This weekend two Boston teams are in town. The Celtics, and the Red Sox. We have 5 games ahead of us between Philadelphia and Boston teams. The Celtics for games 3 and 4 of this 2nd round series, and the Red Sox for a 3 games series vs the Phillies. It’s a wild weekend of games ahead of us. The sports complex will be packed with people all 3 days. Which team will get the best of each other in each of these games, we don’t yet know. But one thing we do know is that Philadelphia is better than Boston regardless.
I am in a unique position to weigh in here. I spent the first 5 years of my life in Massachusetts. But even as a toddler, I was able to realize that we would all be better off in Philly. So we moved.

We both call it a hoagie and we both root for the Birds. So it still counts.

So for the sake of brevity, I will keep the list to just 11 reasons why Philly is better than Boston. Apologies to all the family I still have in Boston. It’s nothing personal. Im just stating the obvious. Which is that Philadelphia is by far the better city.
Here are 11 things that prove it:
