Au contraire, mon frere!

I did read your post, that is why I asked the question. I understand that the FU center and the "Rectum" are two entirely different buildings, which is when I saw the talking heads standing in front of a large arena that had First Union's Logo on the side I was confused because I also saw a big sign (multi-colored) that said Spectrum. Hence my question.

I also have a Phillies story to tell.

In 1997, I took a vacation with a tour group that specializes in baseball. We would visit 10 cities in 10 days and see 10 different games. We stopped in Philly on August 1st of that year for a get-away day game featuring the Cardinals and the newly acquired Mark McGwire. The Phillies group sales person actually came down to where we were sitting and gave everyone in the group a Phillies cap. I am wearing it right now. In no other town did this occur. Remember back a few years ago there was a fan of a team that was threatening to move if they didn't get a stadium (I think it was the Giants). Anyway, this fan wrote a letter to the other 27 (at the time) baseball teams requesting information about becoming a fan of that team. The Phillies were the only ones to reply by sending him a personalized letter from the GM, a cap and concession tickets for when he visited. Ever since my experience, coupled with the other fan's experience, I have cheered for the Phillies. At least in this area, many teams could learn.
