Philadelphia sports fans are notoriously – let’s go with – intense with respect to their treatment of other teams. While they are no more disrespectful than any other team’s fans, they certainly do love to lay it on thick.
Take, for example, the parroting treatment (then) Braves pitcher Craig Kimbrel got when he tried to get the final two outs of a game back in 2014:
The Braves ultimately hung onto that game, with Kimbrel closing things out, but the win probability for the Phillies did swing from about 6% when the inning started to a high of 32% during the fans’ antics.
And with just about everyone getting involved …
… They almost pulled it off!
