PART OF WHY THEY ASKED ME TO DO THEM EAGLES COMMERCIALS WAS BECAUSE THEY ASKED WHAT MY FAVORITE PLAY WAS.....AT THAT TIME...... IT WAS PEPPER JOHNSON GOES FLYIN FROM BYARS BURYING HIM. I KNOW IT WAS ONLY A BLOCK, BUT DAMN IT WAS A THING OF BEAUTY.

https://youtu.be/61Ou9rM971Q

ALSO.....1974 STANLEY CUP......OT GOAL BOBBY CLARKE. THAT PASS BY COWBOY BILL FLETT WAS A THING OF BEAUTY.

That series taught me that life as a Philly sports fan was always going to be a wild roller coaster ride. Winning that series made it seem possible that they could actually win it all, and they did!

Gotta be top three for me Strip sack and last play failed Hail Mary are right up there.

Of course, the Eagles are the only Philly team I seriously follow. Other than the Eagles, I'd put AI stepping over Lue in the Finals on my list. And something from the Villanova / Georgetown game. Not that I was a Nova fan but a great upset.

My favorite non-Eagles moment ever. The loudest moment in Spectrum history (at the 1:15 mark):


(I was at the Genesis concert across the street. The entire scene in South Philly that night was amazing.)

Absolutely the greatest baseball series ever played. Game 5 was the greatest deciding game ever played.

Non-Eagles:
1) Utleys fakeout in the World Series

3) Halladays playoff no-hitter

Default OK, one from 1960

If you’re old enough or know your Iggles history.

The last time we won the WORLDS FUCKING CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE NFL...........

Final play of the game. Jim Taylor alone in the middle of the field. Concrete Charlie left to beat. Charlie makes the tackle and refuses to let Taylor, who’s flipping around like a grounded flounder, get back to his feet.

Time expires with Charlie still on top. Iggles win!

Default Speaking Flyers.......

Prior to game 6, the lights go down and out waddles Kate Smith to sing God Bless America in all her glory.

Bobby Orr skates over when she’s finished and hands her a bouquet of red roses, but it’s too late. The damage had been done and the Broons didn’t have a chance! What an electric moment!

Greg Gross used to be my neighbor. One of the best pinch hitters in mlb.

Some of my top moments aside from the obvious from this year would be

1. 4th & 26 - Fredex always delivers.

2. I do not remember the year but the Farve lead packers were playing in Philly. I was at the game with my dad. Farve was trying to pull his gun slinger routine and went to throw a deep bomb, to this day I do not know who his target was as the only person in the general area was B-Dawk. As soon as the ball left his hands the entire stadium lept to their feet as you could see it going to Dawkins for the pic.

3. I am thinking it was the 08 playoff run where the Eagles played a 4: o'clock game and the cowboys were a 1 o'clock. We needed either the cowboys to lose or the Eagles to win to get into the playoffs. as 4 rolled in we found out the cowboys lost and the stadium became a party. I never heard the Linc that loud. I believe we won the game with our backups but I could be wrong.

And I think it took too long to get to 4th and 26.

Well ... Halladay's no-hitter does not qualify under the rules set by IE.

And this is kind of off the track but I think the knee ball that caromed to Torrey Smith, which should have been a pick (maybe a pick six) may have saved last season ... considering how that game was going at the time and how it ended up (it still took a slip by Julio Jones not to lose it)

is going to be one of those moments that isn't all that cool to watch, but I think we all recognize the importance of that play in retrospect. I tend to agree with you.

Fine. The great play Chooch made on the last out of the no-hitter.
