We should not be surprised. They assaulted and booed Santa Claus, after all*.

Creative usage of the pound sign. Anyway, I love that this enterprising Eagles fan was so worked up about Saturday’s NFC divisional round showdown with the Giants that he took time to do this. And that he logistically can do it. The Giants’ facility is on a service road next to Route 3 and the Meadowlands parking lots. You’d probably get a ticket from a state trooper after 15 minutes.
Anyway, it should be electric at Lincoln Financial Field. Everyone will have at least 12 hours to get well-oiled before that 8:15 p.m. kickoff. Middle fingers galore. And, maybe, a good football game.
The Giants lost both regular season games to the Eagles, their NFC East rival. But they acquitted themselves well in the regular season finale. The Giants rested their starters but still managed to cover as a two-touchdown road underdog in a 22-16 loss. The Eagles had hammered them, 48-22, earlier in the year at MetLife Stadium.
This will be the fifth postseason meeting between the Eagles and Giants. The playoff series is tied at 2. The Eagles have won the last two meetings — a 2006 wild card matchup in Philadelphia and a 2008 divisional round game in the Meadowlands. The Giants won a 1981 wild card game in Philly and a 2000 divisional game at home.
