Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter has been spending some time in London this week in an attempt to get some British businesses to think of Philly when looking for cities to work in in the future. He also apparently saw some bridges and towers and princes and whatnot, and maybe attempted to drum up some tourism excitement. We've got bells and pretzels and places that document the deep history of telling the British to bug off.
He also had this photo op with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair in which he presented him with a Philadelphia Union jersey. The folks on the other side of the pond are rather into that soccer / futbol game.

UPDATE: There were many teams represented. Like the Phillies!
