A great day to be an Eagles fan

First, we were treated with the news that Michael Strahan has decided to retire.  Good riddance.  If I had to ensure one more season of the “Jon Runyan – Michael Strahan” running feud nonsense, I was probably going to have to climb to the top of a tower with a high-powered rifle and…..wait, where was […]
