Stop us if you've heard this, but one time some Eagles fans threw snowballs at Santa Claus. For the last 49 years we haven't been able to live that moment down, so with the Eagles playing tonight, we asked ESPN if they plan to bring it up. Obviously they said yes. Check out what Monday Night Football producer Jay Rothman had to say, plus the over/under on how many Santa hats they'll show during the game.
The holidays are great for nostalgia. Whether you're cuddling up with loved ones right now, ripping into presents or snoozing the day away, first take a peek at these photos from Christmases past in Philly. Our favorite is the 1949 photo of the holiday shopping crowds at 11th and Market.
Are you eating goose and pound cake for Christmas dinner? According to our research from holidays past, the Philly region is more likely to have goose on the table than anything else. Head north to find pot roast. The middle of the state is apparently just guzzling gravy. Check out these maps and tell us how closely they resemble your dinner table.
Don't forget, not only do the Eagles play tonight, but the Sixers play at noon against the Knicks. That's a lot of sports to cram into your yule log this Christmas, so we've given you 5 helpful tips for surviving Christmas with your Philly sports fan family. But beware...the Steelers also play, and we can't help you if one of their fans show up at your house today.
