Ok, I was roommates with a bunch of Eagles fan last semester and they yell out loud and Spell E-A-G-L-E-S.They even did it in that Invincible movie. I saw the Jets do it on TV today too. I've never witnessed any other team outside that region do it. Why do they do it? Are they trying to reassure everyone they are able to spell? It's sure annoying, I want to punch them in the face everytime I hear it.

Well for the Eagles it's part of their team song/chant. So if your roommates didn't sing the song they are NOT true Eagles fans. ;)

"Here we go Pittsburgh" is the chant for all 3 teams.
