TJ and ET Roam the Hills and Pagoda of Reading, PA

Perched atop Mount Penn in Reading, Pennsylvania, resides a bell cast in 1739 Japan.  There, TJ and the Eagles Troll reflected on the Eagles prospects for 2014.  Will our secondary clamp down on offenses?  Can Foles and Shady come close to their performances from last year?  Will our boys do us proud?  The answer, they inevitably discovered, was a question unto itself: Does the sun rise in the east?  Fly, Eagles, Fly.

iambrownAMA and the Eagles Troll Go Bollywood in Bangalore, India

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!

Jay and ET Take in the Final Regular Season Game Together in Maryland

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.

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.

Santa
On to India!

D Rob and the Eagles Troll Reconnoiter in the Meadowlands

He did enjoy his stay in Jersey.  Met Life was set up for the Jets when he visted and Rex Ryan did offer to have the Troll be the starting QB next week [sadly the Jets were too late in taking ET up on this].  He also really enjoyed his glamour shots on my car…  ;)

He did make a trip over to the Giants training facility.  Not sure if you can tell in the one picture, but the Troll is giving the Sad Manning Face

Eagles Troll Finds Canadian Riddlesinthedark Raising His Kids the Philadelphia Way

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”Eagles Troll SK1

“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!”

Eagles Troll SK2

“Mini sticks wasn’t enough so we headed over to my brothers place to take in the Flyers game in style!”

Eagles Troll SK3

“Jagr!! Perfect fit!”

The (Miller) High Life in Spokane, Washington

Caladanbrood23 is a lucky man to have these sorts of views in his figurative backyard.  The Pacific Northwest was a breath of fresh air.  “Here’s our pictures from my garage in Spokane, and my work trip up through Grand Coullee and Dry Falls, what used to be the worlds largest waterfall.”  Take a look at the first picture and see if you spot the pun.
