There's a Fire Andy pun in here somewhere, I just can't find it.
Reader Jared sent along this picture of his Eagles season tickets, which, as you can see, he is threatening to light on fire. Welcome to the current state of our fucking football team, Philadelphia.
Let’s hit it.

– DeMeco Ryans prepared for the big game by getting crunked at the Sixers game on Saturday night:
– Think that last one was a but unfair? Well, Kansas City folks would have something to say about that. One woman gave wide receiver Dexter McCluster an earful after McCluster delivered her Thanksgiving dinner. Earlier in the season, Chiefs fans booed Matt Cassel’s concussion.
– It’s down to the Phillies, Braves and one mystery team for the services of B.J. Upton, according to reports. It seems like Upton will make a decision this week. So stay tuned.
– Gina Lynn, who has a history with Flyers (and most males), was at Operation Hat Trick in Atlantic City on Saturday:

The game was to raise money for Sandy and to, you know, let you see some hockey.
Vinny from Jersey Shore was one of the honorary coaches. Not surprisingly, he was booed lustfully by the type of blue collar hockey fans who would drive to Atlantic City to see an exhibition hockey game.
– Video from inside PSU’s locker room after their big win against Wisconsin. A well-deserved moment.
– It sounded a lot like Penn State coach Bill O’Brien called his team “a bunch of fuckers” on Saturday night.
