Being the open-minded troll that he is, ET took up iambrownAMA’s offer to join the Mile-High club through this Eagles fan’s jetsetting travels.
While in India, the normally very carnivorous Eagles Troll respected the local religious customs and dipped his toes in the proverbial curry water.
The friendship only blossomed with the introduction of local liquid refreshments.
His time with iambrownAMA was a lot of fun and extremely memorable. Who knew that even South Asia bleeds green?? On to France!
The Eagles Troll (ET)a pparently didn’t like being equidistant from FedEx Field and M&T Bank Stadium while visiting us in Edgewater, Maryland. ET brought bad luck as he joined Eagles Charlie Brown and Eagles Snoopy in watching the final regular season game against the Cowboys. I had to remove him from the room after the first half. He didn’t watch the playoff game against New Orleans since I was in Philly that weekend.

Eagles Troll sits on the ledge of the former Interior Department Building, mere feet from the site of the Teapot Dome scandal in the early 1920s. The Washington Monument is in the background with part of the scaffolding still attached.

Eagles Troll sits outside FedEx Field, home of the Washington Redskins, smirking at the culturally insensitive and chronically inept team’s abode.

Eagles Troll joins his friends Eagles Charlie Brown and Eagles Snoopy overlooking the South River and Chesapeake Bay just south of Annapolis, Maryland (the state capital of Maryland).
Troll was treated to an away day to watch Oldham Athletic play Liverpool FC at Anfield in the FA Cup Third Round. Photo taken outside the world famous Bill Shankly Memorial Gates

World famous Gretna Green which is famous for runaway weddings. Gretna Green is one of the world’s most popular wedding destinations.

Troll treated to a visit to a football (soccer) match to watch Oldham Athletic. Boundary Park is possibly the coldest football ground in England….being from Philadelphia, the Troll considered it tropical.
Just enough time for Troll and my son Archie to visit Santa in the town we live, Glossop.
On to India!
Doing us proud in Saskatoon, Canada.
“Mr. Troll arrived just in time for Dallas week but was content to hang out in the case with the rest of his toy brethren”
“You can’t come to Canada and not expect some exposure to hockey. Considering it’s not cold enough yet for outdoor ice he will have to settle for a game of mini sticks in my basement with my kids. He got a great view!”
“Mini sticks wasn’t enough so we headed over to my brothers place to take in the Flyers game in style!”
“Jagr!! Perfect fit!”
First, Ocmurer and the Eagles Troll rolled up to sunny and beautiful Lake Tahoe on the California side, setting out from Tahoe City. It’s the largest alpine lake in North America and the 2nd deepest in the United States, straddling both California and Nevada. You can’t get these sorts of vistas in south Philadelphia, that’s for sure.
You might recognize an icon or two in the next photo, the site of the 1960 Summer Olympics. It’s at Squaw Valley Ski Resort, the largest ski resort by acreage in the USA, and second in North America (behind Whistler/Blackcomb in British Columbia, Canada).
That’s Donner Lake in the background, where the Donner party all ate each other!
On to the UK!
