The Philadelphia Eagles Fan Base: A Case Study.

If you’ve been following along with the constant coverage of the Super Bowl you probably noticed that Philadelphia Eagles fans are one of the most insane groups of people this world has ever witnessed.

They are an Internet gold-mine… Seriously all of these stories about Eagles fans before, during, and following the NFC Championship game and leading up to the Super Bowl are nuts.

For example…

I could post so many more photos and videos demonstrating how nuts these people are, but I think the point has been established after the video of throwing things at the opposing team’s bus… and wishing to fornicate with a 100-year-old grandmother who is a diehard Viking’s fan.

This isn’t just now… None of this is really new. In fact, Philly fans have been this nuts for the last 60 years. They have a long-storied history of being insane all because they love the Eagles and just their city’s sports for that matter.

Now I’m not going to sit here and do what you’re expecting me to do… I’m not here to say that “The ENTIRE Eagles fan base is a bunch of classless assholes!”

That would be petty, and I already have filled my quota for things I can be irrationally upset about with people from that part of the country.

Every fan base has bad eggs… Seriously, every single one. Eagles fans are no different. I have a lot of close friends who are Eagles fans who are great people. I used to work for a diehard Eagles fan during the summers and truly one of the best people I know who I’d go to war for if they needed me.

“Well if every fanbase has bad eggs… Why do they do stuff like this that’s way over the line?”

I honestly wish I could tell you… The best guess I can give you? It’s just Philly. This is what they do. Stop being shocked and acting like this is some new revelation… They’ve been doing this for a long time.

You know that friend in your close friend group who is a really lovable guy, but the minute they get drunk they just turn into the most gigantic jackass this world has ever seen? He just starts climbing up poles and throwing half-eaten sandwiches at the elderly? That’s Eagles fans.

You still love your buddy at the end of the night, and the next day when he’s hungover (or there’s not a big game on) he’s gonna be your same old pal. You just knew what was going to happen so you prepared yourself for it.

PS – I really fear for the city of Philadelphia regardless of the outcome of this game… I really think the city might burn to the ground and we can’t afford to lose the Liberty Bell right now…
