Rookie 76ers center Nerlens Noel won't step on the Wells Fargo Center court until Christmas at the earliest as he recovers from an ACL injury, but he's not wasting any time getting to know Philadelphia. Namely, our other sports teams and the sports teams we hate.
Case in point, via CBS Philly:
Noel stopped by Cheesesteak Tees at 506 South St on Wednesday night, and bought an "I Hate Sidney Crosby" shirt. The store sells novelty shirts centered around Philadelphia sports.
You've no doubt seen the shirt in question:
I'm on record as against the "Crosby sucks!" chant, because I think it's dumb and makes us look dumber. (You know, because he doesn't suck.) But a little flat out, in your face Crosby hate? All aboard.
Welcome to Philly, Nerlens.
