How cute! Nationals fans vow to fight off the Philly “horde”

Feb 21, 2011, 1:27 PM EDT

Phillies fans AP

I’m talking about drawing a line in the sand, Dude. Across this line, YOU DO NOT … wait, what?  You mean it’s just these two guys?  Ah, never mind.

And there’s a part two. It’s much better. They call Philly fans “the lowest form of humanity” and they call Philly itself “a stinking cesspool.”   If I find their address, Philly fans, I’ll let you know:

    does anyone else find it comical that in the second video he basically plagiarizes the Deceleration of Independence (freedom and equality for all men) which happened to be created and signed in Philadelphia?

    • section138 - Feb 21, 2011 at 1:41 PM

      “Plagiarizes”?? It’s a you tube video, not a fricking dissertation.

      • suckitflorio - Feb 21, 2011 at 1:44 PM

        Sorry, I didn’t know I needed to dumb down my vocabulary for you!

        “Umm does anyone find it comical that he basically “quotes”….” feel better?

    • jpeetey - Feb 21, 2011 at 1:53 PM

      Deceleration of Independence? I thought they were trying to speed the thing up!

      • spudchukar - Feb 21, 2011 at 3:02 PM

        It’s the new right-wing nut slogan.

    • baseballfan16 - Feb 21, 2011 at 3:53 PM

      Yo homes! How does one ‘decelerate’ the Declaration of Independence?

      I’d be very interested in hearing your theories! Hit me up some time!

  2. heyblueyoustink - Feb 21, 2011 at 1:36 PM

    Now because of the fraudulent President’s Day Holiday i’d almost be willing to give them a pass…….however when some folks from a town where some of the lowest forms of parasitic ameoba in the universe congregate and call home……..now come one fellas…..

    And oh yeah, nice ballpark, it’s cool that you pay homage to great players of other teams in that park, which makes a hell of a lot of sense……and that red porch is impressive too…..now if you could only find one or two good socialists to sit in there and root for a tie……

    To you bottomfeeders, I say HA!…..come on up and visit the park this year with that kind of ferverence…..and maybe some of those giant sumo padded outfits so we don’t get blamed for roughing you clowns up too bad

  3. Panda Claus - Feb 21, 2011 at 1:37 PM

    Not all Phillies fans are Eagles fans. And it’s entirely possible not all Eagles fans are lunatics. That differentiation needs to be pointed out.

    Not sure what these guys’ problem is.

    • macjacmccoy - Feb 21, 2011 at 2:04 PM

      true my ex girlfriend is a huge Phillies fan and hates the Eagles. That was a problem. lol.

      • suckitflorio - Feb 21, 2011 at 2:41 PM

        haha! now that’s a worthwhile reply… well done!

  4. rmalmstrom - Feb 21, 2011 at 1:39 PM

    Reminds me of the jail scene in Trading Places. Dude on the left needs to chime in with an intimidating “YEAH!”

  5. Mr. Jason "El Bravo" Heyward - Feb 21, 2011 at 1:39 PM

    It’s going to be tough for those two dudes to buy every seat in the park, but good luck to them.

  6. Jonny 5 - Feb 21, 2011 at 1:42 PM

    LMAO!!!! We will show them we are better than them, that they are better than they think we are.”

    Whaaaaa?

    DC ain’t no summer breeze itself….

    • Old Gator - Feb 21, 2011 at 7:03 PM

      I hear that Gnats fans have just been strafed by Feelie jets disguised as Libyans….

    Homeboy on the right really shouldn’t be calling anyone fat.

    at what point does a person think making this video is a good idea?

  10. akeemdropsdaball - Feb 21, 2011 at 1:58 PM

    Inspiring.

  11. macjacmccoy - Feb 21, 2011 at 2:02 PM

    Do you think they know that the Washington Nationals dont play in Washington the state they play in Washington D.C.? The previous murder capital and the undisputed, reigning, and defending crack capital of the world. Where rape is considered a form of fore play. Nah they probably know there in DC after all thats how there mother met there father.

