philadelphia fans most this week and the one thing they actually liked.
1. The Phillies Bullpen
It’s a horrible collection of who-the-heck-are-these guys. The Phillies bullpen ERA as of Aug. 14 is 10.29.
It’s such a disaster, the government is thinking of stepping in.
Phillies’ overall awful play
The Phillies World Series odds at FanDuel online sportsbook at the beginning of the season were +2500. Now they’re +3300.
The Bubble can’t stop the 76ers’ injury woes or gossip
The NBA bubble didn’t come with individual bubble wrap for Simmons and Embiid.
And the one that Philadelphia fans were happy about this week
In the first three games since the NHL’s restart, Flyers goalie Carter Hart stopped 84 of 87 shots for a .966 save percentage.
But even Hart warming Flyers fans’ hearts could already be on life support. He gave up four goals in a 5-0 playoff loss on Friday.
