I write to you on behalf of all Philly sports fans. With the holiday season upon us, I thought it was important to touch base and check on the status of what list we are on.
From the outside looking in, one might think Philly fans hold a permanent spot on the naughty list, but that's far from the truth. We're good people. Loyal, passionate fans. Dedicated beyond belief. And don't forget, we gave Trea Turner that season-changing standing ovation in August.

Oh, and if it's not too much to ask … *maybe* a trophy and a parade. We'll let you pick which team, though. The whole element of surprise and all that.
P.S. If you could tell national media to stop bringing up the snowball incident from five decades ago, that would be awesome. We've been trying to tell them ourselves but nothing we say ever gets through.
