Live From Philly
The Giants are down. The Eagles are wounded. The Redskins are on the rise. A win tonight--in arguably the most important football game in world history--plus a win next week (when Dallas plays at Chicago), and the Skins head into the bye undefeated with a good chance at first place in the division. Expect a special section in The Post. To commemorate this day of maximus optimism, I'll be spending most of it in the Philly parking lots, mingling with our green-clad anti-American friends, who reportedly will start arriving around 9 am. The primary goal is to find out exactly how one spends 12 hours preparing for soul-crushing devastation. The secondary goal is not to get killed.
While I drive to Philly, enjoy these links.
The 700 Level profiles an Eagles fan who paints her body in an homage to Jerome Kearse. Maybe NSFW.
The Philly Daily News predicts a 20-17 Eagles victory. Blinded by homerism. The Daily News also mistakenly calls Brandon Lloyd "not hot." He's just biding his time, is all.
The Inquirer has seven "experts" pick; all select the Eagles. Where do they find these people? David Aldridge says "The back of Washington's jerseys should read 'Property of Lurie.' "
Ashley Fox says that this game is a "must-win" for the Eagles. Which means, if they lose, they forfeit the season. Them's the rules.
Off to try to find this guy:
