I'm probably not doing myself any favors by admitting I grew up watching NFL games in the most hostile subdivision of the least attractive venue in North American sports history: the 700 level of the old Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia. There, in the uppermost section of that damp, beer-smelling donut of concrete and steel at the terminus of the Broad Street subway line, I went to my first Eagles game when I was eight, during Randall Cunningham's MVP season. I was there for the highest scoring playoff game in NFL history -- Eagles 58, Lions 37 -- and two or three games a year through high school. In college, I learned to call Ticketmaster Wyoming to avoid the jammed phone lines when Eagles tickets went on sale and waited in line overnight for obstructed-view 100-level tickets to postseason games. Since moving to New York after graduating college, I still make it back for a few home games a season.
