Now it’s just getting petty. For the period surrounding this year’s Super Bowl, P Boston is banning anything to do with Philadelphia from the city.
Boston is banning cheesesteaks, Philadelphia cream cheese, beers associated with Philadelphia. One Boston-based bakery chain even has cut ties—permanently—with its Philadelphia cream cheese distributor.
Boston is getting hysterical, too. In addition to banning foodstuffs, that city is banning people: Will Smith and Sylvester Stallone, one because he was raised in Philadelphia, the other because he set the Rocky series of films in that city. Even bald eagles—can you believe it?—are banned from the Esplanade.
This is another reason not to bother with the Super Bowl, at least for this year.
