Philly Fans Nitpick Cardinals "Sign Man" Marty Prather
Earlier this week one of Prather's placards with a wrong word choice got picked up by the Philadelphia sports blog, The Fightins.
Prather should have used the word "capital" as in a city that serves as the official seat of government and not "capitol" which means the building that houses a government's legislature.
Now Phillies fans are letting Prather and his questionable word usage have it. Here's what one fan (Will H.) writes on thefightins.com:
st. louis and their love afair with themselves is irritating. no one thinks so highly of themselves more than cardinals fans. who the hell labels themself the baseball capital/capitol of the world? next time the game comes to philly, im going to make an expensive, awkward sign too. "welcome to philly, fuck you all"
