NFL asks ‘What’s the Philliest?;’ Philly answers: PPA, MOVE, Swiss Cheese Pervert

It’s Veterans Stadium, not Veteran.

Philliest Draft

The NFL Network came up with its own draft of Philadelphia icons this morning. Hours before the real Draft, it’s asking — seriously — “What’s the Philliest?”

The choices are about exactly what you’d expect: Will Smith, Ben Franklin, Mike Schmidt, “It’s Always Sunny,” Boyz II Men, etc. There’s a few odd ones, too, like democracy. First off, democracy isn’t an icon. Secondly, it’s more of an Athens thing. Also: It’s Veterans Stadium, not Veteran, and Cream Cheese is not a Philadelphia thing. And really, no Phanatic? It should make every cliche list.

Fortunately, Phillly Twitter came up with a few more genuine responses.
