Eagles Fans Went Full Asshole And It Worked

Earlier in the playoffs, we had a small discussion over whether it was better to be a mopey fatalist of a fan who always braces for the worst, or to be an oblivious, preening asswipe… the kind of fan that will talk shit even when they’re down by 40. Well, now that the Eagles have won the Super Bowl, I have my answer. These fans were arrogant as shit during the entire run-up to the Super Bowl, even though there was NO historical evidence backing them up. And yet, it worked! Somehow these people got REWARDED for their reckless arrogance. I have been doing fanhood all wrong, and that is the subject of this week’s Deadcast.

But is there more? [Jim Ross voice] BAH GAWD, there is! Producer Jorge Corona joins Roth and me to wrap up the Super Bowl, plus we answer YOUR Funbag questions about Josh McDaniels, Malcolm Butler, proper alphabet ordering, farts, and more.
