Well. they can't win the big one, and the Flyers blew their chance this year, and the Eagles have blown their chance the last 3 years and the Sixers, well you know the story. In fact Philadelphia teams have blown a shot at the big one 34 times in the last 21 years!
Well, Smarty Jones has a chance to reverse Philadelphia fortunes as the local horse has a great chance to win the Triple Crown today at Belmont, the first horse to do so since 1978. He (this Philly ain't a filly) just might start a winning trend in that fair city (is there some kinda curse there I don't know about?).
