LIBERTY BELL CITY – PHILADELPHIA , PENNSYLVANIA . GOING BACK TO PHILADELPHIA .

It’s  been  ages  since  you  and  your  wife  went  back  to  your  hometown  of  Philadelphia ,  Pennsylvania .

Your  10  year  old  twin  boys  have  never  been  to  the  town  that  you  and  your  wife  were  born  and  raised  in .

This  doesn’t  mean  that  you  can’t  show  them  what  it  means  to  be  all  about  Philadelphia ,  though .

It’s  too  late  for  baseball  season ,  so  you  all  can’t  go  to  Citizens Bank  Park  for  a  Phillies  baseball  game .

The twins  are going  to  miss  seeing  in  person  one  of  the  best  mascots  in the  league ,  the  Phillie  Phanatic .

Speaking  of  phanatic ,  you  mean ,  fanatic ,  that’s  what  you  and  your  wife  are  when  it  comes  to  two  of  the  teams  in  your  city .

You  know ,  you  can  take  the  boys  and  girls  out  of  Philadelphia ,  but  you  can’t  take  the  Philadelphia  out  of  the  boys  and  girls .

You  didn’t ,  however ,  tell  the  twins  about  the  time  their  mild  mannered  mother  dumped  her  beer  over  some  Dallas  Cowboys  fan  who  had  the  NERVE  to  talk  about  your  Philadelphia  Eagles  football  team  at  a  game  in  PHILADELPHIA ,  no  less .

The  twins  are  going  to  break  out  the  Charles  Barkley  and  Allen  Iverson  Philadelphia  76ers  basketball  jerseys  for  the  basketball  game  that  you  all  are  going  to .

The  twins  are  going  ”  new school   ”  and  wearing  jerseys  from  one  of  the  current  members  of  the  team .

You  both  want  the  boys  to  have  a  real  Philadelphia  Cheesesteak  just  like  you  and  your  wife  did .

You  aren’t  going  to  take  them  to  Genos or  Pat’  s  –  King  of  the  Cheesesteaks  for  a  Cheesesteak .

Tourists  all  go  there ,  because  that’s  where  the  guidebooks  tell  them  to  go .

You  want  the  boys  to  do  the  Philadelphia  things  that  you  and  your  wife  did  as  kids ,  like  hanging  out  around  Penn’  s  Landing .

They’re  going  to  have  Philadelphia  Chicken  Cheesesteak .

The  kids  didn’t  know  that  there  was  such  a  sandwich .

Being  the  good  Philadelphia  kids  that  you  and  your  wife  are ,  you’ve  got  to  educate  them  on  all  things  Philadelphia .

You’re  definitely  doing  a  Philadelphia  Eagles  football  game ,  also .

As  none  of  you  are  interested  in  hockey ,  there’s  going  to  be  no  orange  and  black  Philadelphia  Flyers  hockey  stuff on  your  trip .

You  want  the  boys  to  see  Lincoln  Financial  Field ,  home  of  the  Eagles  and  the  Wells  Fargo  Center ,  home of  the  76ers .

They’ll  get  to  see  Citizens  Bank  Park ,  even  if  baseball  season  is  over .

It’s  right  across  the  street  from  the  other  two  arenas .

The  boys  will  be  taking  their  first  subway  ride  in  Philadelphia .

You  and  your  wife  can’t  wait  to  see  their  reaction .

You’ve  answered  the  first  question  of  where  are  we  going  to  go  on  our  30  Plus  Teams  Tour ,  but  your  coworkers  had  another  question  that  you  didn’t  really  know  how  to  answer  without  sounding  really  rude .

”  You’re  going  to  Philadelphia  for  WHAT  reason  again ? !  “
