Philadelphia Columnist Says Glendale Boring, Arizona Good for Nothing But Porn Stars

Is Glendale horrifically boring, its citizens so apathetic toward football they wouldn't care if Larry Fitzgerald was nearly killed in a motorcyle accident?

That's what blogger Jason McIntyre of the Metro of Philadelphia writes in a recent blog post trashing the town entitled "Glendale Less Than Super." In his light-hearted, trash-talking piece, McIntyre says people shrug when he asks about the Super Bowl, and that Glendale "just isn't a city that bleeds football, like, say, Pittsburgh," he writes. Along the way, he gets in digs on the Cards and the whole state in general.


Sure, there are a lot of antiques in Glendale -- but the town isn't high on McIntyre's vacation list? In the winter?


Enjoy your week, buddy -- and don't forget your mittens.
