Picture White Vick, Black Brady
That Michael Vick sure is scrappy!
"I was really excited to see him out here. He looks like he's in great shape and ready to go," said Eagles head coach Andy Reid. "I was also surprised to see him, because I think he's still on the Titans, right? Did he just drive up here last night?"
While Johnson says he still wants a new contract, he is itching to play and has been following all of the Eagles' preseason hype.
"Let's say the Titans even give me a new contract," said Johnson. "What does that accomplish? I'm still playing for a shitty team. Nah, I'm an Eagle now."
NFL rules prohibit a player from suiting up for a team he is not under contract with, but Johnson says he has a way around that.
"I haven't run this by my agent yet, but I don't see why it wouldn't work I'll just change my name to Cris Johnson with no 'h' in 'Chris' and then I'll be a different name than what's on the Titans contract," said Johnson. "I'll be free to sign with the Eagles then, right? Well, it makes sense to me."
Picture Favre + Eagles = Pure NFL Evil
Eagles fans would give Brett Favre the booing he's always deserved.
"I think we all know how Philadelphia fans are, with the booing Santa Claus and what not," said Vancouver mayor Gregor Robertson. "Whereas we Canadians have a reputation for being very laid back and peaceful. So, obviously, the evidence could not be more clear: Philadelphia fans came to our fair city and tore it apart."
While almost every image and video of the riot shows people in Vancouver Canucks jerseys, t-shirt and hats and no one sporting Flyers apparel or that of any other Philadelphia team Mayor Robertson said there is a very simple explanation for that.
"At the Vancouver airport there are many shops that sell Canucks stuff," he said. "So it's clear that they flew in from Philadelphia there is a direct flight to Vancouver from there, I checked walked through the airport, purchased Canucks gear and then proceeded to the downtown to riot."
With the case "now solved," according to Robertson, the mayor has requested that people again associate his city with being peaceful and picturesque.
"Basically, think of it as the complete opposite of that hell hole of Philadelphia," he said.
