I'm sure everyone here is as bummed as I am bout Sunday's loss... But I'm moving on, in the form of moving backwards one week. I'd say the I'm posting this because I want to cheer myself up some by remembering the blowout win against the #2 AFC South Jacksonville Jaguars... but the honest reason is that my card reader wasn't working and I couldn't find the cable needed to pull pictures off my camera; until now.. and I'm just starting to go through the pics... And one I knew I took would've been my personal favorite (DeSean Jackson's TD), because it happened right infront of me... But the picture wasn't meant to be... The "would be totally awesome" photo after the jump...
DOWN IN FRONT!!!!!!!!!!
As anyone who follows my spirited (probably psychotic) ramblings the last couple weeks knows: I finally went to my first Eagles game. Jacksonville is bout 2.5 hours from my current home... Tickets are cheap, home crowd is kind.. and away fans were in abundance. I had tickets in the lower bowl (Row P, so 15 or so rows from the field) in a corner endzone. I probably could have moved closer to the 50 gone up to the 200s and paid even less.. but I found out that 130 would be packed with fellow Eagle fans. My younger brother drove up from SW Florida to met my wife and I, and all three of us took an early morning drive north to Jacksonville.. to meet up with other fans for a tailgate party thrown by http://www.onecrazyfan.com/ (a group of Eagle fans that put together Road Trips for away games, I'd definitely recommend them if you are thinking of watching the team out of town).
Even though I blew the chance at an awesome photo, I had a great time.. the funny photo just adds to the memory.. I'm not a pro photographer, and it shows as I was paying more attention to the actual event then my view finder...
...Atleast I got the celebration... kind of (just a little blurry)
