Eagle Fans Tailgate For Two Hours Before Remembering Team is on Bye

PHILADELPHIA – A trio of diehard Philadelphia Eagle fans tailgated at Lincoln Financial Field  for nearly two hours Sunday morning, consuming more than a dozen bratwursts and a case of Dale’s Pale Ale before one of the group remembered that this was the team’s bye weekend.

"The parking lot did seem really empty. We just assumed they were having trouble selling tickets."

“The parking lot did seem really empty. We just assumed they were having trouble selling tickets.”

 

“We got there nice and early, like we always do,” said Kyle “Thrasher” Thompson. “We set up, got the grill going, cranked some Van Halen on the stereo. Something like two hours go by, and Buzzsaw (friend Bobby “Buzzsaw” Bogdanski) looks around and goes, ‘Hey guys? Does it seem kind of dead around here?’ So then Stubby (cousin Otto Steubans) checks his fantasy football magazine, and says, ‘Holy crap on a corndog, it’s week twelve. They’re on a bye, you guys!’”

 

Thompson claims the group has suffered from similar memory lapses in the past.

 

“A few weeks ago, we downed three cases of Pabst before we realized the team was on the road at Oakland that week.  And then there was another time we set up and partied for around three hours, drinking, eating, and shouting ‘Fly Eagles Fly,’ before someone remembered that it was the middle of May. And a Tuesday.”

 

Added Bogdanski, “I guess we just really like tailgating, is all.”

    Article was dumb, especially for the second time. The comments on the article, however, are hilarious.

    What a phony story. Didn’t they realize that the parking booths were closed when they didn’t pay to get in? And who was supposed to bring the tickets for that particular game? SOMEONE would have had to have the tickets. This whole story is BS—complete fabrication.

    Holy crap people. EVERY STORY ON THIS WEBSITE IS A JOKE! It is a humor website and nothing should be taken serously. Unless its seriously funny.
