It shouldn’t be this serious.
My theory is that if you are a fan and you get that upset over a game there is something else going on in your life that forces you to suppress your anger.
Since you can’t yell at your boss, your wife or more importantly yourself, you let it out in these type of stupid ways.
Craig Coenen and his father, Peter Coenen, left Lincoln Financial Field jubilant after watching their beloved Green Bay Packers defeat the Eagles in the NFC wild card playoff game.
“We were just thinking about how nice a day it was and it was a good memory,” Peter Coenen said. “Then I looked up and said, ‘Oh my God.’ “
His son’s Toyota Camry had been stomped on, kicked and beaten (kind of like the Eagles). Fans tore out the windshield wipers and motors and used them to scratch the paint, broke off the side mirrors and left footprints and dents on the hood, trunk and roof.
“It was just drunk, obnoxious Eagles fans,” Craig Coenen said Monday after getting a repair estimate of $2,163. “Philadelphia is notorious for this, but hopefully the fans who did this are the exception, not the rule.”
Philly fans say they get a bad rap, but it is hard to feel any sympathy for them when you hear stories like this. Coenen is a college professor and is doing something positive for the Philadelphia community, something in the long run that will have a bigger effect on people than a Michael Vick touchdown pass.
I don’t know why the Eagles are upset it isn’t like they have ever won a Super Bowl before.
