I am all up for heading to an Eagles game dressed up as NFL fans and doing a ridiculous barbecue before the game while doing this a lot:



Also would need to shout "Woo yeah!" a lot

Preferably a game against Leinster A in Donnybrook in order to cut down on travel

Fantastic Superbowl....even if I did throw in the towel at half time. I was convinced that the Patriots would come back and close it out. Massive balls from the Eagles and Foles to come from behind in the 4th to get the job done.

The catch from AJ for the first TD was one of the best catches of the season.

Foles can now go somewhere for a stupid contract, far above his talent level and retire in a few years with an extra $25m in the bank all based on the past 6 weeks.

Except you'd have some D4 harridan with a name like Fionnuala O'Carroll-Kelly calling the Gords and scolding you for having an unlicensed outdoor barbecue, and the smoke ruining her 6 million thread Egyptian cotton sheets that Mariana, the Filipino maid, had just hung out to dry.

Whereas if you came to Galway Fiona would be out to join you with a bottle of Bucky...

The Bears let Jeffrey walk out the door last year. Watching him have an MVP level first half was sad.

The Eagles have Foles under contract next year. They'll get a decent trade offer for him.

It would have taken big money to keep him and his overall performances this season have been good but not great despite having Wentz throwing him the ball. He didn't have a single game this season where he had over 100 receiving yards. He had a near identical season to Agholor.

He secured himself a big contract in December but I bet he wish he was only sitting down to negotiate now after the playoff run he had.

It's more so that the Bears have one of the worst receiving corps in the league. They have cap room.

As for the game in general while it was entertaining the complete absence of defensive plays/stops actually made the game a bit on the farcical side. The Eagles D in particular will be very disappointed as unlike the Pats they had a good reputation.

Welcome to an expensive world. I am jealous of people who are content with cheaper headphones. I can never go back.

I picked up a pair of Sony MDR-ZX770N with the active noise cancelling for the office. Strongly contemplating getting the Bose QuietComforts but just can't bring myself to spend that much money.

Makes a huge difference not having to listen to all the chatter around you though.

They are a lot cheaper now than when I got them about 2 years ago.

35s are the newer model, they’re wireless.
