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.
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.
