Below is this week’s edition. Here’s the last one we published; it’s meant to live in your inbox. Sign up for the newsletter here.

Not For Laundry

Whether you’re into it or not, there’s something magical about football season.

There’s just such an inspirational sense of camaraderie uniting us all through the power of Eagles’ Nation.


That is, until someone throws the remote at the TV. And they will. Oh, they will.

The News