    • spudchukar - Feb 21, 2011 at 3:07 PM

      Is English a second language in Philadelphia?

    • dolphinphan - Feb 21, 2011 at 3:10 PM

      are we at a point in society that its ok to not know the differences between their, there and they’re?

    • madhatternalice - Feb 22, 2011 at 1:00 PM

      “previous murder capital.” how DARE you lower the number of murders that happen in DC!

      I dunno. Look at the non-player news about both cities.

      Nationals: famous for misspelling their team name on their jerseys.
      Phillies: famous for fans giving beer to kids and fistfights in the stands.

      Yeah, you win, mac. Clearly Philly is the class of baseball.

  12. ahealthyscratch - Feb 21, 2011 at 3:43 PM

    Seriously, as a Phillies fan and a resident of Philadelphia, I cringe when these kind of posts are put up. Not because they aren’t entertaining, but because I know it will drag out a bunch of borderline illiterates who want to defend Philadelphia. Guys, you’re not helping things by spelling “Declaration” wrong and not knowing 7th grade grammar. Stop being so insecure.

    • cur68 - Feb 21, 2011 at 3:55 PM

      Actually I think a healthy dose of insecurity would be better. It takes nards to bash someone for being an illiterate while being illiterate. As a Jays fan (stop snickering, please. Toronto has as much crime as your city. We got cred) I will forbear to comment on the video with any more negativity. I just want to put in a plug for all baseball fans in general. We tend to be more literate and less hate filled than football fans (just my opinion, feel free to disagree), and don’t get me started on hockey fans (I should give them a break I guess. After one too many pucks to the face and/or hockey fights its a miracle many of them can still type, let alone spell).

      • ahealthyscratch - Feb 21, 2011 at 4:02 PM

        That’s true. In fairness, I also probably shouldn’t have used the term illiterate because all it is at the end of the day is more inane name-calling. And like you said, what am I, a football fan?

        For what its worth, though, I am also a huge hockey fan. Hockey fans are a mix between baseball and football fans.

      • cur68 - Feb 21, 2011 at 4:11 PM

        “Hockey fans are a mix between baseball and football fans.”
        Yeah, I feel you there. They just got fewer teeth.

  13. yankeesfanlen - Feb 21, 2011 at 3:49 PM

    Why are they in the closet of a janitors closet? Guy on the left must be celebrating President’s Day- Calvin Coolidge style.

  14. rpalena - Feb 21, 2011 at 3:51 PM

    Someone should tell Nats fans that if they don’t want fans from other cities “infesting” their stadium, then maybe their own fan base should buy tickets and actually go to their own stadium. I’ve been to Nats park three times in the past two seasons and there couldn’t have been more than 10,000 Nats fans there. It’s a short drive from the closest rival, the Phillies, so of course Phillies fans are going to come down and go to Phillies games there. The Braves, Marlins, Mets and Nationals fans have no business complaining when their rivals come to their stadium and hordes of Phillies fans are there to support their team. If you buy tickets and go to the games, like Phillies fans do here in Philadelphia, you eliminate the “maggots” that come to watch the visiting team.

    • xmatt0926x - Feb 21, 2011 at 4:21 PM

      Right on Rpalena. I’m reading all the posts and I clearly remember the sensation that was created last year when the Nats stadiun was 80% phillies fans. Why all the buzz? Why declarations of hate and revenge? Is it not a simple answer? Tell dumb and dumber to beg mpmmy and daddy to break the Mastercard out and buy them a few tickets. Ohh, by the way. It’s not reported very much that ticket agents from the Nats were actively recruiting Philly area fan groups to buy up large lots of opening day tickets last year. Bottom line? Get your own fans to buy some tickets for your own team and maybe opposing fans might stay away and your own teams ticket agents might not have to beg Philly fans to come and fill your stadium.

      • baseballfan16 - Feb 21, 2011 at 4:36 PM

        No no… it’s not a declaration… as Phillies Superfan [b]suckitflorio[/b] pointed out, it’s a deceleration.

