Well Thanks A Lot Ed

It was bound to happen. Philly fans again getting blasted for their booing. This time the Palin puck drop was the event, but the national media of course brought up our good buddy Santa again...

From the New York Daily News: "She may be the most famous hockey mom in the country, but that did not buy Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin much affection in the City of Brotherly Love last night.

Philadelphia sports fans, who once booed Santa Claus at an Eagles game 40 years ago greeted Palin in similar fashion when she dropped the ceremonial first puck at the Fleyers' season opener..."

Thanks Mr. Sinder for bringing politics into our games. Is nothing safe from the campaign idiocies??

Struggling Economy Hitting the Gridiron: Two former Eagles, trying to sell their Moorestown cribs, are feeling the economic pinch. The asking price on Terrell Owens' place just dropped to $2,675,000, and Jevon Kearse's has been marked down to $2,452,500. And regarding a current Eagle living in Moorestown: Public records show that the real estate tax assessment for Donovan McNabb shot from $628,800 in 2007 to $1,332,100 in 2008.

So I guess you can say that Philly fans believe in John McCain and Sarah Palin about as much as they believe in Santa Clause!
