Beat the House 2008
EaglesSuck Wrote:As far as "emotional" stadium finale, do you have any fond memories of the Vet besides vomit & arrests Hooch? :)

Shit, I was practically raised there. I've spent time everywhere from box seats at third base as a kid to the 50 yard line penthouse suite as an adult to selling gameday newspapers around the whole complex to routinely braving the 700 level where many men didn't have the stones to go during an Eagles game. I've had a blast my whole life there... which is the basis of why I have a very difficult time understanding why people root for teams that they can't get in their car and go see whenever the hell they want.

Still, I really didn't give a shit when it was imploded. The players gave even less of a rat's ass.

wow, you could make a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie out of that speech Hooch huge grin

also, back in the day I'd fly out to Big D for like 2 or 3 games a year. That was before the family came. But I still try to make it for at least one a year if I can.

There appears to be a glitch in the voting this week. Each of the % tallies you see on the voting page is actually for the game above it. The first game, Falcons/Rams, is 100% disagree because votes aren't registering for it. (the 1 vote in there is mine and entered manually)

This is what I'm going to do... since no votes have been recorded for the last game, Denver/San Diego, I'm going to give everyone a free win for that game. Everything else can be adjusted accordingly when voting is over.

Well, number 4 isn't bad. Only 6 points away from the top spot. At least I have something to feel good about today. :cool:
