David Wright Gives Phillies' Fans Credit For Reacting to Bin Laden's Death

Over the years, there's been no love lost between the Mets and the Phillies. But if you were watching the two teams play on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball last night when news of Osama Bin Laden's death broke, you witnessed a pretty powerful scene as the thousands of people in attendance in Philadelphia starting chanting, "U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!" right in middle of the game. It was so powerful, in fact, that even Mets third baseman David Wright had to recognize the fans in Philly for reacting the way they did. "I don't like to give Philadelphia fans too much credit," Wright said about the fans who once notoriously threw snowballs at Santa Claus. "But they got this one right." Yeah, after seeing the clip above, they definitely did. [via theScore]
