I was born an Eagles fan from small town, Ohio. My dad fell in love with the Birds in the 1970s and passed that love of the team on to me. I will never forget the 2nd grade (1997), when asked to write a letter to my hero, I chose to write a letter to Bobby Hoying (boy, did that turn out well). The early to mid 2000s were also a special time for me as a young Eagles fan, enamored by the great defenses of the Jim Johnson era and wondering if Donovan would ever secure a true #1 WR, followed by the pure heartbreak of Superbowl XXXIX. These days, I have my own young son to pass my love for this team onto and I couldn't be more excited about that.
