"Victorino seems confused by the strange way we (Philadelphians) tend to speak our minds. That happens a lot with athletes. [Philadelphia] isn't Green Bay or Milwaukee or some other Midwestern hamlet populated by mindless lemmings thankful that they simply have a pro team to cheer so they can escape another exciting night of cow-tipping. In Philly, life moves at a faster clip and the expectations are high. With that comes a certain edge and attitude, but that seems like a fair trade-off in exchange for genuine passion."
