Sports Guy is scared

Sports Guy is scared

Max from around the horn thinks Super 5 may be a better QB than Mr. Brady. (windows media/fox)  Lots of videos through that link, including Donovan talking in Jax and Tom Arnold ripping on FredEx.

The sports guy knows better than most New England fans, he fears the Eagles.  Is there such a thing as a New Englander who cares more about the Patriots than the Red Sox?  You try to talk about Eagles fans and Patriots fans and they bring up the Yankees?  Prolly too much chowdah.

4. I hung out with some Philly fans and even enjoyed their company. Despite my obvious bias toward the Pats, I have always liked Philly fans -- no other fan base has brought us more comedy, charisma and general anguish over the past 25 years. Six years ago, I wrote a column for my old Web site about the "20 Worst Sports Cities in America" and made Philly No. 1, listing the obvious reasons -- they booed Mike Schmidt, they're always unhappy, they seem to thrive on things going wrong, and so on. Then I braced for the inevitable deluge of angry e-mails from Philly fans ... which never came. If anything, they agreed with me. You have to love a fan base that admits they're miserable. In fact, if I was forced to choose any NFL franchise to take down the budding Pats dynasty -- I'm not saying I'd be happy about it, but if I had to choose -- I'd pick the Jets first and the Eagles second. (Just thinking about this makes me nervous. Forget I mentioned this.)

The 4 best non-Joe Buck calls of Jake Elliott's walk-off field goal

Sometimes the internet is a wonderful place.

Since basically, no one wants to listen to Joe Buck call a thrilling Eagles 61-yard game-winning field goal, we scoured the web to find four other amazing versions of Sunday’s sensational ending to the Eagles' 27-24 victory over the New York Giants.

1. Merrill Reese and Mike Quick on 94.1 WIP
The legendary voice of the Eagles since 1977, Reese, along with former Eagle Mike Quick, delivers a call that will shoot shivers up your spine.

2. Spanish Broadcaster Ricky Ricardo
A longtime voice of the Phillies and now the Spanish voice of the New York Yankees, Ricardo delivers with this enthusiastic call.
3. Celine-a-Scene
A phenomenon that has taken over the web, adding inspirational music from Titanic makes everything just a little bit better.
4. *Record Scratch* *Freeze Frame*
A staple movie cliché from the '80s and '90s, the record scratch, freeze frame plays itself perfectly in this moment.
