    Thanks for the shout-out JJ. I have lived in and around Philadelphia my whole life. My parents' families did, too. Most of my extended family is here as well. My mother (soon to be 94!), sister and brother and their families live in California. My father is buried there. I have little to add to your history, and the corrections made. I'm proud of my city, and secondarily to my state. Phillies, Flyers, Sixers, Eagles, and Union above all!

    That's great. I was on the list years ago, when my name came around I just couldn't do it financially. In fact, I just purchased my tickets to the home opener this weekend while I was down there with the family. Suffice to say I will be sitting in the nosebleeds this year and the price is now the same as lower level 40 yard line. That's what happens I guess.

    Don't forget the Naval Aircraft Factory, also at Philadelphia.
