Like Minnesotans, MLB star Joey Votto doesn't like the Eagles

We'll admit it: we're still bitter about Eagles fans throwing beer cans and Eagles quarterback Nick Foles throwing touchdowns en route to a soul-crushing loss by the Vikings in the NFC Championship Game last season. 

The Eagles won our Super Bowl in our stadium, and it hurts. But it feels really good when we see things like this:

"I was just having fun with them," Votto said via NBC. They give you a hard time during the game and that's my way of trying to give them a hard time back."

A writer from Philly Voice called Votto a "jerk," but that seems like a term better reserved for those who throw unopened beer cans at people.
