Understandable. The new coach in town, in a strategic PR move, endears himself to the blue collar/lunch pail crowd, at an ever where they flip their blue collars and wave their lunch pails hardest. This year, however, one of the special guests at Wing Bowl is an old friend.

Matt "The Ass Hammer" Stairs will be in attendance, and if there is a more appropriate Philadelphia legend for a meat-devouring contest, then I am not able to come up with their name in this moment.
