Go Iggles, IS Philly blessed this year? HAve we atoned for our sins of Abscam/ and Nicky Scarfo?.

I am elated and , feel that, once the stars are aligned as they have been thus far.
CAN THE IGGLES MAKE IT ON THEIR MODERATE TALENT POOL?

WILL ANDY REID BLOW UP FROM AN OVERDOSE OF SCRAPPLE AND EGGS?

I haven't a clue what you're talking about here, farmer. I'm guessing football. (No, absolutely no need to explain!)
But how can I help supporting a team named (nicknamed?) the Iggles? With a moderate talent pool .... & atoning for past sins, even?
This sounds like my sort of team!
GO Iggles! Very Happy

@msolga,
Philadelphia has always been accused of being a large city with no professional sports franchises. This year, however, The tables have turned and our fates have been steered by something that we, as fans, are totally unequipped to handle, WINNING!. Its a scary feeling.
Our baseball team won the wordl series
and our football team , through means not related to good playing and coaching, has been thrust into the playoffs and they are three games in and yet 2 away from winning a SUPER BOWL

Your time has come, farmer!

Go Iggles!!!!

Just one question & then I'll butt out & let people who know what you're talking about get on with discussing the topic properly ..:

Why "Iggles"? I can't quite get "iggles" from Philadelphia.

I was of course joking. Any team that can get this far in the playoffs is a winner to me. (Damned Texans)

Miss Olga, FM is referring to an American style football team called the Philadelphia Eagles, who were last seen standing on a street corner in South Philly, laughing and dropping things.

@msolga,
Sorry, I keep forgetting that little colloquial terms that we use in our various countries can be viewed as some kinda shibboleths tor the rest of us..
I admit that I hadda look up the word "Chooks" in an unfamiliar context when deb first used it many years ago. Now I can use chook in polite conversation without blushing.
See, in US slang, a chook is a contraction of the words "chode" and Mook". Much study has been undertaken on the etymology of the word chode and it gets really nasty , unless you hang around SOuth Philly Italian neighborhoods .

Set has explained the word "Iggles" correctly and his lame attempt at how the Iggles are frequently intercepted or are competent fumblers did not go unnoticed and I shall remind him that in this playoff series such is not the case. The Iggles have successfully caused turnovers and have recovered fumbles on Minnesota, Dallas, and most recently , the G'INTES
