The Rules of Fandom as written by the Philadelphia Negro

Anyone who knows me knows my ass bleeds green. I am an Eagles fan until the day I push up daisies. My fellow blog friend The Philadelphia Negro posted the end-all, be-all dang near BIBILICAL Rules of Sports Fandom

Learn them. Know them. Follow them. And ye shall be rewarded with a championship.... (hey, it worked for the Phillies, didn't it?)

So shall it be written, so shall it be done.

E-A-G-L-E-S, EAGLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. I am truly enamored by this post because I have friends that VIOLATE these RULES CONSTANTLY. One of them happens to be my best friend. Self-proclaimed Philly girl who loves the Midgets and the Cowgirls and hates the Eagles. Don't worry, she has many other redeeming qualities... but on Sundays we don't like each other much. Especially if its a divison game.
