Who were the ugliest mugs to ever play in Philadelphia? What Philly athletes gave the best performance in film or TV? What are the top area sports bars? Who are the most overrated and underrated players in Philadelphia history? What Philadelphia mortals had “touched-by-God” moments during the game? Who is the most hated rival to Philly teams? Who made the greatest sports exit? Who are the most beautiful women associated with Philly sports? Plus, dozens of lists from Philly legends like Joe Frazier, Ed Snyder, Harry Kalas, Bobby Clarke, Bernard Hopkins, and many more!
