E A G L E S - Eagles!


That was the Philadelphia Eagle's Song (NFL team). The fans sing it before the match and everytime the team scores. Me, Lawrence and Deliang had the luck to obtain tickets (very hard to get at a low price) for a Philadelphia Eagles game at the Lincoln financial fiend (home). It cost $69 for a standing ticket, but it was definitely worth it.

Philadelphia Eagles vs Washington Redskins

The Eagles are on a rebound from a horrible 2005 season and right now they are definitely showing improvements.

Going to an NFL is an experience in itself. Its a complete festival starting several hrs before the game itself. Americans will drive their SUVs, RVs, Pickups to the stadium carpark, set up tentages, BBQ pits, ice boxes and have what is called a Tailgate party. This is a tradition every game, not only for special games but EVERY game.

Tailgate Party

Stadium in sight

Inside the stadium... it was amazing.. there was a live band, lots of makeshift shops and food stalls. OMG it was like some sporting finals back in Singapore.

Inside the stadium

The introduction of the Players was also crazy, it was like watching WWE(world wrestling entertainment). The visiting team was greeted with the usual boos and jeers. And as for the Home team..... there was FIREWORKS, CHEERLEADERS and SMOKE oh My!

In commeration of veteran's day

They literally fire off fireworks like crazy, at the start, just before kickoff, everytime a touchdown is scored and when the Quarterback(the guy who leads the offense) is introduced. Donovan Mcnabb is the quarterback for the eagles and he is treated like a hero here.

The game was a real treat, the Eagles showed lots of power on defense and restricted the Redskins to ONLY 3 points. Offensively we were treated to a really good 1st half. Mcnabb threw an amazing 82 yard to Donte Stallworth for a touchdown. It was the eagles first offensive play and they scored in 12 seconds! WOW!!! In all the eagles scored 2 more touchdowns and 2 kicks for a victory of 27 -3.
