Who is the Armagen Eagle (rhetorical question)?
By now, you may/may not have read some of my posts. I cut my teeth on the Philadelphia Eagles Message Board (EMB). Some of you may be wondering why I brought up that detail. Well, if you can survive on the EMB, you are thick-skinned, tough as nails, and willing to be chewed out by your own brother/sister fans. I was initially trained to strike back "at-all-costs," to defend my position. However, visiting other team message boards, establishing a dialogue with other team fans and moderators, I have mellowed out. I realize that other team fans feel exactly about their respectives teams, as I do about the Eagles.
First I'll talk some general smack (Note to the Mod Squad): this is not directed toward any specific team; the team names have been changed to cleanup the post). When I first registered on the EMB, the following was my introduction ...
Eagle Fans are soldiers ...over the years of romping, stomping, hell, death and destruction; many of us were born in bomb craters, our parents was an M-16 rifle, and a fire-breathing dragon. Each moment that we live, we'll talk smack to other opponents; but we'll congratulate you if you played tough.
We're roguish looking, roving Eagles soldiers from the streets of North, South, and West Philly. We're cocky, self-centered, overbearing, and we donít Know the meaning of the word fearó for we are fear itself! We're an Eagles green amphibious monster made of blood and guts--who arose from the alley ways, and dead-end streets. Our sole purpose in life is to become a championship team We'll die a glorious death on the football battle fields giving all for Mom, Cheesesteaks, Hoagies, Waterice, soft pretzels, apple pie, and the American way.
We live like Division Champs--warriors by day, lovers by night, American by birth, and Eagles Fans by choice, by God!
Again, I've mellowed out since my initiation as an Eagles fan, but I'm still an Eagles Fan!
I'd like to know something about how other team fans were forged--what being a ___________fan means to you. What stuff is your team fans made of?
Also, who are your
A). Super stars B). Playmakers?
