What is the worst incident you have witnessed against an opposing fan or yourself at the ballpark?
  • "Worst? There's always something being thrown at the opposing team's fans. And we like it like that!"
  • "We are in the front row of the upper bowl. While cheering a touchdown one time, a guy's hat fell off his head and into another guy's basket of fries with ketchup on the top. Well, some ketchup got onto the hat and before you know it, the guy with the wet hat just started wailing on the poor unfortunate guy who put his fries down in front of him in order to cheer. To this day, I am convinced the guy was trying to push the other over the railing. And these were two Eagles fans."
  • "One Cowboys fan had beer poured on his head, then he was punched in face and thrown down six rows of chairs in the stands. The best part was that the victim was the one who was kicked out."
  • "I saw a little girl, about 10, get put in a trash can because she was wearing a Giant's jersey."
  • "Fans threw snowballs at Santa Claus."
What is your favorite memory from a game at the stadium?
  • "The NFC playoff game against Green Bay where the famous 4th-and-26 completion from Donovan McNabb to Freddie Mitchell allowed our playoff run to continue."
  • "Lito Sheppard returning an interception for a score against Dallas in 2006 during T.O.'s homecoming game."
  • "After attending three-straight losses in the NFC Championship, beating Atlanta to go to the Super Bowl in 2004 was just an amazing feeling. When Chad Lewis caught the final touchdown to put the Eagles over the top, there was a 5,000-pound monkey lifted off all the fans' backs, and we jumped and screamed and cheered like little girls."
