This may shed some light on why I don't like the Eagles!
I found this on The Smoking Gun website.
It a news story about a guy from Philly that got caught trying to extort money from the Superbowl Champion NY Giants head coach, Tom Coughlin.
Apparently, some guy named Herbert Simpson, no doubt related to Homer Simpson, sent a couple of letters to Coach Coughlin that he wrote himself, but tried to pass off as letters from two women that supposedly had sex with the coach while on a trip to Philly for a game last year.
What makes it really funny is that I guess the guys handwriting is so recognizable that when authorities went to the women accused of writing the letters they were able to tell them that Homers bro' actually wrote them and they had nothing to do with it. Maybe the letters had donut stains on them or something?
Let's think about this for a minute. Could you pick a more straight laced guy than Coach Coughlin to try and bribe? But I guess you just have to remember some things about Eagles fans...these are the folks that pelted Santa with snowballs back in the day. In case you forgot about that event and it's understandable how that could happen, I mean, it was 1968 after all, I'm adding a couple of different links to the story. You can see them here
. They're even written by what appear to be Philly fans. I only say that because they offer excuses for why fans would pelt Santa with snowballs, as if there's really an excuse for being so crude.
They say they did it because they were pissed at ownership for dismantling a good team. If that's the case, they should have hung Santa by now! I mean, come on, the Eagles have been dismantling good teams for years! Unfortunately for them, it's always been their own!
Hey Eagle fans....you know that movie Invincible with Marky Mark? You don't need to go see it, I can tell you how it ends....
...the Eagles DON'T win the Superbowl!
I know, sorry for spoiling it for you. I know you were all hoping that the movie maker would use a little poetic license and change history and actually let your team win a Superbowl!!! They might have...if you'd been a little nicer to Santa!
