“you guys are the best, we couldn’t have done this without you. and you know, just keep doing what you’re doing because you guys are another player out there on the field with us. the other teams know it when they come in. so keep it going and keep it rough and rowdy. we love you guys.”—brad lidge on phillies fans and home field advantage.

Do you want to see your favorite soccer stars doing “the Rocky” on the art museum steps? How about eating a real Philly cheesesteak, or maybe munching on some Wawa? Ever imagine the entire Spanish National Team on a double decker sightseeing bus, or Schweinsteiger and Podolski on a (bro)romantic ride in a horse drawn carriage? Want to see Landon Donovan’s fivehead in person? Ever wonder if Ronaldo is really that big of a prick bronze? Forget “I want to go to the zoo with Roy”, how about “I want to go to the zoo with Stuart Holden”!
All this and more can come true if you just sign the petition to bring the World Cup to the US in 2018 or 2022!
