From The 700 Level:
This epic photo was taken on Sunday by reader Alex F. He writes: “At long last, Santa Claus finally gets his chance to throw snowballs back at Eagles fans. This guy was in the first row of the middle tier on Sunday, raining snowballs down on the lower level after McCoy’s TD run. The Grinches in security jackets tossed him, I believe. It’s hard to miss a guy in a Santa suit in the first row throwing snowballs.”
Of course this happened in Philly. If you’ve never seen a professional sporting event in Philly, the only thing you’re missing are the rudest, least-intelligent fans in the history of sports. Seriously. I’ve seen more guys blacked out drunk at Phillies games (not Eagles, but a fucking baseball game) than you would during Hell Week at a college frat. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this sort of thing happened at an Eagles game.
But more importantly than what would compel someone to throw snowballs (because let’s face it – kind of an awesome move), is what the hell would compel someone to dress as Santa? I’ve never understood that. I mean, who wakes up and says, “you know, today I think I’m going to dress up like Santa.” Even wearing the stupid red and white hat pisses me off. Oooooh, it’s Christmas! Look at my stupid hat, just in time for the holiday! And so long, oldies on the radio, it’s all crappy Christmas music now! That probably pisses me off most of all.
If you see someone this week in your office wearing a Santa hat, ask them why they’re wearing it. Chances are you’ll get a blank stare and a bunch of drool dripping from his or her chin. And then blast them in the face as hard as you can.
