The Top 10 Reasons You Know You're an Eagles Fan
Well today there are no major sports being played. A perfect opportunity to remind yourself you are the biggest Eagles fan. Or so you think.
We all know or consider ourselves Philadelphia Sports Fans. If you are one, you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. If not, have fun with this.
Here is a humorous look at ways you can identify yourself or identify the creepy guy sitting two rows in front of you heckling a five year old Cowboys fan (in Dallas). By the way, this picture is featured around Lincoln Financial Field.
10.) You Would Die For The Eagles
Well maybe not Andy Reid, but you would probably sell your soul to the Devil in return for a Superbowl win. Some may even become the first football martyr. Who knows?
9.) You Support Anything Associated with Philadelphia and the Eagles
Yes it's June, but there is still a reason to argue for the Eagles. It could even be a nuclear winter, but you would still argue that the eagles would have won their first Super Bowl this year, even if you are living in a cave.
8.) You Listen to and Believe Howard Eskin
The leading sports talk radio personality in Philadelphia loves the Eagles. Therefore, you love him. Yes, it is very unfortunate. For those of you who don't know, he is the one on the left. I almost thought he was the one on the right for a moment, but that is just the Burger King king.
7.) Anyone Not Wearing a Philadelphia Jersey is Your Enemy
This rule applies in all of the Philadelphia Stadiums and Arenas. If you're from Philly, you think this rule applies nationwide and in (Canada for that matter). This belief also gives you the right to heckle, throw beer, and yell obscenities at the 7-year old in a Cowboys jersey or so you think.
6.) You Think That Terrell Owens is the AntiChrist
Well why would an NFL player participate in the NBA All-Star Game festivities. the answer is two letters: T.O. I;m not even gonna go into his other antics, because i might be sent to hell for the utter mentioning of his name.
5.) You Hate Star Players
Whether it's Plexico Burress, T.O., any member of the Cowboys, Redskins, or Giants you still dislike them. It doesn't matter why, but the fact that they're on the other team and they score against you. You also occasionally hate your own star players if they under perform. We only cringe when these star players are beating us, and we cheer when they throw an incomplete pass or drop the ball.
4.) You Have Been in the 700 Level at the Vet
You've heard the stories. You've experienced the tall tales. You might have also participated in its antics. Public Urination, Useless Fighting, and Drunkenness for a few. To stick up for the kids, the Wolf Pack was there in the summer for the Phillies.
3.) Snowball Throwing is Your Best Sport
Although you were the Catholic League MVP in your senior season in 1963, a true Eagles fan best sport is chucking a snowball. A Philly fan's second best sport? Battery Heaving. The picture of Ed Rendell is because he was rumored to have heaved one at Jimmy Johnson. And of course we all must never forget the Santa Claus incident. But hey, if your team was going to be able to draft O.J. Simpson and they decided to win the final game of the season and draft second, I'd be mad too.
2.) You Hate the Cowboys, Redskins, Giants and Every other NFL Team.
Not because of their achievements, but because of how they beat the Eagles. This one is pretty simple.
1.) You Would Put a Second Mortage on the House Just to Go to the Superbowl
That is if the Eagles were playing. Not only would you do that, but you would also totally blow off your family for two weeks before the Superbowl. If you still didn't have any money left, you would probably sleep in your car in the parking lot at Land Shark Stadium (Dolphin Stadium) before the game and tailgate for three straight days.
