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.
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.
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 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.
And a couple bonus pictures in Philly
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!”
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.
