Monday's Unverified Fact About Philadelphia

The 'Boys host la fee verte on Sunday afternoon. A "fact" about the team from "foul, fetid, fuming, foggy, filthy Philadelphia":

During road trips, the Eagles play Scrapple--a game where they identify bits of snout, intestine, ear, trotter and tail in their breakfast dish. The first to find something from the nose, middle and tail of a pig wins.*

*Source: The Milton Hasbro game company, who add that before joining ESPN, former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski pitched this as a family board game. Note: the "foul, fetid" line is from the serious, scholarly musical documentary 1776.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
