On a typical Sunday, football fans in the City of Brotherly Love support two different teams: the Philadelphia Eagles and the one against the Dallas Cowboys.
But what happens when the team playing “America’s Team” is, in fact, the Eagles, and the game is scheduled for the brightest national lights in Monday Night Football?
Well, I guess you could always watch the other professional Keystone State football team … unless you live in the central part of the state, where play is suspended due to the rules of weird league lineup.
So what does that leave a Philly football fan to do? Watching the unnamed Washington football team take on the Buffalo Bills? Or how about the Baltimore Ravens playing Detroit in a game that maybe not ultimately Lamar Jackson. Turn your 1 p.m. football brunch into a 4 p.m. early bird special when the ex-Eagle DeSean Jackson and the top Los Angeles Rams take on Tom Brady and the âTompa Bayâ Buccaneers? Or wait until it’s dark to see Kerryon Johnson potentially making his debut for the 49ers at home against the Green Bay Packers (more details here).
* sigh * this will turn into a catastrophic scroll day “Ben Simmons Swaps RumorsOn Twitter, right?
Fear not, because there is a lot to do on a Sunday without Philadelphia Eagles football, some of which could give you even more energy for Monday night.
An incomplete list of things to do without Sunday Philadelphia Eagles football.
Do you live between Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and Cherry Hill, New Jersey? If so, you can stop by the Philadelphia Eagles Pro Shop and stock up on game loot. Between you and me the store sells non-current jerseys at great prices so you might be able to go ahead and buy a number 2 Jalen hurts low-cost swimsuit that could serve as a fun talking point a few years down the road.
Or maybe you’re not the jersey type. That’s great. Perhaps you are rather greedy. If so, can I suggest this recipe for Full Bo SsÃ¤m by the famous chef David Chang from the Momofuku food empire? Of course, you can buy a Full Bo SsÃ¤m straight from the source through Goldbelly for $ 269, but you can also do it yourself for a fraction of the price over a six hour cooking window, and trust me, it’s pretty darn good.
Do you like food in general and David Chang in particular, but don’t want to go to the butcher shop, buy something called âBoston Pork Buttâ and cook all afternoon? Well, you can always watch one of Chang’s shows on Netflix instead, The spirit of a chef, Ugly Delicious, or his last broadcast, Breakfast, lunch and dinner.
â¦ What is that? Are you more of the narrative-fiction genre? Well a short jump into the same general palette is the movie Chief. It’s written, done and stars Jon favreau between his stint in the MCU and the creation of the new Lion King and it’s a delicious frolic about, well, about a chef. There’s also, funny enough, a cooking show called The chefs show on Netflix which features David Chang in the episode “David Chang”.
See, look at it; things have come full circle.
Listen, these are just suggestions. You can just choose to watch other football games, cook other food, or maybe even shoot scenes for your own movie on this rare Philadelphia Eagles football-free Sunday. You can kick back, exercise, kick back, paint a deck, really, whatever you want; all that matters is that you log on Monday night and root really hard for the Birds to beat Dallas on the national stage. And hey, if you happen to attend the game in person, try one of David Chang’s âFukuâ Chicken Sandwiches, which were at least sold to the Linc by Section 114 from the August 2018. Arrow, full circle x2; I have arrived.
