And congratulations to Duracell for capitalizing on the Eagles win with this amazing Twitter post clowning the less-than-stellar reputation of the Philadelphia sports fan that we are more than happy to publish here.

That’s just A-plus work. Bravo.
The post is an ode to the Philadelphia sports fan’s penchant for throwing things, from snow balls at Santa Claus to beer bottles at Ryan Howard to — most apt here — batteries at JD Drew and even then Eagles quarterback/now head coach Doug Pederson.
While things have been raucous in Philadelphia, fortunately there are no reports of battery attacks in Minneapolis or the City of Brotherly Love.
