The Eagles already pulled out all the merch stops for this weekend’s Sunday Night Football matchup against the Giants, but now, they’re going all in on halftime. Promoting their new album Collide, Boyz II Men will perform live on the field at halftime, and those not at the game can catch their performance (likely of “Motown Philly,” but an audible into “One Sweet Day” would be weird and wonderful) on the Eagles’ website and mobile app. It’s going to be great, but it also reminds me of one of the greatest moments in television history: The sing-fight from Making the Band 4 set to “End of the Road”.
And if that wasn’t enough of an effort to up your gameday experience, the Eagles have been sending surveys out to game attendees to ask about their travel time, cell reception, and more:
In sending out the survey, the Eagles said: “With the help of the National Football League, we are working to ensure that we are meeting your expectations in every way … we invite you to share your thoughts with us by completing the following survey. Please take the next 15 minutes to express your opinions relating to your overall gameday experience, and if possible, please aim to complete your survey by this Saturday.” The league could probably be focused on some more pressing matters, but it’s nice that the Eagles care.
And finally, in the lowest form of pre-game smack talk, Prince Amukamara and Dominique “Still in the League” Rodgers-Cromartie posed with Giants super-fan “License Plate Guy” and his personalized Eagles jersey:
We can’t say it about Amukamara, but that zero DRC is holding up also represents the number of Super Bowls he’s won. Plus, I’d almost rather have zero Super Bowls than be seen with this guy. Almost.
