No, you're cool, gentle ribbing aside. Nothing like the fight that erupted two seats over from me @ Citi Field on saturday night when a drunk Mets fan (female) was upset that another mets fan wasn't as supportive as he could be, and decided it would be a smart move to dump beer on and take a (several) swing at his girlfriend. Lots of fun was had.
Seriously though, if you go to a Phillies-Yankees game at CBP, be prepared for some foul language if you're in the upper deck, but its few and far between that fights will actually break out anymore. Any other time, nobody will care what you're wearing.

Seriously, Philly sports fans are universally known as the toughest in the nation. I mean, they booed Santa Clause at an Eagles game!
The Santa Claus thing...really? That happened in 1968 and apparently it applies to all philly fans in perpetuity. All I will say is at least we fill up every Phillies, Eagles, and Flyers game with passionate fans that actually show up before the 4th inning and stay through past the 8th...Heck the Flyers were still selling out games when they were dead last in the league during the 2006-2007 season, and that was a dark dark time in Flyers history... You'll be absolutely fine so long as you're not completely in other peoples' faces...Cheer for your team but don't start s**t by mocking the home team or engaging a drunk fan in less than civil discourse.
