    Yes, this is way, wayyyyy early!

    I've already got flight, room and ticket booked. (and three vacation days towards the adventure)

    Is anyone else going, or can suggest a tailgate to attend? :texflag:

    Been thinking about this one for 4 yrs Dan. THEN, the sch came out and I found out it's on a Thursday night. Traffic in Philly is hell on a Sunday, can't imagine what it would be like on a Thurs. Eagle fans are not always that friendly either, not that that would stop me. Been chatting with jgl35 some, and just not sure I want to chance going. BUT, in case I change my mind, where are you staying? Where are your tickets located?

    I'll be at the Sheraton Society Hill Link, got a ticket Row 1, Sec 113. I'm making a mini-vacation out of this, as I've always wanted to see "Historic Philadelphia".

    We have a few people who are coming in from New York City for this game. We will have to communicate closer to the game and meet up.

    We are probably taking the SEPTA once we are in Philly from the 30th Street Station.

    Yay! It'd be nice to see at least one other friendly face there!

    I live 45 min from the stadium and will not be attending.
    Word of warning-I would not suggest trying to tailgate unless you have a friend who is an Eagles fan going with you. The fans here will be in your face from the moment you walk past-unless you are planning on attending without showing your Texan Colors.
    I attended the Eagles-Saints game last year and they were very rude, vulgar and had a habit of throwing stuff toward the backs of Saints fans.

    Philadelphia is a great place to visit and see some great history. If you're interested you can still mail a letter from the first post office in the US.

    PM me if you want any other info about the area.

    Hope you survive the game and get to enjoy it.

    That's my issue with the Colts game. Affordable seats available are in the friggin rafters. I was gonna make a roadie out of that one, but, guess I'll be watching from home.

    I'm still leary about the Eagles game. I've wanted to go to this one for 4 yrs, but, my gut feeling tells me to pass. I'm a little to old to deal with fans that might send me tumbling down some stairs, or something worst. Not a trip to be made alone.

    I think the wife and I are in for the road trip as well since I've missed so many home games this year. Where are those that are going sitting so I'll know where to look for tix?

    T-Minus 13 days and counting...not quite as geared up to see the game as I once was, but I'll have fun nonetheless.

    I can hope tha Vick pulls a groin can't I? :hurrah:

    Dan,

    Please don't let me see you on YouTube beating the crap out of Philly fan!! I'm sure he was an asshat, talking s**t, but just walk away man! Walk away.


    Shout out to Blue Crewers and Bull Penners. I am starting a collection for Dan's bail money.

    I'll try, but if I get pelted with anything, all bets are off!... I'll be right where the Visitor tunnel is at.

    So - Blue #80 Jersey or Red #90 Jersey? May have to look into some face paint for this one too!

    Good Luck.
    Philly is on my list of "not worth the risk in attending" cities.

    I wouldn't go to the game (and I live an hour from the stadium) but the city is fun. As long as you know what areas to stay out of.

    You should be alright. I lived in the Philly area and went to several Eagles games wearing Oilers gear. The Philly fans don't have issues with Houston. However if you want to be safe, do what I used to do. Get a plain white shirt and have the words "Dallas Sucks" printed on the front. Wear it under your jersey. If anyone starts giving you flak just lift up your jersey. The fans there will high five you. Actually that stunt earned me several free beers one game.

    I have a call into my insurance agent to see how my life insurance policy looks.
