  • Why do some East coast teams( Eagles) spell out their team names?

    Ok, I was roommates with a bunch of Eagles fan last semester and they yell out loud and Spell E-A-G-L-E-S.They even did it in that Invincible movie. I saw the Jets do it on TV today too. I've never witnessed any other team outside that region do it. Why do they do it? Are they trying to reassure everyone they are able to spell? It's sure annoying, I want to punch them in the face everytime I hear it.

    What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
    they get smoked.

    Hint:Not the Bears.

        Well for the Eagles it's part of their team song/chant. So if your roommates didn't sing the song they are NOT true Eagles fans. ;)

                  "Fire Millen" is pretty much the only chant we know...

                    no one else has a short name and other team would sound weird if you spelled it out.

                      "Here we go Pittsburgh" is the chant for all 3 teams.

                          They showed someone with a sign that read "The J-E-T-S can S-P-E-L-L"
