Let's get it on!
Toronto - The Blue Jay and his steroids. Look at that thing flexing and showing off the guns. It's no coincidence that the Blue Jay first displayed the jacked-up physique when Roger Clemens was on the team...
Philly - The Phanatic and his Hatfield Dogs. By the looks of the Phanatic, he eats about 10 dogs for every one he shoots out of the cannon.
Advantage - Philly. Hot dogs make you fat, but they don't shrink your nuts.
Ice Cream History
Toronto - Their first commercial batch of ice cream was sold in May 1893.
Philly - Lewis Dubois Bassett began selling his ice cream from a location at 5th & Market Streets in 1885.
Advantage - Philly. Got 'em by 8 years. And given that it is so much colder in Canada, that's a major upset. Also, no one makes "Toronto style" ice cream.
Toronto - Barenaked Ladies.
Philadelphia - The Eagles.
Advantage - Philly. It's not that they are a bad band, but when you go to the Electric Factory expecting naked chicks and you get a bunch of fat Canucks, it's mighty disappointing. It's even more disappointing than the Eagles performances in NFC Championship games.
Toronto - Owens signed with the Buffalo Bills this offseason and the Bills will play a home game in Toronto.
Philadelphia - He played 2004-2005 with the Eagles, which was enough time to have Ray Didinger list him as the 5th best receiver in Eagles history and have the rest of Philadelphia hate him.
Advantage - Toronto. They get to view Owens from afar and if he goes crazy and tries to OD on pills or work out in his driveway, he won't do it in their neighborhood. Also, the Bills suck anyway, so he can't really make them worse.
They Retired His Number?
Toronto - Tony Fernandez.
Philly - Jim Bunning.
Advantage - Philly. No disrespect to Bunning, who retired at number two on the all-time strikeout list, it's just that the Phils are stingy with the retired number thing. The Jays on the other hand... Tony Fernandez was a good player, but c'mon, he wasn't "retired number" good. Once you set the bar low, then everybody will get in. I bet they even retire Roberto Alomar Jr.'s number some day. Wait. They did what?
The numbers never lie, and the city of Philadelphia and the Fightin Phils come out on top again, 4-1. Look for a series sweep because of this...
