Last season at BGN, I helped organize Eagles tailgates for Birds fans who might not have had their own spot to hang out before going into games at the Linc. It was awesome. I flew the Bleeding Green Nation flag high and with pride, drank some cold ones, ate some scrapple for breakfast and cheesesteaks for lunch and mingled with my fellow Eagles fans. I had people from Maine to North Carolina and everywhere in between come through. It was a kelly and midnight green melting pot of Eagles glory.
Obviously, that won’t be happening this year. Hell, tailgating as we know it might never exist again. It deeply pains me to say that, as it’s become an essential element of my Birds fandom. The mystique of walking into the stadium, starting an umpteen amount of “E-A-G-L-E-S” chants and riding the escalator up to the top level of the Linc probably won’t happen until 2021 at the earliest.
I need another outlet for my fandom if I’m not going to be screaming at the refs and saying, “Ayyeee, c’mon, Carson!” an infinite amount of times from my seat. I’m going to try something different this year: I’m going to utilize BGN Radio Twitch streams to have a live running commentary during Birds games.
Do you hate Kenny Albert, want to mute him and listen to me instead? Awesome. Do you want to see me go supernova when Jalen Reagor score his first career touchdown later this season? Fantastic. Do you simply just want to hate-watch me because I’m gigantic idiot? Also entirely understandable.
Throw our Twitch channel a follow (@bgn_radio) and come hang with me on Sundays! I’ll probably hop on around 15-30 minutes before every Birds game and get my engines nice and revved up. I also signed up for Sunday Ticket this season, so I’ll be in full dual-TV mode consuming as much football as possible and hopefully providing you with as much entertainment as possible too.
Go Birds, baby.
had to repost: I’ll be doing live streams during Birds games this season for @BleedingGreen & @BGN_Radio on Twitch!
