What we are most likely to see this week

A PHILLY WELCOME THOSE of us who would probably fall into the bracket of sports nerdism are all too aware of the reputation Philadelphia sports fans carry with them. This writer has been lucky enough to see the city's NFL team (the Eagles) and baseball team (the fairly unimaginatively named Phillies) in the flesh. And this we can report: the guy who came up with the 'City of Brotherly Love' slogan for Philadelphia should be on tour with Chris Rock, so brilliant are his comedy stylings. Philly sports fans are something to behold. When things are going good, they are a weapon for their home team, creating a cauldron-like atmosphere in which visiting teams burn. When things aren't going well, they're brutal. So this week's US Open, at the Merion club in West Philadelphia, should be interesting. By the end of Thursday we're pretty sure Sergio Garcia will regret the day the two words 'fried' and 'chicken' ever came out of his mouth.
