But this is of interest to Philadelphia fans. Phillies All-Star outfielder Domonic Brown came out on Twitter last night and revealed that he is a Cowboys fan. The man who was on his way to being beloved by the Philadelphia fans just took a step back in the eyes of many.
As much as we want our athletes to be adopted Philadelphians and root for the other teams in the city, part of me respects Brown for this. I don't like the Cowboys and I would rather him be an Eagles fan but, if I were in his shoes and I was playing baseball in Texas, I wouldn't shy away from being an Eagles fan.
Brown, who just turned 26, is batting .274/.320/.513 with a team-leading 27 home runs and 81 RBIs this season but has been sidelined for over a week with an Achilles tendon injury. The corner outfielder was selected to his first ever All-Star Game this year at Citi Field.
