The Phillies are in the midst of a killer playoff run (albeit with a bummer of a loss in Game 3 of the NLCS last night) while the Eagles have raced out to a 5-1 record (albeit it with a bummer of a lost to the Aaron Rodgers-les Jets last week), but those two hiccups in the road have done nothing to dampen the spirit in the City of Brotherly Love.
This is nothing new either, as last year both the Eagles and the Phillies made it to the championship game (sadly losing both) but have kept the core of their teams and again are looking to make it a magical year in Pennsylvania.
It’s pretty much impossible to go anywhere even close to Philly right now and not hear “Dicked Down In Dallas,” or “Dancing On My Own,” or the classic “E-A-G-L-E-S” chant while fans are constantly decked out in green or red.
But as may be expected, hearing the same chants screamed over and over again by obnoxiously loud fans will have quite the effect on children growing up in that environment, which we got to see last year during the Eagles playoff run, curtesy of a baby monitor in fan favorite Jason Kelce’s daughter’s room.
Kelce shared a video of his daughter waking up in the morning and bursting into a chant to start her day, something I think at least 100,000 Philadelphians do on the daily.
It’s honestly one of the cutest things ever, even if you’re not a Birds fan.
