Somehow, I don't see Terrell Owens' heart inflating to three times its normal size -- his ego on the other hand, perhaps.
It's the rematch we've all been waiting for. If you told Eagles fans they had a chance to win the division after Donovan McNabb went down, we would have thought you were a moron. But here we are, it's Christmas and the Eagles are in Dallas to go up against the Cowboys. If the Eagles win, they put themselves in position to win the NFC East.
On October 8th, the Birds had Donovan McNabb running the show while the Cowboys were "led" by Drew Bledsoe. Jeff Garcia has stepped in and managed the team nicely in Donovan's absence, but Tony Romo has been a tremendous upgrade at QB for the Cowboys. This is the biggest difference between the October 8th meeting in Philly.
If you're looking for any last-minute gift ideas for me... I'd like to see Terrell Owens -- well, I'll let Clarke take it from there.

The improvements have been obvious for the 76ers this season. Just months removed from a franchise-worst 10-72 record, the Sixers have begun to see return on their rebuild with rookie Joel Embiid leading the charge.
December will be a big month for the team as it looks to rise in the Eastern Conference. Attending an upcoming game won’t come attached with big ticket prices, either. With several marquee opponents headed to Wells Fargo Center over the next four weeks, including the Lakers, Celtics and Raptors, fans can find relatively inexpensive ticket prices on the resale market all month long.
On TicketIQ, a ticket search engine that pools tickets and data from over 90 percent of the resale market, the average resale price for 76ers tickets in December is just $58. That makes December among the cheapest months to see the Sixers this season.
With the Lakers in town for a December 16 game, it will be the only 76ers home game this month that commands an average resale price above $100
. On TicketIQ, 76ers vs Lakers tickets own a $112 average and the most inexpensive are listed from $27 each. It will be the Lakers’ sole visit to Philadelphia this season.
The Celtics will be the Sixers’ second most expensive opponent this month, but their December 3 visit is currently averaging nearly half the price the Lakers are seeing when they’re in town two weeks later. As it stands now the average resale price for tickets against the Celtics is $69 with a get-in price of $13.
The Nets, Pelicans and Raptors are all generating similar demand for their respective stops in Philadelphia later this month. With all three teams visiting over a six-day period between December 14 and 20, no game will average over $55 on the secondary market. Tickets start from as low as $7 each to when Anthony Davis and the Pelicans come to town on the 20th.
For those fans with interest in attending the most inexpensive games at Wells Fargo Center this month, the struggling Orlando Magic and Denver Nuggets will serve as the most affordable opponents to see in action in December. The Magic play the Sixers on Friday night, where last-minute 76ers vs. Magic tickets are averaging $43. Their next home game against the Nuggets have an average resale price of just $35.
