I think they just grew up in Giants country. There are lots of Jersey Giants fans, even pretty far south..

Now me, I grew up an Eagles fan but grew to really hate the NFL and its role in our culture. The Eagles are just the local representative and don't vary from the norm, so they get the focus of my dislike (hate would be a bit much). Can't shed my upbringing though, so I still root for them vs. Dallas or New England.
Which part? And who are you?

My dad is a Giants fan, so I am a Giants fan. Moved to South Jersey when I was one, so all of my friends growing up were Eagles fans. Giants Eagles games were always a big deal. My Facebook feed this past month has been an unending string of Eagles crap. I hate the Eagles and hope they lose tomorrow.

My story is a little long, and a bit boring. But you asked. I grew up on the northern part of the Jersey shore. I was a Giants fan during the 70s, when they were stinky, and as a kid was a bigger football fan than a baseball fan. I was a lukewarm Yankee fan, but getting to either Yankee Stadium or Shea from that part of NJ was pretty tough. Getting to Giants stadium was a breeze by contrast. I went to several football games as a kid, but my first baseball game was at the Vet, because getting to the Vet really wasn't any tougher, and of course tickets were dirt cheap. The Yankees of the 70s and early 80s were of course good, but really unappealing. In 84, I started college in the Philadelphia area. Around that time, the unappealing Yankees started sucking. And I really began fall in love with Philly, staying there after college until I started grad school. So, while I could never quite give up rooting for the Giants, I decided if I was going to root for a sucky baseball team, it might as well be the Phillies. At least no one could accuse me of being a front runner.

If this was against any team other than New England I think I'd be a mess. Honestly had a hard time rooting for the Pats.

Congrats to all you miscreants.

Got to my parents place last night. So many trucks with Eagles flags and billboards and every #$!&@ store has swag on sale and it's just awful.

I hate everything.

Went up to Philly to watch the NCAA games Fri night/Sat with high school friends. The host's 3 year old was attired in an Eagles LII t-shirt Saturday, and my buddy kept telling him to say fly Eagles fly and give me a high five because I was so excited about the Super Bowl.

It was effective trolling with a 3 year old.

I would mark myself down as still not thrilled this happened, and looking at the Eagles rings is not improving matters.
