"Huge announcement" coming from Eagles, supposedly

We prefer Twitter to Facebook, for reasons that we both can and can’t articulate.  But we keep an eye on the Facebook thing from time to time, especially since every once in a while, there’s something newsworthy on there.

On the Facebook page that purports to be the official Facebook page of the Philadelphia Eagles, the team says that a “huge announcement” is coming today at 3:00 p.m. ET.

Specifically, the message is to tune in to the team’s website for a “huge announcement about the 2010 season!”

The presence of the exclamation point suggests to us that the announcement is anything but “huge,” and that it’s part of a plan to get people to buy something they aren’t currently inclined to buy.

Either way, we’ll let you know what the announcement is, but only if it’s truly not part of a plan to get people to buy something they aren’t currently inclined to buy.

Meanwhile, may we interest you in the PFT Season Preview magazine?

  1. They’ve been calling like crazy lately trying to sell high priced single game packages.

  2. No, you may not interest us in PFTspMag IF Florio picked The Skins to win The Super Bowl again.

  3. The Eagles home page refers to an event occurring at 3 PM, not a special announcement,

  4. its going to be nothing about the actual team, if so it would have been leaked already.

  5. They are announcing their 1st game will be “Corn on the Kolb” Day. Everyone gets a FREE ear of corn!

  6. It was already posted on Philly.com that they’re going to feature 10 season ticket holders on the game tickets.

    Andy Reid ate Mike Vick ?
    ______________________________
    Vick entered Reid in a walrus fighting ring?

  8. Improper use of exclamation points and Florio couldn’t reference Seinfeld??? The old man is getting soft on us.

  9. Florio must get paid by the word.
    ” part of a plan to get people to buy something they aren’t currently inclined to buy.
    … part of a plan to get people to buy something they aren’t currently inclined to buy.”
    My kid writes better than that.

  10. Please let it be T.O. coming back so he can finish destroying this team!!!!!

  11. its going to be a concert, celebrity appearance, something really retarded that people in Philly would not appreciate anyway…

  12. They haven’t mailed the game tickets yet? I already got my Pats season tickets the other day.

  13. Maybe something as big as a ticket manager for the Jaguars getting arrested for public intoxication. I doubt it is that huge.

  14. Fine, I bought the magazine after endless pimping. I’m glad I finally did. You are a dreams come true inspiration.
    If only I could figure out what I’m dreaming for, that I have a say in (which counts out an Eagles Super Bowl win).

    Nice work.

  16. A “huge announcement” would be that both Graham and Allen have signed their rookie contracts.

  17. The Eagles are trading Donovan McNabb to the rival Redskins………..wait, that could never happen.

    I agree best post of all time!

  20. Shouldn’t you ask of us to buy your magazine have an exclamation point behind it since “The presence of the exclamation point suggests to us that the announcement is anything but “huge,” and that it’s part of a plan to get people to buy something they aren’t currently inclined to buy.”?

  21. They’re going to put BO’s visage at the 50 yard line so players who score can dance or expectorate on it and Florio can bow down and worship.

  22. They are going to announce that 10 fans are going to be the images on their season tickets this year… the announcement will name the 10 fans. Guaranteed.

  23. Andy Reid and Rex Ryan have signed a contract to have a hamburger eating contest….the winner gets a year’s free hamburgers from Wendys.

  24. team announces “it was a mistake to trade mcnabb” guy has carried them to what 5 nfccg ?
    he reminds me of elway in the early years where he plays his ass off and never had the surrounding talent to get over the hump…..until he did.
    now the ironic thing is it will probably be shanahan who helps mcnabb get his rings as well !!!!

  25. They’ve been named sleaziest sports franchise in North America for the second straight year.

  26. They are hiring more women to help Lurie’s wife make football related decisions. EOE and all that you know.

  27. @michbengal — this was intentionally repeated as an attempt at humor. you’re clearly an idiot.

  28. The front office will proclaim that the Phillies are no longer the better franchise, since they are enduring a terrible slump.

  29. Why wouldn’t ESPN jump all over this and make a prime time special out it? I mean we could all analyze for hours what it will be and then sit through two hours of “The Announcement” special just to find out what would take them 30 seconds to tell us. I personally think this is the way to go for any announcement. What do you think Cleveland?

