Sharkey himself spoke with Wondering Sound about Dark Blue's Pure Reality, but the conversation didn't stop there. Read up on the full interview here and check out Sharkey's thoughts on Philadelphia sports below.
Couple that with the depression of growing up a Philadelphia sports fan.
The only psychic tool any Philadelphian needs is a negative outlook, especially concerning the city’s sports teams. I learned at around age 7 to stop asking my old man if the Eagles or Phillies were gonna win a championship. I never liked hockey. That shit was like white trash roulette to me. I don’t eat hoagies for breakfast, which is a typical Flyers fan activity. I grew up liking the Sixers. My school was full of black kids and white kids and I definitely remember being called a “[racist expletive] lover” for being Sixers fan, thank you Philadelphia. I saw the Phillies win the World Series alone by myself in a pub 11:30 a.m. in Australia. I can’t explain it, but it was kind of perfect. I felt a little gypped until I remembered I couldn’t give two flying fucks about that stupid fucking parade, a scene that meant vomiting on a police officer that was smoking a joint and looting a luggage store. That’s called becoming a man right there.
