UPDATE: Chip Kelly is Getting Rid of Taco Tuesdays at the Novacare Complex

In what has to be one of Darren Rovell’s first useful Tweets of the year, he relayed a report from Jeannine Edwards that Chip Kelly is doing away with Taco Tuesdays and Fast Food Fridays at the Novacare Complex… which leads you to ask: THOSE WERE ACTUAL THINGS? What, did they bookend Lard Wednesdays and Chocolate Truffle Thursdays? Andy Reid’s fatness continues to amaze me. Meanwhile, Kelly sounds like the meanest babysitter ever. No, kids, no more video games. Instead, we’re going to read Gatsby and discuss the cultural significant of Baz Lurhmann’s new film on reviving the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic. And we’re going to do it with snappy debate and while it acai berries.

This is just the latest in Kelly’s quest to have players who aren’t dying after running 43 plays in six minutes. Last month we learned that everyone gets personalized fruit smoothies instead of the Frosty and chicken nugget snacks Reid ostensibly provided.

UPDATE: This is awesome. The cafeteria has four signs explaining the food groups and what they do. Reid’s caf just had one sign: wit or wit out?

  1. That is unconstitutional, he can’t take away fast food Fridays. I’d request a trade if I was under contract for the Eagles cause you know I can’t live without tacos or fast food yum yum #FireChip

  2. Tacos remind him a pussy and we all know Chip ain’t down with pussy.

  3. I love the hypocrisy of Chip Kelly. He’s devouring cheese steaks and milkshakes with ease, while having the team on a strict diet of dirt and grass. I love it.

    1. It’s almost like the players have to participate in athletic competitions to fulfill the contracts they signed, and Chip doesn’t.

  4. I wonder he didn’t get rid of who’s in my mouth Mondays and anal Thursdays!

  5. I’m at work and I’m sitting at my desk in a quiet office laughing so hard that people are staring at me … One of the funniest threads I have ever read. You guys are crazy …

  6. A winning attitude from start to finish…These guys might not be bad this year.

  7. I visted the NovaCare complex last year, the food was always broken down into groups and they all were clearly labeled – red label foods were for gaining weight, yellow label foods were for maintaining weight, and green label foods were for losing weight. I’m sure tacos and fast food weren’t the only options for those days, they were probably the red label choices.
