In less than 24 hours, I will board a flight from Los Angeles, CA to Philadelphia, PA. That's a hell of a long trip and an expensive overall experience to see a game that all those pundits and prognosticators thought would be a blowout and a big Iggles win before the season started. Admittedly, I figured McNabb would be injured by week 3 like he always is and as part of my NFL stadium tour (visit a new stadium every year with an old college friend), I opted to check out the relatively new Linc and visit a city of rich history that I have never been to. I'm sitting on the visitors bench side, row 5, around the 30 yard line in case anyone else is in the area. Looking forward to seeing the Chiefs pull a big road upset and I realize I will have to keep my alcohol consumption and resulting Tomahawk Chop a bit under wraps this weekend in order to ensure my own personal safety. That is, unless I can find a few more scrappy Chiefs fans willing to show up in Philly in red and gold and show the Eagles fans unfettered passion not afraid of a few green men.
So here it is, The Roll Call. Who is gonna be in Philly this weekend?
