The undefeated champion Wall Street Bullies took center stage yesterday against the winless Fight for Phillies. The Bullies were looking to extend their remarkable winning streak against the Phillies led by their future “Hall of Shamer” coach, Mr. 1% and their team captain Wayne Greedsky.
The contest featured a tandem of bruising assaults on the 99% by Bullies Cam Steely and Brian Leech, Doug Drillmour, and Mario Blameyieux. While the Bullies and Phillies dueled back-and-forth, in the end, the Fight for Phillies were just too outmanned, out-salaried, and out-cheated. The Wall Street Bullies surged to a shutout victory with a final score of 331,000,000 to 0!

In reality, Fight for Philly hosted a mock street hockey game, held in front of the Wells Fargo Building on South Broad and Walnut Streets, to denote the day of Wells Fargo’s 160th Anniversary and to highlight the bad deals that Wells Fargo steered our schools into.
Over 100 people attended the “Thrilla’ in Phila” and flooded Broad Street to watch the Fight for Phillies take on the dreaded Wall Street Bullies. The mock game was a direct representation of how corporate greed has crippled our communities and schools. Time and time again, Philadelphians seem to be outnumbered and Big Banks show very little sympathy in their despicable actions against our communities.
“Players” of the Fight for Phillies voiced their displeasure against Wells Fargo in hopes that their message would strike a nerve with some of the bank’s personnel that ”attended” the game. “We’re here because corporate America is way out of reality with regular working people,” player-protester Earl McCollum from North Philly said.
At the conclusion of the game, Stumpf was given his very own “Wall Street Bullies” jersey, which Mr. 1% personally delivered to the receptionist inside Philadelphia’s main Wells Fargo location.
As Fight for Philly members slowly dispersed from in front of the Wells Fargo building and we chanted “We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
