What to do when your two favorite teams play each other?
Next weekend my two favorite pro football teams play each other when the Eagles visit the Saints. Guess I'll mow the lawn Sunday afternoon.

1. Being that my two teams are the Eagles and anyone playing the Cowgirls..
I don't ever come across that sort of conflict. How is it that you have two teams to root for?

4. Born in Philadelphia
grew up near Connie Mack Stadium; have lived near New Orleans for the past 17 years but have never severed my Eagles allegiance. Love to see them both win (and that's been an occasional occurrence with the Saints.) I believe the Eagles will prevail but the Saints are getting better every week as the offense continues to gel. It will be a great game; and the french quarter is just a nice stroll away afterwards.

5. I see.
Well just go and cheer for everything that happens, you can't be disappointed. I've been waiting for this game for 3 years now so I could come down to New Orleans and my buddy goes and schedules his wedding for this saturday which ruins everything. I'll have to wait for the cycle to go around again and hope we play down there next time.

2. I usually only have one favorite team.
That's just how I am.

3. I only have one team . . .
Pro Football wise.. but considering how the season's gone so far. . I'm willing to be adopted by the fans of another team :).

6. I feel you...
This past week the Rams played the Packers, my two favorite teams. I like the Rams a little more, and luckily they have a better team than the Pack, so it was an easy choice.

7. As Al Michaels said during the 1987 World Series (A's vs. Giants)
"This is not a rivalry; this is a love fest."

I could never understand why nobody in Chicago can pull for both the Cubs and White Sox. What is that about?

When your two favorite teams are playing each other, as happened in this neck of the woods in the 1987 World Series, you sit back and enjoy it, knowing you can't lose.

Why, even the California earth herself was so happy that it jumped for joy just prior to the third game.
