I was at a farmer’s market somewhere in what could be described as “Redskins Country” (whatever that means) this past weekend. I, of course, was dressed to the nines in full Eagles regalia. As I was walking along with Baby Phan One, a woman at a stand shouts at me, “It’s great to see an Eagles phan here!”
Overjoyed, I ran over to her and struck up a very brief conversation. She told me where she was from and I told her where I was from and then she mentions that she “was going to wear my Eagles lanyard, I mean I reached for it, but…then I grabbed this one…”
To my horror and disgust, she was wearing a Washington Redskins lanyard. FOR WHO? FOR WHAT?? To boost your sales you’ll disown your birthright and throw on the blatant bigotry of the Washington Redskins and then have the audacity to strike up a conversation about how much you love the Philadelphia Eagles with a True Phan like me??
Needless to say, I immediately walked away in mid-conversation never to return again. SMPhH at the nerve of some people. I would expect that kind of treasonous and traitorous nonsense from a lesser city’s fanbase, but not ours.
God Bless the Eagles and Shame On the redskins.
