15. Our palates are equipped to handle scrapple
Before the nose-to-tail movement was a thing, we were eating scrapple for breakfast. Don’t tell your squeamish friends what's in it until after they’re finished.
16. We've got the most passionate sports fans
Notice we did not say "best" or "most humane" fans, but the fire is here. It might be a fire we set under Joel Embiid's ass, but it's here.
17. We gave the world Rocky
Outside of the historic side of the city, probably the best-known contribution Philly has made to pop culture is Stallone’s seminal character. You can thank us for Rocky I, II and IV; to a lesser extent, Rocky III; and to a much, much lesser extent Rocky Balboa. We don't need to talk about Rocky V.
