Pissing in trash cans, being held in jail until your 'own recognisance', and pleading stupidity in your defence.

Man that makes me proud. We truly are the best fans in the world.;)

Yes, I feel cheated. The last time I was at the Vet was for a Braves-Phillies baseball game and all I saw was 2 fights, a drunk stumbling down the steps spilling nacho cheese all over the place, and some miscreant trying to trip the Phillie Phanatic on top of the dugout.

By the way, I'm shocked I wasn't involved in fights #3-20,000. I wore my Dallas Cowboys hat, IN THE FRIGGIN' VET, and made it out unscathed. I actually ended up having a nice conversation with some guys selling some green "Dallas Sucks" t-shirts in the parking lot. That had to be a rare occurance. Eagles and Cowboys fans having a cordial conversation outside the Vet.

    And its that sort of friendly, cordial behaviour that could result in we Iggles being accepted and god forbid, liked by general society. All Eagles fans attending the Vet this weekend, I implore you to indulge in new and exciting urinary misdemeanours after excessive alcohol intake. We have a rep to maintain.

    If ever there was an argument for more late kickoffs in Philly this is it.

    LOL! Who said anything about LIKING Eagles fans.
    By the way, what's up with Philly fans calling the Eagles the "Iggles"? I've got a friend from Wilmington, Delaware that is a big Eagles fan and he always calls them "Iggles" even when he's typing the name in an e-mail. Is it a local Philly pronunciation thing? I've spent some significant time in Philly and I didn't notice any odd pronunciation quirks from the locals.

        I dunno really. I figure Iggles just makes us sound a bit more cuddly and loveable. I'm not entirely sure thats the image I want us to be conveying though so I'll try and come up with something else.

        If you can think of a name that instantly fills you with feelings of equal measures of fear and loathing please let me know.

    I think it is more of a South Jersey bastardization of the word Eagles because they never learned how to speak the English language. They tend to do that a lot. Either that or substitute NE Philly/Levittown.

Today at the Vet, they booed Ja Rule after his awful halftime performance.
That was cool.
