Eagles choose most embarrassing warmup song possible for NFC Championship
By Adam Weinrib
Thought you couldn’t find a more unbearable combination than Philly and “Dancing on My Own” (not the Robyn one, the Sad Man Cover) during the Phillies’ surprise run to the World Series? Well, think again! After defeating the NY Giants last weekend, the Eagles are moving on to the NFC Championship Game with arms wide open.
If only someone could’ve prevented this. Looking at you, 4th & 8 call that changed everything (be nice, we’re still coping).
During Friday’s practice at home while the Eagles awaited the 49ers’ arrival, Philly was spotted taking a page out of the Marlins’ book and stretching to Creed’s “Higher” in their own attempts to soar.
That’s right. Somehow, the Iggles have found the only song less intimidating than “Fly Eagles Fly.” Honestly, it’s impressive.
The only question remaining: Who’s behind this? Nick Sirianni, or Jason Kelce? Because it’s one of the two.
Eagles warming up to Creed before NFC Championship Game … how could the NY Giants let this happen?
Maybe the Eagles will throw it back to the late ’90s again over the weekend and disappoint in a home NFC Title Game. Fingers crossed! Bring out Todd Pinkston and Scott Stapp for a dual coin flip.
Of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that Creed’s previous NFL history mostly revolves around a Thanksgiving Game concert that they played at Cowboys Stadium while dressed in Dallas jerseys back in 2001. Is this really the energy the Eagles want to enter the most important game of their season draped in? Apparently!
God, it’s just going to get more annoying each week that the NY Giants didn’t show up to their third faceoff of the year with Philly, isn’t it? Blood’s already boiling every time a slow-motion clip of Sirianni screaming gets replayed. Now we’ve got to deal with Christian rock. It was so much better when the only Human Clay on the Eagles’ sideline was Lane Johnson’s gut.
Gut feeling? Jalen Hurts looks good again on Sunday, Brock Purdy looks overwhelmed by the pass rush, and the Eagles triumph in spite of the circumstances they created at Friday’s practice.
Then it’s on to the Super Bowl, where Philly will request an alternative halftime show to Rihanna featuring P.O.D.
