While the Cardinals are no longer in the NFC East, Arizona and Philadelphia seem to still have a pretty close rivalry. The Eagles are set to travel to Arizona in Week 8 and they won't be alone for their showdown with the Cardinals. It turns out that hundreds (if not thousands) of Eagles fans will be flocking to the desert for this big matchup and they are meeting up early to show their pride.
Rockbar Inc. (in collaboration with local fan club Eagles West) is set to host a tailgate party on Saturday in Scottsdale. The event will feature drink specials, contests, giveaways, merchandise and more. This is a great opportunity for traveling fans to hang out with fellow Eagles supporters and have a great time doing it. It's also a chance to find a group to tailgate with on Sunday.
BGN's own Mike Kaye and Dan Klausner will be in attendance, as will our friend PhilaDehlia with a few more surprise guests. (Breaking: BGN's Mark Saltveit will be joining the party and giving away a couple of copies of his book, "The Tao of Chip Kelly.") BGN Radio will be capturing soundbites and pictures of the pep rally, so make sure to stop by and have your voice heard.
