Tough Time to be an Eagles Fan

November 20, 2007


Here I am living in Boston, home of perhaps the best football team in the history of the game.

And I could care less. Instead I am stuck rooting for the hapless Eagles who, let’s face it, just suck.

To share what it is like being an Eagles fan, I have copied below an email I got yesterday from my brother (also an Eagles fan):

Q: What do you call 53 people sitting around a TV watching the Super Bowl?
A: The Philadelphia Eagles.

Q: How do you keep a Philadelphia Eagle out of your yard?
A: Put up goal posts.

Q: Where do you go in Philadelphia in case of a tornado?
A: The Linc – they never have a touchdown there.

Q: What do you call a Philadelphia Eagle with a Super Bowl Ring ?
A: A thief.

Q: Why doesn’t Camden have a professional football team?
A: Because then Philadelphia would want one.

Q: What’s the difference between the Philadelphia Eagles & a dollar bill?
A: You can still get four quarters out of a dollar bill.

Q: What do the Philadelphia Eagles and possums have in common?
A: Both play dead at home and get killed on the road.

Q: How many Philadelphia Eagles does it take to win a Super Bowl?
A: Nobody knows and we may never find out.

And finally …

Q: What do the Philadelphia Eagles and Billy Graham have in common?
A: They both can make 70,000 people stand up and yell ‘Jesus Christ’!

As my Dad used to say, “oy veh.”

    andy reid needed to be fired yesterday. IMO he’s a part of the problem, not the solution.

    It’s been interesting to watch the Patriots over the last 12 years or so morph from one of the consistently bad teams in the NFL to unquestionably the best.

    In a shorter timespan (2001 to present) we’ve also seen them go from beloved underdog to a hated juggernaut that goes out and tries to maul every team it plays.

    And FWIW, I’ll be in Gillette Sunday watching what I think we both know will be another mauling.

    This made me LOL and as a Giants fan in Patriot Nation (could care less) I feel your pain. Not a bad showing last night though ! And for what it’s worth…I shouldn’t even be conducting a dialogue with a Eagles fan : ).

    You have an intriguing blog I just came across through Cinema Tech.

    Yet, I probably can’t feel sorry for your Eagles, being a Cowboys fan. However, what they did in Foxboro was very impressive and I actually found myself rooting for them. I can enjoy a good game no matter who the participants.

    And now after the Cowboys being a pretender for over a decade, maybe they can get it together and do something. And maybe have the Eagles provided a blueprint for the someone to take the Patriots out? Only if they have the personnel (like the Eagles seemed to), just like your articles on monetizing content. Only if you have the right content (whatever that is).

    Thanks for your brain food.