    Really? Thats the best post of all time? Yikes. Your a good kid, but your sense of humor is horrible.

  31. > They found a fan with some class?
    Yes. Monocle, British accent and pinky extended whilst fingering yo mamma.

  32. The Eagles have added a maximum security prison into Lincoln Financial Field to house the trash that fills in there on Sundays

    I am envious of that brilliant post. I have tried for years to post something half as funny.

  35. The Eagles are going to make Mike Vick the starting QB and the owners wifes driver.

  36. Andy Reid will challenge Joey Chestnut in the hot dog eating contest next year?????

  37. From Philly.com:
    Photos of 10 die-hard season-ticketholders are featured on home tickets, part of the new fan-oriented marketing pitch. A news conference is set for today at 3 p.m. at the NovaCare Complex.

  38. They’re going to put BO’s visage at the 50 yard line so players who score can dance or expectorate on it and Florio can bow down and worship.

  39. Let’s see, knowing this Team the way I do. I will say it’s something that has NOTHING to do with improving the team. It will be a marketing or way for them to make more money, or for them to save money, or for them get more of your money. maybe they added a new way overpriced concession or way overpriced uniform addition.
    Man I hate this organization, what a waste of my time they are…

  40. The Eagles have released Michael Vick and have signed Doug Pederson to be the backup to Kevin Kolb.

  41. @burgundy and gold,
    You’re team has sucked for about 19 years straight now….worry about the trash that has paid to go see that.
    Oh that’s right. There is no trash in DC! LMAO !!!!!!!!

  42. “We are the youngest team in the league and still expected to compete.”
    Expected by who – the guy who runs the hot dog concession? Certainly not anyone outside of that cesspool of a city.

  43. There is a new scumbag free zone where normal people can hide from the typical Eagle fanbase.

  44. the BIG Eagles news is:
    they are printing pics of fans on tickets instead of players.

    Hilarious!!!

  46. The Washington Redskins, unable to agree on a contract extension with Donovan McNabb, have traded him back to the Eagles for DeSean Jackson, Stewart Bradley, Brent Celek and two first round draft choices (2011 & 2012).

  47. “Either way, we’ll let you know what the announcement is, but only if it’s truly not part of a plan to get people to buy something they aren’t currently inclined to buy.”
    So either way your going to let us know unless its a plan to get people to buy something? Sounds to me like you will only let us know if its not a plan to get people to buy something..

  48. You guys r all wrong.
    Marty Morningwood has invented a new offense called the run-n-poop.

  49. The hatred Spewed by some of the “CLASSY”
    fans of other franchises on this post is Amusing ! Especially that they’re calling Eagles fans classless

  50. Dallas Cowgirl fans can stop hating on Philly fans already!
    You’re just a bunch of frontrunners who would change allegiances in a heartbeat!
    Eagles fans are real and that is why you phony p*ricks hate us so much!
    PS: this supposedly “huge” announcement if it really is just putting pics of fans on tickets, really pisses me off! Way to get our hopes up for nothing, Eagles!

  51. WHAT A HUGE WASTE OF TIME. THEY ANNOUNCED 14 FANS WILL BE ON SEASON TICKETS.
    WHO THE F CARES?

  52. The “big announcement” is that they are going to put pictures of fans on the tickets instead of pictures off players and coaches… Big F-ing deal! This gets a BIG WOMP WOMP!!!

    Why are the other knuckle draggers on the thread saying this is the funniest thing they have seen on this site? Apparently they aren’t on this website too often b/c us Eagles fans are reminded about this fact EVERY TIME THERE IS A BLURB ABOUT ANYTHING EAGLES-RELATED!!!
    Oh, please do not forget about the three NFL Championships we do possess. Thank you and piss off.

  54. another late afternoon announcement: They looked up Andy Reid’s son’s ass in search of those missing superbowl trophys….no luck just lots of Heroin.

  55. @burgundy and gold,
    You’re team has sucked for about 19 years straight now….worry about the trash that has paid to go see that.
    Oh that’s right. There is no trash in DC! LMAO !!!!!!!!

  56. The “Huge announcement” was just the unveiling of the new season tickets…..they now have fans on them with quotes from the individual fan. L A M E !

  57. “PS: this supposedly “huge” announcement if it really is just putting pics of fans on tickets, really pisses me off! Way to get our hopes up for nothing, Eagles!”
