The 'Boys host la fee verte on Sunday afternoon. A "fact" about the team from "foul, fetid, fuming, foggy, filthy Philadelphia":

During road trips, the Eagles play Scrapple--a game where they identify bits of snout, intestine, ear, trotter and tail in their breakfast dish. The first to find something from the nose, middle and tail of a pig wins.*


*Source: The Milton Hasbro game company, who add that before joining ESPN, former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski pitched this as a family board game. Note: the "foul, fetid" line is from the serious, scholarly musical documentary 1776.
