I am an Eagles fan too. This year, watching the Eagles play is about as exciting as watching this years version of Notre Dame. They both suck! I tried watching the Eagles vs Giants game, but it was tooo frustrating, so I turned off the game and read my Clive Cussler novel, which was much better than the game. If the Eagles don't improve, I'll get alot more reading done this season.

Its going to be a loooong football season for us Eagles fans. Luckily for me, the Eagles poor play hasn't bothered me much, since the Phillies are in the playoffs for the first time since 93.

I'm living in Colorado now, so I am also a Rockies fan. The 2 teams are similar in that they both ovecame a huge defecit late in the season, winning the must win games, and both teams consist mostly of home grown talent. I'll be rooting for the Phillies, but I wouldn't be too dissappointed if the Rockies prevail. I'll be rooting for the winner of this series in the NLCS. GO PHILLIES!

BTW, my all time biggest sports bummer ever is the Joe Carter homerun, while my all time favorite sports memory is the 1980 Pete Rose / Mike Schmidt / Tug McGraw Phillies winning the world series. Can the 2007 Jimmy Rollins / Chase Utley /Ryan Howard Philles do it again? It'll be interesting to find out.

It will be a hell of a series. The two hottest teams in baseball, and two explosive offenses, in the two best hitters' parks, going at it. As always, it will come down to pitching. Both teams have average pitching at best, so who knows. But the Phils' pitching has been good as of late, with Hamels back to form after a stint on the DL, Lohse and Kendrick pitching well, and the 6-7-8 inning combo of Romero, Gordon, and Myers being lights out as of late.

Obviously rooting for the Phils, but if the Rocks win, I'll root them on the rest of the way.

Yeah, forgot about the bands in the stadium seats at college games. Another nice touch that just wouldn't feel right in the NFL.

The question for real sports fans is...Who wouldnt like college over pro? Its well known in the 'sports community' that a majority have always given more respect and enjoy college over pro.

College, more fun to watch and attend. Fans are, for the most part, more civil and passionate as well.

I am way more of a college fan than pros. I think I have a theory as for why the college fans are more civil. see, at a college game, students get drunk and their parents pay for it. at NFL games, parents get drunk, and think to thenselves, damn it, I have to go to work tomorrow to pay for my kid to get drunk on saturday afternoons.
