Lemme Know It's Christmas Time At All

Tonight the Philadelphia Eagles attempt to dismantle the hapless Cleveland Browns in front of a raucous crowd at Lincoln Financial Field. Stu Scott and Santa will be there to witness the carnage.

One good thing about tonight's match-up for the MNF crew is the easy transition they'll have into the whole "booing Santa" story that inevitably comes up anytime a Philly team plays in front of a national audience. Tonight is actually the 40th anniversary of the incident which has been generously used as "Exhibit A" in Philadelphia's longstanding reputation for deplorable fan behavior. Stu has apparently started early:

"SportsCenter’s coverage of Monday Night Football from the city of Brotherly Love, unless Santa Claus is your brother," said ESPN's Stu Scott. "You know, Eagles fans once famously booed Old St. Nick."


Keep that up, Stu, and you'll get a cup full of bum piss thrown at you during the post-game report. Just saying.


Thank you for your continued support of Deadspin. /Eagles chant.
