  1. Many go with "ph-"
  2. But there's just as vocal a contingent — maybe more vocal — that feels "tw-" is more offensive
  3. The Phanatic has probably ingratiated the practice among sportsfans
  4. And of course, there's a way to not see any of the "twocab" at all
  5. So "ph-" isn't so bad, just another one of the trials we must suffer to live in this glorious city
  6. Philadelphia is worth it.
  7. Center City Philadelphia
    Center City Philadelphia
