Philly Area Blogger Asks Phillies Fans To Play This Elton John Song

So to get everyone excited about the Phillies game tonight in LA, here's Elton John singing Philadelphia Freedom. I know, the song was really about the Philadelphia Shuffle Boarders or something like that - I've never claimed to know anything about sports but the song does mention Philly. A lot.

And as an added bonus, he's singing it on.......Soul Train. Yes Elton John went on Soul Train. I don't know who made this decision but by the looks of the dancers, I'm sure Don Cornelius was not happy.

"OK, Elton John is on? Elton John!? Fine, then I want all the crappy dancers that have been waiting on the sidelines to dance to his song. There's no way - NO WAY - I'm going to waste the funk and soul of my good dancers on this cracker nonsense. Now if 'll excuse me, I need to get my mole powdered."

As an elder statesmen of the blogworld, one who was around during the days of "Philadephia Freedom," I must point out that Elton wrote this song for Billie Jean King.
