    a win is a win, even at the hands of the NFL's version of Lebron James.

    How do Cowboys fans really feel about Romo?

    I hope they perform as well as they did when we played them preseason :)

    But in all seriousness, I'm jealous of you having season tickets. There is like a 3-7 year waiting list for Eagles season tickets, which I probably wouldn't get anyways as Philly charges a ridiculous 'real estate licensing' fee of around $1400 on top of the season ticket prices. And getting even single game tickets is next to impossible unless you know someone or want to shell out 3-400$$ on ebay or another 3rd party distributor for them.

    Just saw the rest of your post. Yeah we've had the tix in our family since the 70s, so its been passed down generations. Great seats too and since I don't live in NY anymore, I usually sell them on ebay. Last year the Jets-Patriots game went for $800! If Jets can keep it up, this year will be good for the capital too haha

    I don't think that's age, I mean I am longer a real youngin but even at 29 I still like watching the game on my TV. I will only go to a game if the seats are too good to pass up. Growing up my dad was a big wig in the construction business in Boston so people gave him tickets all the time and they were always awesome seats, like some of the best seats in Fenway Park, TD Garden, old patriots stadium and the new so I became somewhat of a seat snob. But then he decided to start his own company and lost the connections and perks that came with his old job. Plus TV's look so good now and all the different camera's they have, it really is nice to just relax on sundays and watch the games.

    Yea, us Eagles fans are diehard fans, many getting to the stadium at 4 am for a game that starts at 4 pm to tailgate in temps in single digits. Maybe when I was younger, definitely not for me now. Like you said, occasionally going to a game is fine, I ever get tix.. but then your what, spending $8 for a watered down beer or whatever .. restroom lines, traffic, parking ... plus when your at the game you can barely hear the announcers over the crowd. Granted, the excitement of being with a bunch of fellow fans is fun... but, again, like you said.. only occasionally.
