Right now...

Right this very minute, ESPN2's First Take is interviewing a William Penn impersonator...about a curse...based on the fact that there are now buildings in Philadelphia that reach higher than his likeness perched atop City Hall. He was asked how this will affect their chances of winning the World Series and what he thought of the city putting jerseys on the statue in the past.

Let that fester for a moment.

William Penn. Impersonator. Being interviewed. On ESPN. About a "curse".

It really makes those mohawks and "9=8" shirts seem sensible and classy doesn't it.
