Crazy Eagles fan warns “Don’t be flippin’ your sneakers near me!”

OK, a few things here:

1) I had no idea that Buffalo was known as the “City of Good Neighbors.”  So today in Buffalo, it’s the “City of Brotherly Love” against the “City of Good Neighbors?”  Oof.  Weak.  I went to a Catholic grade school (St. Joan of Arc in Marlton, NJ), and we were the Hawks.  Shortly after I moved on to high school, the new principal felt that hawks were a violent bird, and wanted to change it to something less threatening.  Her idea?  The “Purple Peacemakers.”  I can only imagine being in the team huddle in basketball games, and instead of going “1-2-3 HAWKS!” saying “1-2-3 PURPLE PEACEMAKERS!”  My wife, meanwhile, is a teacher.  Her school’s mascot? The Penguins.  Does it get any less threatening than that?  I mean… I sorta get it for the Pittsburgh Penguins because of the ice and all, but for a school in NJ that doesn’t have hockey?  The Purple Peacemakers vs the Penguins would have been quite the lame match-up.  The principal never got her way, by the way.  The community did not want to be the Purple Peacemakers, and harshly objected.

2) I was never a wrestling fan as an adult (loved it when I was 10), but this guy would be awesome in the trash talk bits.  “Well you know Mr. Rogers, I’m a good neighbor, but don’t be flippin’ your sneakers near me!  Put your vest in a closet, nice and neat, because we’re coming to your house and we’re leaving with a W, baby!”  That whole bit both makes sense, and yet no sense at all.  Wait… Does that even make sense?  No?  Good then.

3) Obviously, I risk furthering the stereotype of a typical Eagles fan by posting this, but I don’t even care. This guy is great. Not sure I’d want to hang out with him longer than 2 minutes though.
