Great Moments in Springsteen Television History: "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia"



Saying "yes" is not only a great way to succeed in improv comedy, but also a great way to succeed in life.  Cynicism and doubt may help you avoid danger, but it will also completely prevent you from taking the risks necessary to achieve your dreams.  This truism is made clear in "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia", a show that not only makes you laugh but teaches you morals and valuable life lessons.  In the episode "The Gang Gets Stranded in the Woods", Charlies and Dennis find that saying "yes" leads them to unforgettable experiences in Atlantic City, ranging from meeting a suspicious trucker to winning a ton of money, donating it to charity, and having a drunken romp with Chase Utley and Ryan Howard set to the tune of "Glory Days".  This also ties in with another important lesson hammered home in many episodes of "It's Always Sunny": drink a lot and have fun, because nothing bad will happen.  Coincidentally, your three blog writers will be making a trip to Atlantic City tonight, testing out these practices.  So, if you see three men saying "yes" and singing Bruce tunes, be sure to stop by and introduce yourself.
