The Eagles made a big announcement yesterday at 3 PM. Nope, they didn't cut Michael Vick or do something relevant, they kissed the collective ass of their fan base by announcing that season-ticket holders, instead of players, will grace the front of tickets this season.
And you know you have no star power when?
DeSean Jackson is the only player who you can truly consider "notable" going into a season sans Wesbrook and McNabb. Something tells me the Eagles don't consider Jackson a good face for the organization.
So now we get the real heart and soul (not so sure about the brains part) of the team on the tickets- guys who run into burning houses to save their ticket strips and who paint their neighbor's roofs Eagles green for overhead planes. Although, I'm pretty sure bar-codes and FAA regulated flight levels render both of those tasks useless.
Fly Eagles, fly. Just not too high, or else you won't see Bob's neighbor's roof.
They also announced Don Tollefson and Hugh Douglas will host an in-game halftime show at the Linc. You thought Tolly was annoying on TV, imagine his voice boomed across a 70,000 seat stadium. Fuck.
