No city with all 4 major sports -- football, basketball, baseball & hockey -- has gone longer without a championship than Phila. The local NFL franchise, the Eagles, has not won a title since 1960. But finally, in 2004, following three consecutive wrenching losses in the NFC championship game, the beleaguered Eagles finally had a shot. This book is the hilarious day-by-day account of the passion of Eagles fans, as it threatens to spin out of control in the dizzying buildup to the team’s first appearance in the Super Bowl since 1981. From the Philly’s annual gastronomic fete called the Wing Bowl, to oversize & outlandish Eagles lawn decorations, to hygiene-defying contests for playoff tickets, Eagles enthusiasm is raised to a bizarre new level.
