The Philadelphia Eagles made an inspirational video for their fans


(Michael Perez/AP)

Most football fans don’t need a pep talk to get pumped for their team’s opening game. Philadelphia is no different. But that didn’t stop the team from putting out an inspirational rally video of sorts directed at its fans, who notoriously and eternally seem to be filled with too much vim and vigor already. But in case you’re an Eagles fan who needs more, here you go.

That video is okay, but it could’ve been great if the narrator had been “Mr. G,” aka the best Philadelphia Eagles fan ever. Here he is last season watching the playoffs.

Now, that’s inspirational.