        He’s sorry he had to dumb down his vocabulary for you, simple minded fan, to understand.

  15. rewbschaft - Feb 21, 2011 at 3:53 PM

    I hope they post a rebuttal once Nats park is sold out with Phils fans again

  16. schmedley69 - Feb 21, 2011 at 5:28 PM

    Almost as scary as these two Mets fans:

    • cur68 - Feb 21, 2011 at 5:53 PM

      Nice tune, I can just about hum along with it…I was admiring their logic right till they dropped that rhyme about Delgado at the end. Now all I can think is ‘drugs are baaaaaaad…m’kay’

    • phillysoulfan - Feb 22, 2011 at 4:50 PM

      “We owed the Phillies in 2008″? really? Who had the parade again?

  17. clay52 - Feb 21, 2011 at 6:05 PM

    who are the nationals???
    ha good luck by the way

  18. Rick Chandler - Feb 21, 2011 at 6:06 PM

    Guy in white T-shirt turns in most non-essential role in a comedy since Larry of the Three Stooges.

  19. thinklewis - Feb 21, 2011 at 9:22 PM

    I remember last year reading a Phillies blog about how someone from the Nationals (in Sales I assume) called them and asked if they wanted to reserve group tickets because they had bought them the previous year. Even the Nationals know there best chance of selling tickets is to cater to other teams fans.

  20. kinggw - Feb 21, 2011 at 10:07 PM

    Nats fans dont worry. The Phillies are heading towards the end of a great run. Within a few years the Phillies will be irrelevant again. Like the Yankees, time will soon catch up with them and than they wont have to worry traveling to DC to get a ticket, plenty will be available at Citizens Bank. Aside from the last few years and 93 the Phillies have sucked. Contrary to the way they act now, Phillies fans havent always been so supportive.

    Im not hating, I grew up going to Phillies games and remember seeing the Vet being a cavern. This Phillies run and the fan support accompanying it is cyclical. Phillies fans are something else, but they dont have the passion of Cubs fans or travel like the Red Sox fans do.

    • Jonny 5 - Feb 22, 2011 at 8:49 AM

      Actually, I’m going to hafta bust ya on that one buddy. Here are the attendance #’s

      The Cubs @ home 3,062,973 away 35,043 avg.
      The Rsox @ home 3,046,443 away 34,948 avg.
      The Phils @ home 3,647,249 away 39,005 avg.

      In regards to passion, I’d have to say Philly ranks. Now watch this season. It’s going to blow your mind now that Cliffy’s back.

      PS, you’re right about the Vet. It was like a half empty toilet. The fans started filling CBP when it was built, a stadium and a winning team seem to make all the difference to some people. I sometimes miss the days when you could always walk up and buy a ticket at the door.

      • Jonny 5 - Feb 22, 2011 at 8:52 AM

        I’m sorry, I have to amend the road #s, I was looking at overall avg up there.

        road #’s
        Cubs 32,272
        Rsox 32,285
        Phills 32,982

      • phillysoulfan - Feb 22, 2011 at 4:53 PM

        Yeah, but we still averaged 20-25,000 a game, which is twice as much as the Nats now. And these were some TERRIBLE teams

    • delawarephilliesfan - Feb 23, 2011 at 11:26 AM

      So let me get this straight – your contention is that “…Within a few years the Phillies will be irrelevant again. Like the Yankees, time will soon catch up with them ”

      Ummmm…..the Yankees have 18 straight winning seasons, and 71 winning seasons in the last 82 years.

      The Phillies are a wash in cash, and have pulled off a lot of good moves. Yes, they have had to trade a lot of prospects, but that can be rebuilt in a 4 or 5 year window, which they can ride through with the money they have.

      Smart GM, lots of money – I agree, the Phillies are going to end up like the Yankees

  21. delawarephilliesfan - Feb 23, 2011 at 11:17 AM

    When did the Nats get a 2nd fan?
