Gotta Love Philly

From Deadspin's description of the scene prior to last night's Eagles-Packers game on Monday Night Football:

"The Philly fans are already in rare form: from all accounts, they were having tons of fun with the ESPN Gameday crew there last night. Reports one reader:

"I do not know if there are any other pictures, video or stories to support this, but the scene behind the MNF pre-game in Philly was uncomfortable at best, scary at worst. TJ was let off the hook. Berman got quite a few YWML screams, including yours truly Steve Young's orientation was questioned, but the chants sent to the Playmaker while on live TV sent Philly fans to a new low, which hard to do. Between the constant 'Dallas Sucks,' ' You Suck,' ' You're an asshole' and the very nice 'Where's your crack pipe?' It was wild. Berman turned to the crowd every couple of seconds to try and shut us up, which enraged the guys Finally, Michael flipped us off, mouthed 'fuck you!' and held up three fingers and counted his "rings," all while Berman and Young were live."

Funny stuff. And next week's Eagles-Cowboys game will make last night look like an episode of "Barney and Friends."

By the way, I loved the announcers' usual loving tributes to Brett Favre. When he got heart in the last two minutes, I kept expecting them to start a candlelight vigil in the booth.
