Being a sports fan in Philadelphia right now is a blast. This year has been extremely successful for the majority of the main sports teams in the cities. Through six weeks, only the Philadelphia Eagles are unbeaten in the NFL. The Philadelphia Phillies are competing in the NLCS for a chance to advance to the World Series in the meanwhile.
When Eagles centre Jason Kelce attended the Phillies game for Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, the two major Philadelphia sports converged. The team’s longtime captain Kelce took part in the celebrations in traditional Philadelphia style. Much to the joy of the home crowd, the great centre drank a drink. via John Clark

At this time, Jason Kelce is essentially a native Philadelphian. The multi-time All-Pro centre has spent his entire career with the Eagles. He was a member of the storied Super Bowl team that defeated Tom Brady and gave an unforgettable speech during the celebration after the win. The Phillies are seeking to expand the city’s trophy collection.
The Phillies were not intended to be in this situation right now, in all honesty. They barely managed to secure a Wild Card position after an up-and-down season. However, it seemed as though a light switch was flipped for the Phillies once they reached the MLB playoffs. On their way to the NLCS, they easily defeated the Cardinals and the Braves.
The Philadelphia Phillies are now just two victories away from sweeping the San Diego Padres and advancing to the World Series. To overcome the tremendous lineup of the Padres, they will need to harness the enthusiasm of the Philadelphia fan base.
