Eagles Fan Shows Her Spirit

Eagles Fan Shows Her Spirit

The Phillies tried to roll out their idea for a "Goosebumps" marketing campaign before this season began.  We were unimpressed and scared.  On the other side of Pattison Ave, the Eagles appear to be giving their fans more than just goosebumps.

These photos were added to The 700 Level's flickr group last week and I decided to email the flickr user to get a better idea for the inspiration behind the photos.  The photographer, Cheryl, is a body painter.  Her subject -- and the huge Eagles fan -- is Pam.  We tracked Pam down for some questions.

The700Level: What was the inspiration behind this paint job? And why Kearse, he seems like an unlikely choice?

Pam: I wish I had some interesting inspiration as to why I chose to do this.
It's as simple as catching up with a friend! Also, being painted feels
awesome! It's almost therapeutic! I originally was planning on her
doing McNabb, buuuut, she talked me out of it! I don't mind supporting
Kearse, he never seems to let me down week to week.

T7L: Did you wear this in public or to the local bar on game day? Get any good reactions?  I'd think you'd be quite popular.

Pam: I don't go out in public painted either. Those pictures were taken at
Cheryl's house. I don't think I could do it to be honest! I am
comfortable with my body, but I am not comfortable with the sexual
attention I'm sure I would receive. Maybe for some great seats at a
game I could do it! I have never been to an Eagles game believe it or
not. Being a full-time students, funds are tight and I usually sit at
home with a friend and order in.

T7L: Was this a one time thing or do you plan to make this some sort of Sunday tradition?

Pam: This painting was only done once. Cheryl wanted the practice and I'm
always a willing volunteer. Don't think it's going to become a Sunday
tradition because it's very time consuming! Maybe I'll show some more
Philly pride when the Flyers start up!

T7L: Somebody get this nice young lady tickets to an Eagles game, pronto.

Thanks to Pam for the Q&A.  Her myspace can be found here.  And for the record, she predicts the Eagles will win by a David Akers field goal tonight against the 'Skins.

Tonight's lineup: WIth only RHP left, could Ryan Howard start every game?

Tonight's lineup: WIth only RHP left, could Ryan Howard start every game?

If healthy, Ryan Howard is expected to start all three games in the Phillies' final series of the season Sept. 2-4 at home against the Mets.

He might also start the entire Braves series.

The Phillies' final six games are all against right-handed starting pitchers: Julio Teheran, Mike Foltynewicz and Josh Collmenter in Atlanta; Robert Gsellman, Bartolo Colon and Noah Syndergaard with the Mets. That could mean six starts for Howard before his time with the Phillies expires.

Howard's batting average has been below .200 for practically the entire season, but he's been much better since the All-Star break, hitting .259/.325/.598 with 11 homers, five doubles and 25 RBIs in 123 plate appearances (see game notes). He went 0 for 6 in his last two starts but homered in each of his two previous starts to reach 23 for the third year in a row.

Here's the Phillies' full lineup Tuesday against Teheran:

1. Cesar Hernandez, 2B
2. Roman Quinn, LF
3. Odubel Herrera, CF
4. Maikel Franco, 3B
5. Ryan Howard, 1B
6. Cameron Rupp, C
7. Freddy Galvis, SS
8. Aaron Altherr, RF
9. Jerad Eickhoff, P

Matt Kemp is out of the Braves' lineup.

1. Ender Inciarte, CF
2. Adonis Garcia, 3B
3. Freddie Freeman, 1B
4. Nick Markakis, RF
5. Tyler Flowers, C
6. Jace Peterson, 2B
7. Dansby Swanson, SS
8. Mallex Smith, LF
9. Julio Teheran, P

Howie Roseman makes complete 180 with latest roster move

Howie Roseman makes complete 180 with latest roster move

Howie Roseman solidified his hold on Executive of the Year Tuesday when he re-signed guard Darrell Greene to the practice squad and released JaCorey Shepherd from the practice squad. Shepherd was signed on Wednesday when Greene was previously released.

The Eagles were undefeated with Shepherd on the practice squad this year.

But they're also undefeated with Greene on the practice squad.

Roseman did not return messages requesting comment about Shepherd's seven-day stint with the Eagles.

Once Roseman realized he had actually NOT signed Lito Sheppard, the deal was voided.

The Eagles don't play this coming weekend so we were hard-pressed for any actual news.
