Can our teams please have a routine flight?
Last month, after beating the Giants in Game 5 of the NLCS, the Phillies' team plane, a Delta 747 charter, had to perform a go-around on their descent into Philly.
On Sunday, the Eagles' experienced severe turbulence on their way back from Dallas:
Without warning from the pilot the plane ran into heavy turbulence and did a couple of free falls over a course of an estimated minute and a half of rocky flight.
“I don’t know if it was life-threatening or anything like that,” said guard Reggie Wells. “It was serious, though. It was the worst turbulence I’ve ever been in, I’ll tell you that. Guys spilled drinks on themselves. Some guys were falling over. It wasn’t a light one, that’s for sure.”
And Mike McGlynn? He hosed all over the place.
“I was hosing at the time. I was hosing all over the place.”
No truth to the rumor that Andy Reid switching seats is what caused the turbulence.
