Jonathan Pettibone should be a politician. Pettibone knows how to navigate in the town in which he works. Chris Christie, Governor of New Jersey, recently upset half of his state by making comments that he "hates" the Phillies.

Recent days have seen a number of Phillies players root for other teams.
First, Phillies catcher Cameron Rupp declared that he was rooting for the Cowboys:

ELI TO CRUUUUUUZZZZZ!!! Lets go GMen!!
Shortly thereafter, Domonic Brown and Ben Revere were busy with their football viewing party, and Brown posted his support for the Dallas Cowboys:
Meanwhile, Los Angeles-area native Justin De Fratus pronounced support for the Oakland Raiders:

De Fratus and Rupp are indeed from the areas in which their teams play. But Brown? Brown hails from Zephyrhills, Florida, and wrapped up his high school career in Georgia. No Texas in him.
But then again, Pettibone is from Yorba Linda, California. But, I will take his support.
