The Eagles tweeted this postseason pump up video roughly 20 minutes ahead of playoff tickets going on sale at 10 a.m. this morning.

Not the team’s best, but I’m aroused anyway. It’s a solid video that serves as a reminder that this team, although seemingly written off by almost everybody at this point, actually won THIRTEEN games this season, and is, you know, still pretty good.
According to some disappointed fans on Twitter who were hoping to score seats to the game, tickets sold out in less than a minute.
Would have been nice to get @Eagles tickets but somehow the site is all "sold out" right at 10am. It's a joke. Real fans get no tickets while the scalpers get them all and make it unaffordable. Really sad

@Ticketmaster logged in at 9:23 am. Eagles tickets go on sale at 10 am . The second they went on sale they were instantly sold out !! How is that possible?

Apparently, there’s an appetite in this city for witnessing disappointment live? Or…OR…let’s call this what it really is. You believe, don’t you? You charlatans in the comments section with your bogus cynicism. You frauds in the streets telling people, “No Wentz. No shot.” You believe, too. Let’s face it, the Eagles, quite literally, could have sold out this game in 29 seconds had they posted this:

That widespread skepticism and resignation, it’s all a facade, isn’t it? Most of you are just shielding yourselves because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you believe the Eagles are going to WIN! And the rest of you still too scared to open up your hearts? It’s okay to feel again. It’s not your fault.
