It’s hard to believe that Summer is nearly halfway over. It’s even harder to believe how free and easy life has felt on these city streets with just about zero talk of the Philadelphia Eagles in the air. Cab drivers are nicer; the obese, middle-aged and white, less agitated. Oh, but nothing beautiful lasts; so let us just take a moment to remind ourselves of this site’s position on the Eagles: Put simply, we don’t give a shit. We’d trade them for another baseball team in a heartbeat (especially this year). Other sites may be ramping up their Eagles coverage, having editorial meetings about how to “handle” the Luries’ divorce, planning Eagles blogs (oh, the humanity), but not us, nuh-uh, no way. (What are we planning instead? More shit about books! Comics! Romantic evening picnics!) We promise that your Philebrity will remain as Eagles-ignorant as it always has; this is a place of refuge for you, fellow Philadelphians Who Refuse. Remember: Civilization is what you make of it.
