  1. I traveled with the Philadelphia Eagles to every away game this past year, including one home game in Philadelphia. Here is a 60 second video from every stadium played in for the 2018 Eagles Season (5 seconds each, 10 sec for Philly) . From Tampa Bay in week 2 to New Orleans in week 19 for the NFC Divisional Playoffs. I am a documentary filmmaker, and it was my goal to capture the Philadelphia Eagles Fanbase and prove that we are the best Traveling Fanbase in all of American Sports. Go Birds!!! I plan on continuing doing the write up posts of my fan experience in each city I traveled to this past season. I did a longer stadium tour video as well which is 3 minutes (15 seconds for each stadium, 30 for Philly) 60 Second Version: Extended Version:
  2. Hello fellow Eagles fans!!! My name is D. Arthur Turner IV. I am originally from Lancaster, PA but live on the West Coast. I am also a documentary filmmaker. I traveled around with the Eagles to EVERY AWAY GAME in the 2018 season as we defended our Super Bowl 52 title. The Eagles fanbase is HANDS DOWN the best traveling fanbase in all of American Sports and I wanted to capture that passion via film for my next movie. I interviewed many fans at tailgates, getting their perspective. My ultimate goal is to submit my documentary to Sundance Film Festival in September 2019. I wanted to discuss my experience in Nashville, Tennessee for week 4 of the season. Hopefully this experience will assist you next time we play the Titans or if you're ever in the city for vacation. I have a few points I want to touch on about what to do in the city and how to handle Titans fans when it comes to Game day. 1. Broadway is where you will spend most of your time, especially for adults. When it comes to things to do in Nashville, Broadway will most likely be the main focus for a short stay in the city. Broadway is a long street that is filled with different country music bars to go to. Even though Bourbon Street/French Quarters is larger and on another level, Broadway would be Nashville's version of a smaller Bourbon Street. The great thing about the location of Broadway, is that Nissan Stadium (Where Titans play) is right across the Cumberland river. Which is essentially across the street walking over a bridge. Broadway is a very fun place to listen to music, drink and have a good time. When the Eagles were in town, Eagles fans took over this area the whole weekend. 2. The city's tourist attractions are either close together or spaced far apart. Some things are within walking distance, while some things are not. Thankfully their public transportation system is very good. Many bus routes to get you to and from your different destinations. 3. HOT CHICKEN IS A MUST. When you are in Nashville, you must try their famous Hot Chicken. They have many rightfully famous places to eat at for this regional delight, like Prince's, Bolton's and Hattie B's. Prince's is the original Hot Chicken Restaurant, but Hattie B's is probably more famous! All great places to eat for some of the best fried chicken in the world. I am not joking when I say the chicken is Slap Yo Mama Good. (The hot chicken comes in different levels of hot, so do not worry) 4. Nashville BBQ is very tasty as well. They are known for their pork BBQ and vinegar based sauces. Plenty of quality places to choose from, just do a little research. 5. The Grand Ole Opry, is decently far outside of downtown Nashville, but still a bus or Uber ride away. If you are wanting to get the Country music live show experience, This is the place to go to. Many country stars have performed at the Grand Ole Opry throughout the years. It's almost like a rite of passage for country music artists to perform there. 6. The Country Music Hall of Fame is downtown, and that is a major attraction for the city. So if you want to learn more about the history of Elvis, and other country music Icons, that is the place to go. 7. Titans fans are loyal, but they are not the most passionate group of people. When the Eagles came to town, I did not see one Titans jersey in sight on Broadway or anywhere else in the city on Friday or Saturday. They do not rep their team like we do, so Nashville is another one of these places where Eagles fans can go and feel like they are in a home field situation. 8. Tailgate wise, the Titans do a good job. The Fans are pretty laid back but they love music so you will notice the parking lot is filled with different types of entertainment revolving around it. What is great about tailgating in Nashville is that you can pregame on Broadway and walk 10 min over the bridge to the stadium. So if you don't want to tailgate in the parking lot, you can do that over the bridge. Some fans even set up shop on the grassy area on the banks of the Cumberland River. 9. Nissan Stadium is a beautiful place to play. Very open, where you don't feel like you are packed together with everyone. As previously said Titans Fans don't always show their colors before game day, but when it comes to Sunday, they do a decent job filling the stadium. 10. Overall Nashville is a fun city to party and have fun in. There is a saying that Nashville is the Las Vegas of the South, while I do not agree with that statement, you can still get into lots of good trouble here. Philly Fans love coming here for games.

