Ya gotta love Philly Phans...... "The Giants and Eagles played in front of a special guest. Vice President-elect Joe Biden watched the game in a luxury suite with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie. Biden was booed when he was showed on the video screen."
Joe Biden now ranks up there with Kobe Bryant, Sarah Palin, Beyonce, the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus. Giants won 36-31.
Fans in Philly boo for the fun of it toward non athletes. 80% of the city votes Democrat so Biden was their choice.
The Philly fans boo Santa Clause at the Eagles game because this particulr Santa was a slob. His outfit was falling apart and he looked drunk. I was probably one of the guys booing. This is the same Santa that got snowballs thrown at him.
Palin got boo cause she was on the Republican ticket. Jimmy Johnson got boo cause his hair was too neat and off course coach of the Cowboys. Cowboys beat up on the Eagles for years until Dick Vemeal stopped it and then again until Buddy Ryan stopped it..
Any player who doesn't give 110% will get boo. Did Bobby Clarke or Paul Homgren ever get boo? NO! Did you see Victorino get boo? NO. Westbrook? Montgomery? Iverson? Barkley? Cunningham? Bobby Jones? Barber? Parent?
Cap.....you're taking this way too seriously. The fans cheered when Michael Irvin was laid out and had to be revived so they do cheer occasionally. I was around when the Flyers were winning with Parent....I remember the banner read "only The Lord saves more than Parent" and at that time it was so true.

Ahh them were the days, Cunningham running around the field like a chicken with it's head cut off and the most dominating Defense of all time. You knew the chances were 50/50 they were going to lose but those were the wildest and most entertaining games ever.
Eagles best chance ever to win a Super Bowl was the year of the *Fog Bowl*. Eagles were stomping the Bears until the fog rolled in. The Eagles got psyched out and the Bears took over and won, 20-12. That was an amazing Eagles team. Clyde Simmions , Reggie White, Pitts, Golic, Joiner, Evans, Mike Quick, Eric Allen, Cunningham, Wes Hopkins, Jerome Brown, Andre Waters, Keith Byers & Keith Jackson. That's an All-Star bunch.
