RECENTLY, in the Philadelphia suburb of Narberth, Pa., the premiere for a movie called "Invincible" was held. The movie is based on the true story of a Philadelphia bartender, who made the Philadelphia Eagles football squad through an open tryout and went on to play wide receiver for three years. As I understand it, the movie should be quite popular in Philly.
That said, it appears at least part of the premiere was conducted with the class, decorum and dignity one generally associates with fans of the Philadelphia Eagles, and the competence one generally associates with the team itself. This seems like as good a time as any to again note the Eagles haven't managed to win a league championship since 1960.

P.S. For those of my readers who may actually root for the Philadelphia Eagles -- God help you -- I'm sorry my comments remain broken. Feel free to e-mail me if you'd like -- or, just download the Cheesesteak of Suffering from these guys! You're welcome!Posted by Benjamin Kepple at August 14, 2006 06:23 PM | TrackBack
