Trump will cancel the visit.

scottydoesntknow: Trump will cancel the visit.


He thinks the Pat's won the Electoral College Bowl

Plenty of Eagles is the name of my Gwar cover band.
 
2018-02-08 01:39:22 PM  
Why bother visiting, when Trump will turn it into something focusing on himself anyways?
 
2018-02-08 01:41:57 PM  
That would be like, um, treason right?
 
2018-02-08 01:42:47 PM  
Classic rock meets 80s synthpop/new wave?  Would be an interesting cover band

Trump lies about his birdies. Now Eagles?
 
2018-02-08 01:48:48 PM  
I don't know why you would go. Trump has done nothing but bash the NFL for the last year. Now he wants you to show up for a photo op and give him a jersey? Fark him.

Send the Russian football league champs, at least he would respect them

I would consider going just so I could refuse to shake his hand. Or turn my back.

i agree with not going but don't agree with this course of action. IMHO not respecting the man and disrespecting the office are two different things and you risk putting yourself at his level.

that said..

I also worked one of the last Eagles gigs before Henley died. I had a stage move where I had to run across below the upstage edge of the stage ( arena show, so the stage was six feet high) and I nearly knocked Joe Walsh on his ass ( he's maybe five foot six, tops)
 Dave, the singer from Eagles of Death Metal,is an old friend and he is still pretty shook up from the bacalan attack, as is a lot of their crew. Their merch guy got killed, and they barely got away themselves.

Don Henley is considering suing subby.

It's interesting how often I see the mistake made that it's Henley and not Frey that died.  I am inclined to blame Mojo Nixon.  Or maybe it's just some collective subconscious feeling that death took the wrong Eagle.

But it's exciting. Just look at the pure joy on the players faces.

That is the look of a man who insisted on standing as far away as possible from Trump. That is the same expression I would wear if forced to be in a picture with him as well.

Subby, would you say a plethora of Eagles won't be attending the White House?

Yeah my bad
I get them mixed up. I was never into them, and I do remember that mojo Nixon song

I hope Jason Kelce takes control of the microphone at the White House and goes on a rant. His speech today was epic.

Didn't I read today that the eagles had already decided to turn down the visit if they won the game?  No?

As an Eagles fan, I hope that Chris Long and Legarrette Blount were run out of town because they refused to meet with Trump.

The whole white house visit thing just needs to die, i'd rather see teams go do a USO tour thing or visit a hospital or build a home than just some glorified PR stunt.

Oh man, what an awesome idea! Actually support the troops and be patriotic while sticking it to Trump.
Glorious.
