Eddie & Jackie 2015
My brother is a HUGE Philadelphia Eagles Fan. I bought him tickets to a November game in 2002 at the old stadium as his High School Graduation gift. He had already signed his Marine Corp enlistment papers and my normal gift of a Bed Bath & Beyond gift card to graduating seniors didn’t seem like a good fit. I wasn’t sure if Parris Island ran a shuttle for the recruits to the local Bed, Bath & Beyond!
This was back before online ticket sales so I had to call a guy who knew a guy who told me to bring cash and meet him in an alley behind a gym in Oakland. Being the awesome sister that I am…I did it and came home with 2 Eagles Tickets.
My brother and my dad headed to the game after Thanksgiving dinner and when they arrived back in Pittsburgh Eddie said it was the best day of his life. Being from Pittsburgh you don’t meet many Eagles Fans so having the opportunity to watch the game with an entire stadium of people chanting “Fly Eagles Fly” was awesome!
I seem to jinx teams when I watch their games so I just checked the score periodically last night and could not believe the score in the 3rd quarter. In the 4th quarter I started getting texts from Jackie, my brother’s wife, and I knew it must be good. The Eagles are going to the Super Bowl!
