My 3 notes from my time in Philly:
Hands down the worst sushi I've ever had, in Philly. Including gas station sushi. Avoid like the plague.
If you have time to sight-see, skip the liberty bell and touristy crap; go see their amazing aquarium.
Philadelphians are in a city that looks like Raleigh, and act like they are New Yorkers. They slam cab hoods and curse at each other in the street...in front of a Victorian era courthouse. That basically sums up their personality as a whole; way too much bark for such a small dog. And the police chief's daughter is a gay basher (http://bluenationrev...-kathryn-knott/). I mean, seriously? Gay bashing? What year is this? My point is, don't bother getting offended by anyone or anything you see in Philly. Just treat them as you would if the "My New Haircut" guy got in your face and just laugh them off.
Gas station sushi? Go to an aquarium in one of the most historical cities in America? Looks like Raleigh? Are you confusing Philly with Cleveland?

Posting this for folks that might not get Black and Blue review daily emails. Bill Voth has set up crowd rise to help this Panther fan be able to continue his almost 20 year streak of not missing a home game. Make sure you read the article all the way to the bottom before you dismiss it.
It was better yesterday than it has been in years. The rotating co-host format (like the old Packer show) is nice so you don't have to listen to the same bozo's all week. Hope they can get "new regulars" as co-hosts other than the same line of nitwits that have done the co-host thing for years. Bring in Smitty for a day, Jordan Gross, Haywood, and other local pro athletes rather than the same old reporters and retreads.
I thought the show moved along quickly which I like. I hated Taylor and Marc where they basically repeated the first hour of the show again at 4pm just because some other markets didn't start until 4. Time will tell but at least it was a good start.
