I love the Philadelphia Eagles. Some might even say I bleed green. But like everything we love in life, the Eagles have their flaws. One of these flaws is the Eagles mascot Swoop.

As I was surfing around the Eagles website today in hopes of a new blog post from Chris McPherson or the Eagles Cheerleaders blog -- which incidentally hasn't updated since April 24th -- I stumbled upon a link to meet Santa Swoop.
Santa SWOOP at the Eagles End Zone
On Saturday, Dec. 9 from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM, kids can have their photo taken with Santa SWOOP at the Eagles End Zone in the Rockvale Square Outlets in Lancaster, PA. Kids 14 and under will receive a FREE photo and a $5 off coupon good towards Eagles Merchandise.
Well bird feathers! We missed our chance to meet Santa Swoop.

Who in their right mind would go see Santa Swoop when they could have gone to see PHANTA CLAUS on the very same day?!? Phanta Claus: now that's a Philadelphia sports mascot masquerading as Saint Nick I can get behind. Swoop? I heard Tiny Tim has been looking for a Christmas bird to roast up.
