“Life's not about how hard of a hit you can give... it's about how many you can take, and still keep moving forward.” Sylvester Stallone 'Rocky Balboa'
Something and everything felt comfortable and somehow right about being there. New York City had my heart, but while driving past Boathouse Row after college I knew Philadelphia was my home.
New York has Washington Square Park, the Giants (A Sophisticate is a Giants Fan), and the Yankees (A Sophisticate is a Yankees Fan). Philadelphia has the LOVE park, the Phillies. (A Sophisticate is a Phillies Fan), and the Eagles (A Sophisticate is an Eagles Fan)
Every city has legends and traditions, and the movie 'Rocky' (1976) is ours. Running up the Art Museum steps and the song 'Eye of the Tiger' is the soul of the city. For a Sophisticate it her heart and her soul that make Philadelphia her home. In the end, it is her ability to have the eye of the tiger and willingness to never give up in the face of defeat that makes a Sophisticate in Philadelphia. ;D
