AFTER days of moping around after the Eagles Super Bowl loss, I realized how proud I am to be living in Philadelphia, and be an Eagles fan. So what did I do? I put on my NFC Championship shirt ($19.99), pulled over my warm Green Eagles hoodie ($39.99), walked out the door to my car and noticed the dry, crusty salt on my mirrored Eagles license plate ($29.99). I wiped it off to a shine with my sleeve, stood up, stuck out my chest, got in my car and went to work in the City of the Philadelphia Eagles.

With his heart in Atlanta and his body in a red Falcons hoodie in Collegeville, P.J. Yaskowski is no feathered friend to Eagles fans, who squawk at his allegiance. "I went to the pet store the other night, and this lady was standing there with a little kitten in her arms," said Yaskowski. "She looks at me and goes, 'Falcons fan. Get out of here.' " Lucky for him, the woman wasn't carrying a pit bull. As the two teams prepare to battle Sunday for a spot in the Super Bowl, it may be a bird-brained idea to wear Falcons colors in Eagles country, Yaskowski and fellow Atlanta fans have found out this week.
