The Philly Fan's Code on Tour!

Want to watch Eagles-Seahawks with me? Want to do it in a really big, lively bar, where it is easy to slip away if I start screaming? How about a big,lively bar incredibly close to mass transit, so you can have that extra beer before slipping home via the subway, PATCO, or Suburban Station?

I will be signing books and generally causing a disturbance Thursday night at The Field House in Center City Philadelphia. Click the link for info. They will not let me guest bartender, because I threatened to make every drink with Clamato.

If you have not bought The Philly Fan's Code yet, this is a good time to pick it up. It makes a perfect stocking stuffer for the frustrated Eagles fan in your life.

Can I make a suggestion? The 700 Level is doing a viewing party at Misconduct Tavern that night; join forces with them.

I wish. I like Misconduct a lot, and those guys were swell when I met them a few years ago. We need to get all the publicists and stuff to sit down at some point and create something that is fun for readers and useful for all of us who need to self promote.

What happens if we start screaming first?

I'm waiting for the European Tour.

Is there any other way to describe an Eagles fan at this point? Sure, you can go with "disgusted," "incredulous" and/or "angry enough to throw a baby into the sun" but "frustrated" really cuts to the heart of the matter.

That's be an interesting science fair project. Calculate the necessary force to throw a baby into the sun, calculated for each of the inner planets, compared to whatever core may exist under those clouds of Jupiter.

Bonus points if you can determine which planets' atmospheres would burn the baby to a crisp before he/she reached open space.

Super bonus points if you can figure out which alloys you'd have to replace the baby's bones with to withstand the pressure at Jupiter's core to begin with.

Eagles fans may find this exercise to be a calming substitute for actually watching Eagles games.

You'd have to use some sort of rocket, though. Babies don't have the internal stiffness required to tolerate the accelerations required to reach terminal velocity on a sunward trajectory.

What time are you getting there?

I'd still rather watch this team than any of the Marion Campbell, and most of the Ray Rhodes' teams.

Things are getting crazy. Today at work I happened to come across a spreadsheet with some random small business name that happened to have Reid in it (Reid's Pet Grooming or whatever) and I had to take a 5 minute mental vacation to let the anger out.

This is not healthy.
