The season isn’t turning out like Doug Pederson and the Philadelphia Eagles hoped, but whatever the record, Philly fans are always ready to throw a great tailgate party — or hundreds of them.

Billy Penn joined in the fun at Eagles vs. Patriots on Nov. 17. We brought out our Gameadelphia tent, hosted with our partners at WHYY, PlanPhilly and Thirsty Dice Board Game Cafe in Fairmount.

While we playing Tumblin’ Dice and giving away hot chocolate from Saxbys, treats from Famous 4th Street Cookies and Dietz Nuts from Dietz & Watson, our videographer was zooming around the parking lot with on his OneWheel, capturing the joyfulness of the scene. It’s just a game, after all — and these bleeding green folks know it.

Watch the video below to get a feel for what it’s like pre-game outside Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia.
