This may be one of my favorite photos ever. Just the boys – (from left to right) Chip Kelly, Howie Roseman and Don Smolenski – struttin’ the tarmac at Northeast Airport. Cessna Citation X twin-jet. Blue jeans. And an Eagles visor, given to Kelly upon his arrival by Roseman and Smolenski. Apparently, Kelly breaks out in hives if he goes more than few hours without wearing one.
An Eagles PR person directed Kelly over toward awaiting fans and media (well played). Kelly said that he received a text aboard the plane that he was being tracked like Santa Claus (wonder who they could have been talking about). He added: “… which was flattering until I remembered the Philly fans booed Santa Claus.”
Ah yes, there it is. We’ll give him a mulligan– he’s new here.
