"Unspeakable, even for us," they called it in the Daily News.
As Eagles fans cheered while Michael Irvin's limp body was carted off the field, they had no idea they were solidifying their role as the league's punching bag for fan villainy. It was a regrettable moment, sure, but has become one of the cliches spouted by those out of the loop each time "bad fans" are brought up, as if it's a story no one's heard for a while.
In the end, it's in the past, along with the litany of anecdotes exaggerated and hyperbolized today. At least Michael Irvin seems over it on Sunday NFL Countdown. Or maybe the Cowboys are just that bad.
Michael Irvin picked the Eagles. Be very afraid.— Jimmy Kempski (@JimmyKempski) December 29, 2013
