Angry Birds and Philadelphia Eagles Unite!

In a marriage made in sports aviary heaven, the Philadelphia Eagles today announced a marketing partnership with Rovio Entertainment, creators of the world's most popular casual video game "Angry Birds."

Here's the video of a cartoony Andy Reid, announcing the signing of five squawking free agents - four of whom look just like  feathery feuders  from the game. The fifth - named the "Mighty Philadelphia Eagle" - oddly couldn't make this morning's virtual press event, but will be on hand for the start of the 2012 season - and maybe a customized/purchasable  Eagles version of the game app?  

We were hoping for announcement of an Angry Birds Fan game character, too.  Maybe he'll pop up later, if the season doesn't go so well.
