Some say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. There’s no better way to show respect for Philadelphia Eagles fans than booing Santa, pelting opposing players and fans with snowballs and cheering career/life-threatening injuries.
A Jupiler League game in Belgium turned into a tribute to Eagles fans when the teams were forced to retreat to their locker rooms after the visiting side was pelted with snowballs. Anderlecht was playing away at Club Brugge when two players were bombarded by snowballs every time they tried to take a corner.
The game resumed and ended with Anderlecht winning 2-0. However the fun didn’t stop there. Jonathan Legear, one of the players pelted earlier, celebrated by throwing snowballs at the away section. Here’s what happened next.
Apparently the steward is a Club Brugge fan.
If the Belgians want to see how it’s done, they should take a trip to 2009 on YouTube and learn from the masters.
Stay classy, Philly.
Note: Speaking of the Eagles, let’s all laugh at the Giants again.
