While I was musing about the upcoming NFL season the other day, I said to myself, "Self, you are really lucky to be a Philadelphia Eagles fan." Not only are they an organization that consistently makes good sense with their off field decisions, they provide you with excitement on the field too. And the best part about being an Eagles fan is that even if you talk sports with a fan of another NFL team, they bear no ill will, no animosity, no prejudice whatsoever toward Philly fans or our football team. I saw just how easy I had it as a fan of the Birds, compared to the hard time I would get if I liked another team, like say the Dallas Cowboys. And it was only after this realization that I came up with the great idea of writing a thank you letter to Eagles President Joe Banner for all the effort he puts into making the life of every Eagles fan so fun and carefree.
