Philadelphia magazine is out with its annual “Best and Worst of Philly” issue, that tried-and-true “let’s do something nice for our advertisers” number so beloved by regional magazines everywhere.

The article isn’t on the web -- that’s not how things are done there -- but that doesn’t matter because that’s not really what this post is about.

It’s about a former sports team of which I had never heard, the Philadelphia Bulldogs. Get this, the Bulldogs were a a roller-hockey franchise, and according to Philadelphia, which misguidedly listed the Bulldogs as Philly’s “Best New Sports Team” in 1996 (Could there have been much competition?), Tony Danza had something to do with it.

You can’t make this stuff up.
