Politicians often pander to their local base by invoking sports teams. Whether they’re actual fans of a team or not, they’ll often mention them because they want to latch onto the goodwill from the community.
Democrat John Fetterman, who is running for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania despite having a stroke that has clearly diminished his ability to think and speak properly, tried to invoke the Philadelphia Eagles during a recent campaign event. He was so excited about it, he invoked them twice in the same sentence. Watch:

There is no way this guy should get more than 30% of the vote from Democrats who know nothing but vote straight party ticket. Unfortunately, most Democrats in Pennsylvania are sticking their heads in the sand if polls are to be remotely believed.
