Eagles fans all across the country enjoyed yesterday's dethroning of the reigning champions on their home turf. Our football foodie Mark may have enjoyed it just a bit more than the rest of us because he had this delicious meal to savor during the victory.
From Mark's flickr page:
I went steakhouse classic here. Grilled (outside. Yes, I fired up the
Weber grill) New York strip that I sliced and laid atop some red potato
smashed potatoes (made with garlic, heavy cream, blue cheese and
crumbled smoked bacon). On the side, some crispy baked onion rings.
In the Chickie & Pete's glass, Brooklyn Brewery Brown Ale.
Needless to say, it all went down pretty smooth. I'm not really a
mashed/smashed potatoes fan, but, man, these were some of the best I've
ever had (can I say that about something I myself cooked?).
And with the Eagles laying a solid 23-11 win on the suddenly overrated
"NY" Giants, it went down even better. No repeat for you, Giant fans!
Goes down even better as you saw the "Ah Geeze" Eli Manning face and
the "Whattttt happened???" Tom Coughlin face.
Here's to hoping we get to see what kind of feast Mark pulls out for the Super Bowl.
The Eagles have signed former Dolphins offensive guard Dallas Thomas to a reserve/futures contract.
Thomas, 27, was drafted by the Dolphins in the third round (No. 77) out of Tennessee in 2013 and was with them until this past season.
In his four-year career, Thomas has played in 37 games with 26 starts. He started nine games in 2014 and started all 16 games at left guard in 2015.
Thomas (6-5, 315 pounds) and 2014 third-rounder Billy Turner were both released in October after a poor showing against the Titans. While Thomas was the team's starter at left guard in 2015, rookie Laremy Tunsil took over that position with the Dolphins in 2016.
In 2015, when Thomas started all 16 games at left guard, he was ranked as the worst guard in football by ProFootballFocus. He gave up 10 sacks, 10 QB hits and 36 QB hurries.
Mike Trout sure does win a lot when the Eagless beat the Cowboys.
Not only did the Los Angeles Angels outfielder get a touchdown ball from Carson Wentz during the Eagles win over the Cowboys to cap off the season, but he also won a bet on the game with a friend.
Turns out, Trout had some sort of bet with DJ Cottrell, whose Twitter profile says he is from Trout's hometown of Millville, NJ. Cottrell is likely a Cowboys fan and came up on the losing end.
"The fact I have to wear an entire Eagles uniform to the gym for a week is going to be the death of me," he Tweeted on Tuesday.
Then he posted a photo of himself in the ridiculous football uniform while posing alongside Trout.
It's good to be Mike Trout. Not so much a Dallas Cowboys fan these days.
