Rob McElhenney

Big surprise, the creator of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Rob McElhenney, better known as Mac, is also a big Philly sports fan.  McElhenney grew up in South Philadelphia and went to St. Joe’s Prep for high school.

The Always Sunny crew have made multiple episodes surrounding the Phillies, even featuring guest appearances by Chase Utley and Ryan Howard.

And, of course, McElhenney had to make an episode about the 2008 World Series titled “The World Series Defense.”  Not exactly any baseball in that episode, but there was a hilarious fight scene between Charlie Day and a faux-Phanatic.

Incredible stuff.  I’ve said for years now, if you don’t find It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia humorous, then you just can’t be trusted.
