Philadelphia Prepares For Battle ... And It's Never Too Early

Apropos of nothing, we've decided to attach a picture of Donovan McNabb doing shots to this post. Forgive us.

We know we're still five days away, but honestly, we really can't overstate our excitement for Terrell Owens returning to Philadelphia this weekend. We don't mean to imply that this might be the single greatest moment in Philadelphia fan history ... but everything's breaking their way.

• The Eagles are in first place, and the Cowboys are probably their main obstacle toward staying there.

• The Philly fans are already in rare form: from all accounts, they were having tons of fun with the ESPN Gameday crew there last night. Reports one reader:

"I do not know if there are any other pictures, video or stories to support this, but the scene behind the MNF pre-game in Philly was uncomfortable at best, scary at worst. TJ was let off the hook. Berman got quite a few YWML screams, including yours truly Steve Young's orientation was questioned, but the chants sent to the Playmaker while on live TV sent Philly fans to a new low, which hard to do. Between the constant 'Dallas Sucks,' ' You Suck,' ' You're an asshole' and the very nice 'Where's your crack pipe?' It was wild. Berman turned to the crowd every couple of seconds to try and shut us up, which enraged the guys Finally, Michael flipped us off, mouthed 'fuck you!' and held up three fingers and counted his "rings," all while Berman and Young were live."

• Last night, the Lincoln Financial "Fan Of The Game" ... was ejected.

It's enough to inspire the KSK guys to make a list of potentially lethal items to throw at Owens, noting that "you have been presented with a golden opportunity to create a landmark moment in the history of sporting violence. ... You possess that all-too-rare combo of stupidity and obliviousness to pull it off."

Oh man, oh man, oh man, we absolutely cannot wait.
