Beacuse the Eagles were 2-12 that season? That's a good reason
mostly because the "santa claus" was a drunken mess and his beard was falling off, among other things. seems like a good reason to me.
Sounds like you may need to revisit the "Santa Claus incident" yourself.
Frank Olivo -- the erstwhile Santa in question -- wasn't drunk, nor was his red suit in tatters that December day in 1968 when he walked onto the field for the halftime show, only to be met by a chorus of jeers and a snowball fusillade from Eagles fans.
Either way the fans of Philly probably get a little more flak than they deserve. They are under the microscope more than other cities around the country. That's just the way it's become for Philly fans, here's 12 reasons why
it is that way, including the "Santa Claus incident". Stories of adults intentionally throwing up on children aren't helping their cause.