  3. Hello fellow Eagles fans!!! My name is D. Arthur Turner IV. I am originally from Lancaster, PA but live on the West Coast. I am also a documentary filmmaker. I traveled around with the Eagles to EVERY AWAY GAME in the 2018 season as we defended our Super Bowl 52 title. The Eagles fanbase is HANDS DOWN the best traveling fanbase in all of American Sports and I wanted to capture that passion via film for my next movie. I interviewed many fans at tailgates, getting their perspective. My ultimate goal is to submit my documentary to Sundance Film Festival in September 2019. I wanted to discuss my experience in Los Angeles for week 14 of the 2018 Eagles season. Hopefully this experience will assist you next time we play the Rams, Chargers or if you're ever in the city for vacation. I have a few points I want to touch on about what to do in the city and how to handle Rams fans when it comes to Game day. I lived in North Los Angeles for about 6 months. 1. PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IS NO GOOD. Sure, the city of LA does have a public transportation system but if you need to be anywhere fast at a certain time, do not bother using it. Los Angeles is the 2nd biggest city in America, with many different areas and neighborhoods within it but unfortunately the best way to get around is a car. Be prepared to use a rental car or stash lots of money for Uber/Lyft. Traffic will be something you'll have to deal with so plan on leaving for places 20-30 minutes earlier than normal. 2. As previously mentioned, LA is large with many different regional personalities. So my recommendation is to do research on what you personally like to do and find the right part of LA for you. The LA Coliseum is Downtown, but the touristy things in downtown are limited. The new LA Rams/Chargers stadium will be built near LAX Airport, which is in the Inglewood area, not a lot of attractions around there besides the new stadium being built. So if your only in LA for a few days but want to explore Hollywood, I would suggest staying in Hollywood. If you want to go to the beaches, I would suggest to stay in a beach town. You will have to uber or drive to the game regardless. 3. Downtown, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Chinatown, Korea Town, Malibu, Santa Monica, Long Beach, and Venice are all popular places to hangout while visiting in LA. 4. Food wise, the city is very diverse and provides lots of great options. If you want Asian cuisine, Korea Town for KBBQ or Chinatown are wonderful options. Los Angeles has pretty good Mexican food restaurants scattered throughout the city. Local burger joints are popular as well. Do a little research and you will find a restaurant that will fit your needs. I personally recommend Roscoe's Fried Chicken and Waffles if you're looking for something that is famous in LA food wise. 5. When it comes to Southern California and Pro sports teams, if you are not the LA Lakers, its hard for the residents to support other teams even if they are winning. Fair weather fans are a common thing because there is just so much to do on a sunny Sunday in Southern California. Like in the year past where the Eagles played the Chargers at Stub Hub Center, it felt as if you were back in Philadelphia for a home game. Same experience for the Rams (who were arguably the best team in the NFC this year). 6. When tailgating at the LA Coliseum, it almost mirrors the LA traffic. Everyone is close together and bumper to bumper. I would consider this a "good-form" of crowded because your tailgate spot is shoulder to shoulder with another group's tailgate. It makes for good conversation between parties. It is also fun because when the Eagles play in LA, we TAKEOVER the stadium. Fly Eagles Fly chants will ring the whole tailgate and game without any real retaliation from the Rams fans. Rams Fans are very laid back and do not show as much passion as the Eagles fans do. Be respectful, but realize that you will feel like you are in Philadelphia on the west coast. 7. When it comes to stadium experience at the LA Coliseum, I rank it very low. Besides the fact that the Eagles fans are in full force, the stadium does not provide much, outside of the game. A very old and out-dated college stadium. I am excited to experience the new stadium they are building though, that facility will be more entertainment friendly that should mirror the city's personality much more. I believe it opens in 2020. 8. Overall, Los Angeles is a great place to visit for a regular vacation or an Eagles Away(home) game. There is a lot to do for any interests you may have and it is amazing to see Eagles fans take over the city. But be prepared to spend lots of money on transportation and sit in traffic.

    EAGLES FAN EXPERIENCE IN CHICAGO

    No Problem!!! If you have any questions about the city or anything else sports fan related let me know!
