Mike Tanier offers a fresh take on age-old debates about the legacies of the city's most memorable and controversial athletes, inviting readers to reconsider the reputation and history of Philadelphia fans."
—Tom McAllister, author of Bury Me in My Jersey: A Memoir of My Father, Football, and Philly

This book was purchased as a gift for my Father in Law. Once you are a Philadelphia sports fan, you will always be a Philadelphia sports fan- even if you move to Florida! We all had a chance to look through this book. Just a fun book to have around the house. This book will bring back memories for the Philly sports fan!
