So my Yankees will be playing against the Philadelphia Phillies in the World Series starting on Wednesday.
I don’t want to sound mean-spirited, but what kind of stupid name is the Phillies?
The original name of the franchise was the Philadelphia Philadelphias, a name that is quite ridiculous and even worse when said aloud, but is Phillies any better?
Imagine if other major league teams took Philadelphia’s lead and started name their team similarly.
The New York Yorkies.
The Boston Bosties.
The San Diego San Diegoies.
The Yankees should crush the Phillies just on the basis of name alone.