  5. Hello fellow Eagles fans!!! I wanted to discuss my experience in Chicago for the NFC Wild Card Game. Hopefully this experience will assist you next time we play the Bears or if you're ever in the city for vacation. I have a few points I want to touch on about what to do in the city and how to handle Bears fans when it comes to game day. The Italian Beef Sandwich is Chicago’s equivalent to the Philly Cheesesteak. Besides the cheese, the main difference is that the Italian beef sandwich tends to naturally be a more soggy sandwich because of the beef au ju and Italian hot pepper dressing added. The #1 Classic place to go is Al’s Italian beef in Little Italy. The Chicago Style Pizza is great as well. There are various shops you can go to, but just like the Pat’s vs Geno’s debate. The debate for the Chicago style Pizza is Giordano’s vs Lou Malnati’s. I’ve only had Giordano’s, it was good but I hear Lou’s may be better (comes down to preference). You can get a classic Chicago dog at almost any native Chicago American Food establishment. But Portillo’s is a local chain that has a pretty good dog. Attractions wise, you can visit the many nature parks the city has to offer. Chicago was built with the purpose of being very nature oriented city back in the day. The most popular park is Millennial Park because of the famous Bean sculpture. The Park near the aquarium and Solider Field is beautiful as well because its close to the water. If you are more into the traditional touristy type things, go online to search for things like the Willis Tower with the Skydeck or the Pier off Lake Michigan. The University of Chicago on the South Side is a beautiful campus, but be careful at night in the South Side of Chicago. Wriglyville is a must see location if you are a baseball fan. Wrigly Field is in North Chicago in Wriglyville. The ballpark is in the middle of a residential area, which is pretty cool if you think about it. Has the feel of being a small neighborhood team. When it comes to Chicago Bears fans and their football, they are a passionate group of people. They love their sports teams. Their persona has the midwestern hospitality but that cold hearted trash talk as well. When I was tailgating for the playoff game, many Chicago fans went out of their way to talk a lot trash to me, but in a subtle sportsmanship way. If you are in Chicago in the winter time for a game, note that Solider Field right next to the water. So the icy cold winds off Lake Michigan flow over the stadium. Be prepared with layers and gloves. I was layered for the game but still was freezing by the time the 4th quarter came around. Chicago Fans can get that stadium loud when they are on defense, outside of Lincoln Financial Field and Saints' Superdome, Solider Field is one of my favorite stadiums to go to because of the loud atmosphere. After Cody Parkey "Double Doinked" the field goal for the Eagles to win. Solider Field was deathly silent. You could tell many of the fans were angry more than sad. With teams like the Bears and Eagles, the fans take losses seriously, so be respectful when leaving the stadium because there were a few brush ups I noticed between the fanbases after the game. 9. There is a lot to do in Chicago, its a big city with a reliable transportation system. Wonderful vacation place to go and explore for a few days. My name is D. Arthur Turner IV. I am originally from Lancaster, PA but now live on the West Coast. I am also a documentary filmmaker. I traveled around with the Eagles to EVERY AWAY GAME in the 2018 season as we defended our Super Bowl 52 title. The Eagles fanbase is HANDS DOWN the best traveling fanbase in all of American Sports and I wanted to capture that passion via film for my next movie.

  6. Hello Eagles fans!!! My name is D. Arthur Turner IV. I am a die-hard Philadelphia Eagles fan like everyone else here. I am originally from Lancaster, PA but live on the West Coast now. I am also a documentary filmmaker. I traveled around the country and world with the Eagles to EVERY AWAY GAME in the 2018 season as we defended our title. The Eagles fanbase is HANDS DOWN the best traveling fanbase in all of American Sports and I wanted to capture that passion via film. I interviewed many fans at tailgates, getting their perspective. My ultimate goal is to submit my documentary to Sundance Film Festival in September 2019. I wanted to discuss my experience in New Orleans the two times I visited this past season. Hopefully this experience will assist you next time we play the Saints or if you're ever in the city for vacation. I have a few points I want to go over when traveling to this enemy territory. Especially with a passionate fanbase like the Saints. 1. The food in New Orleans is amazing. Some dishes to try is the Po' Boy Sandwich, Gumbo, Seafood, Crawfish, Beignets @ Cafe Du Monde , Pho (large Vietnamese population) and soul food. 2. Alcohol is easy to come by and very cheap compared to Philadelphia. If possible, buy Alcohol off the french quarters because its marked up due to Tourism. Got to try the Hand Grenade drinks on Bourbon Street. 3. Bourbon Street is very fun but crowded most of the time during any part of the year. My suggestion is to go to Frenchman Street first, where you can get authentic music with less of a crowd. I strongly suggest Frenchman Street, if you are a person who wants the NOLA experience without the crazy large party crowd scene on Bourbon. Both areas are great tho. 4. If you are there for an early season game or in warm months, take a tour of the nearest bayous to look for alligators. In Winter months, alligators hibernate. The Bayous are beautiful where you can see lots of wildlife. 5. When it comes to game-day at the Superdome, head to Champions Square before kick off for some music, food and drinks. Its a large football party outside the stadium. (I got most of my interviews there) 6. When inside the Superdome, BE CAREFUL!!!!! New Orleans Saints fans have a sort of rough reputation as well. And they like to showcase it when the Eagles come to town because of our reputation. Both times we played there, I was threatened each time for being an eagles fan. Week 11, a Saints fan who was very drunk, was picking fights with other Eagles fans. Then wanted to fight me because I tried to tell him that you have to be careful around Eagles fans, because we are known to be on the rough side if prompted. After we lost, I was walking back to my hostel and a group of Saints fans were heckling me and egging me on to retaliate. And week 19 in the divisional round of playoffs, when we were up 14-0, I was celebrating like any other fan would (not over the top). The Saints fan seated right next to me said "by the third quarter, I will most likely ear-hole you if you keep it up". Fans from both teams near us agreed that the fan was out of line. 7. Overall, besides the NOLA Saints Fan interactions, I enjoyed my time in the city both times. If you're interested in the tailgate interviews I filmed.
