Let's Drink to Hating Dallas

If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's our hatred of the Dallas Cowboys. And if there's one thing we should all agree on, it's our love of the Philadelphia Eagles and the wonderful fans. From the days when the fans booed and threw snowballs at Santa Claus, pelted Cowboys coach Jerry Johnson with more snowballs, and cheered as Michael Irvin lay motionless on the field after a career-threatening injury, the Philly fan is notoriously nasty. And I love it! What other group would force a city to put a courtroom and jail in the stadium itself? I even saw Philly fans at a 76ers game boo as a guy was proposing to his girlfriend in the stands. Ruthless AND wise.

So as a Philly fan, I of course am rooting for them in Saturday's playoff game. Unfortunately, I think Dallas may have a better playing team right now, so I need to make sure I have plenty of beer just in case the wrong team wins. And I have to keep it real and drink some Philly area beers. So I went through the library and picked out some Yards ESA, and a collection of (how fitting) Victory beer including Prima Pils, Hop Devil IPA, Golden Monkey, St. Victorious Dopplebock, and Storm King Imperial Stout. I hope I don't have to drink all of these beers while drowning my sorrows, but I will do it win or lose. And if the Eagles do somehow lose, my hatred of every other team will be further fueled, just like every real Philly fan out there.
