UPDATE: Occupy Philly’s Phils Viewing Party is NOT Just a Rumor

You can't thank Mayor Nutter just yet

UPDATE: According to a Philebrity post, Sean Agnew—of R5 Productions and Union Transfer fame—says that there are projectors and large screens and speakers set up for a Phillies viewing party. A permit is in the works. [Philebrity]

Mayor Michael Nutter has not hooked up Occupy Philly protesters with a bunch of TVs to watch the crucial Game 5 of the NLDS between the Phils and Cards, according to Philadelphia Weekly. That’s probably a good thing because it would have been rather ironic if the 99 percent were watching millionaire athletes compete on TVs provided by the city’s Mayor while protesting about the economic chasm in this country.
