The segment was about the infamous incident when Philadelphia Eagles fans booed a man in a Santa Claus costume at a game in 1968. Rendell was there and, in the segment, he confessed to booing Santa. However, Rendell also said that he refrained from throwing snow balls at Santa, unlike many of his fellow fans in the stands that day.
Love him or hate him, Rendell is a genuine Philadelphian and a genuine Philadelphia sports fan.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
