Philadelphia Is Calling Itself “City of Champions” and THIS City Is NOT Having It (TWEETS)

On Monday night, after the Villanova Wildcats won their second NCAA men’s basketball championship in three years, CBS broadcaster Jim Nantz apparently proclaimed Philadelphia a “city of champions.”

Not surprisingly, Philadelphia sports fans immediately picked up the “City of Champions” moniker and ran with it:

Of course, the Eagles’ Super Bowl victory was epic. Villanova is clearly a college basketball dynasty. And hey, good for the Philadelphia Soul on winning a couple of WNBA titles. But most sports fans would still question whether all that is enough to make Philadelphia a “City of Champions.”

You know who’s DEFINITELY not ready to call Philadelphia a “City of Champions?” PITTSBURGH.

As many Pittsburgh sports fans were quick to point out on Twitter, Pittsburgh has been calling itself the City of Champions for decades, and they were none too pleased with Jim Nantz.

Take a look:

How about we just say Philadelphia is no longer the saddest sports city in America?
