But that hasn't stopped thousands of Philadelphia Eagles fans from getting down to the parking lots early to get in the traditional activities of grilling, playing cornhole, drinking some frosty beers... and soaking in a hot tub?!??!
Yes, that's right. One group of Birds fans thought with the temperatures being so damn cold today that the only way to stay warm would be to bring a hot tub down to the parking lots.
NBC 10 was smart enough to send a reporter out there to talk to the guy. We're currently waiting on video. So check back in a few. [Update: video, boom]
As of the writing of this post just before 4:00 pm, the temp in Philly is 27 degrees but could go down to 23 or 24 before kickoff against the New Orleans Saints. That's without the wind chill.
Hopefully this crazy dude dries off by then. And puts on a shirt.
Please put on a shirt.
