abc6 weatherman, and part time Philadelphia Union blogger, David Murphy is no stranger to the Sons of Ben.

Throughout the Union's existence, the veteran television broadcaster has made appearances in front of Philadelphia's supporters group for abc6 gamedays. Well known for his 'on the streets' method of reporting, complemented by commercials involving city residents yelling "Yo, Murph!" out to him, Murphy is one of the more well liked local television personalities both out of, and inside of , PPL Park.

On multiple occasions, Murphy has been the subject of the Sons of Ben's love of spontaneous bouts of chanted appreciation and today's Union-Seattle Sounders game was no different.

During some of his television time, Murphy was asked by one of the Union pregame anchors about the lack of any Sons of Ben acknowledgements of his presence and it wasn't long before they played along.

Murphy isn't only at games for his reporting gig, as he revealed this week to PhiladelphiaUnion.com:

Absolutely, I think I was there for the first or second game and I try to get down [to PPL Park] as often as I can. I usually make about two or three games a year and I watch most of them on television. Every now and then job or family gets in the way. I do try to follow just about every game and for the ones I do miss, I go back and watch replays or highlights on MLSSoccer.com. I was a fan right from the start and it was easy to be a fan too.
