There are now medical studies proving the Phillies cause Philladelphians to be depressed. Someone come to my house and lock my gun up please. Don’t move here if you were thinking about it. We are doomed to be depressed.
Maybe it was all those years of futility for the Phillies. Or the shadows cast by New York City to the north and Washington, D.C., to the south. Whatever the reasons, Philadelphia has earned the melancholy distinction of being America’s most depressed city, followed closely by Detroit and St. Petersburg, Florida. Men’s Health compiled this list based on antidepressant sales, courtesy of NDC Health; suicide rates, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); and the number of days inhabitants reported being depressed, based on the CDC’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, accessed through bestplaces.net.
