In hindsight, I was probably reacting to how irritating my classmates were as much as the Eagles.

I'm way more of a Phillies fan than a fan of the Eagles. Phillies fans can smash heads and vomit on children with the best of them, but Eagles fans lurk within a whole other circle of hell - one that resembles the jail within the old Vet Stadium. I dont blame you for being the lone Redskins fan in the face of depravity. I just question your choice of team.

Haha - once I started going to more games and such and spending more time around the organization, I started to question my choice of team also. We started skipping the first half to tailgate by the end. On the plus side, I rather spontaneously proposed to my wife when we got home exhausted and sad after the Giants game that year and were cooking some supper at 2:00am.

Until the guy vomitted on the little girl, I had always assumed that booing Santa Clause and throwing batteries was as bad as things could get.

I was wrong.

Also, this conversation would not really be complete without that fellow's mugshot. Without further ado, the average Phillies (not Eagles as I originally thought) fan ladies and gentlemen!

I had my day in court yesterday for the filtering ticket on my moped (Reckless Driving - General). My lawyer really helped and brought the ticket down to a Fairfax County infraction which is not reported to the DMV (Failure to Pay Full Time Attention - $100 fine/0 points). In the end, I spent thousands on the lawyer but came out with zero points and nothing on my DMV record

The Cross Country Ruckus Trip Planning continues

Every now and then, we lawyers help people.

That's awesome HBN, and it sounds like it was worth the money, as much as that sucked. Keeping the DMV out of it is amazing.

Hmmm... I thought this was ADVENTURE RIDER. Where the motto is "Ride The World." Oh well.


Philadelphia is a great place.

Home of the cheese steak. And the HOAGIE. A place so great they named a cream cheese after it. A place so great they put one of its most famous citizens on the $100.00 bill. Not even a President, he was so great.

And it is home to The Phillies (Senior Citizens Park) and the Eagles.(who gave up Vick to free agency, btw.) Make sure to bring your dead D cell batteries to throw at opposing team players or home team favorites who might be slacking off.

I used to live there.

It got better after I left.

"...in the area" is used here to mean "within a 20 mile radius of US zip code 22180".



No one should have to go to Philadelphia, ever.
