The REAL Philly Quiz

There are a couple other quizzes on here about Philly knowledge. I took both of them and boy are they terrible! One is purely ancient historical data that only a baby boomer would know, and the other is highly subjective and based on personal tastes and stuff that has changed since it was written.

So, this is your chance to take a genuine Philly test based on unchangeable fact, much more recent history, and no Pat's or Gino's bulls---. This is the real deal, yo.
