As 20, 000 plus Eagles fans gather to watch a team with great expectations go through training camp everyday, their star free-agent, Terrell Owens, knows that he must play a crucial role in fulfilling those expectations. The Eagles fans are aware of this, as they shout out choruses of “T.O.” chants frequently during practices. They are aware of this as they camp out overnight to get Owens’ autograph. They are aware of this as they buy out the Eagles tickets for the entire season, in a matter of 20 minutes.
Terrell Owens arrives in Philly to play alongside McNabb and replace the likes of butterfingers Pinkston and Thrash. Will Owens be enough to push Philly over the hump and lead them to Super Bowl glory?
Well I’ve officially seen it all. From the pope watching American inner city kids break dance to transexuals allowed to compete in the OLYMPICS, the apocalypse is officially upon us.

If football were like Pretty Woman, well, then we all have lots of problems. But I can’t help but imagine Terrell Owens walking into the city of Philadelphia to talk to the fans.

Two years ago, the Eagles almost pulled off a stunning upset at St. Louis. But they weren’t supposed to win that game so, while the fans were disappointed, we knew that this was an improving team. Last year, we were supposed to beat the Bucs at home but got outcoached. It was like a gut shot followed by a kick to the groin. This year, we were believers but last year’s pain numbed us so much that losing to Carolina wasn’t really that painful.

After the Packers beat Seattle last Sunday, Cris Collingsworth noted that there were angels floating above Lambeau Field. I love how the media will latch on to a story and beat it into the ground. As if sports announcers weren’t in love with Brett Favre already, this “charmed team” bit has them so far up his ass, he’s gonna have to use Colon Blow to get them out.
