“The is the true story of a buncha Eagles, picked to live in a house, work together and drive a white van, to find out what happens when people stop being polite… and start getting real.”

Remember what it was like in college (or when you first moved away from home) when you had that chance to live with your friends and it ruled? Now imagine that happened in California and you were all professional football players. And you had a cool van. That’s what some Eagles are doing for the San Diego-based minicamp put together… by Mark Sanchez. From Birds 24/7:

A good number of the players in attendance have Southern California ties, like Ryan Mathews and Seyi Ajirotutu. Matt Barkley was there for a portion of the week as well, Durkin said. Others, like Jordan Matthews, wandered a little further from their roots to be there.

They are all staying in one house, says Durkin, and travel around together in a white van that he has dubbed the “Eaglemobile.”

“I said all you need now is a green pair of wings on that van and you’ll be set,” he said. “It’s cool, the bonding that is happening. You’ve got the guys driving around in a white van, they’re coming out and laughing and having fun. When it’s go time they’re working their butts off. We’ve got rookies out here, we’ve got guys that are trying to make the club, we’ve got proven veterans that are showing the young guys how to work.”

There’s a few other great things they can do with that van, too. They can fight crime. They can carpool to Comic Con. They can go grocery shopping in a large group like a bunch of friends who didn’t plan their vacation properly. They can fight crime. They can head down to the kegger in the field by the quarry. They can fight crime.

For real, they should fight crime. The Birdmen.
