Okay, I have to admit up front that I grew up in D.C. and have something of an affinity for the baseball team that's currently in town playing the Phillies.
But a lot of you follow me on Twitter, or have been in my Phillies game chats over the years, and you know that I'm a steadfast defender of Philadelphia sports fans' right to yell whatever they want from the stands. You can boo someone as much as you want, no matter how dumb it makes you look or how much useless, over-the-top ridicule it invites from the rest of the country.
(And most of you already knew that other part of my background too. Which is fine.)
So I was reading the Washington Post's D.C. Sports Bog, which is a bit like this one in that it has journalists trying to take a fan-centric look at local sports, Tuesday morning at work. You might know about one of its authors, Dan Steinberg, because pretty much any time Philly fans do anything relating to a Washington sports team, he's on it within seconds.
