This one comes from our “stuff we’re writing about in an attempt to find anything not related to the lockout” department: A new ranking of the worst sports fans in America ranks Philadelphia Eagles fans at the top of the list, which is to say the bottom of the barrel.
Specifically, GQ says Philadelphia Eagles and Phillies fans are tied for the worst.
As the Philadelphia Daily News notes, GQ‘s rankings are highly subjective, and they trot out the tired old stories you’ve already heard, about how Philly fans booed Santa Claus, and how Michael Irvin was treated to a profane barrage as he was carted off the field with a career-ending neck injury.
Florio will be thrilled to know that after Philly fans, the next-worst fan base belongs to the West Virginia Mountaineers. Raiders fans come in fourth.
