Good News, You Can Wear the Underdog Mask to the Game! Bad News, They Are All Sold Out!
Last weekend Eagles fans were probably still in mid celebration when they noticed a creepy dog appearing on their screen. Immediately after the potential game winning touchdown went right through Julio Jones’ hands, cameras were immediately drawn to offensive lineman Lane Johnson. This 6′ 6″ beast was casually strolling through the press with a latex German Shepard mask to embrace the underdog tag the team was given.
Vegas had the Eagles as underdogs going into the last Saturday’s game despite being the #1 seed at home. This did not deter the team one big. In fact Lane Johnson and some teammates actually welcomed the title and took it a step further with an odd purchase on Amazon. For $10.99 Lane purchased the dog mask that will now be forever apart of Eagles folklore. As soon as word got out about where to find the mask, fans bum rushed the site and within hours they were sold out!
With anything that goes viral, there are always folks looking to cash in. The same masks are not available on the secondary market such as eBay but are going for as much as $200 a pop! However, fans lucky enough to flex their Amazon Prime membership and snag one, The Linc will be allowing mans to wear them in the stands. (You must have them off at security check points).
Even with the W Saturday, Eagles are once again going into this week’s matchup a 3 point underdog. Wentz being out is of course the biggest factor but the Eagles are proving that it’s a team game and the surrounding cast is more than capable of bringing home the Lombardi trophy. The Vikings are coming in ready to scrap but as Eagles fans will now tell you, they’re barking up the wrong tree.
