Eagles fans are a passionate and often nutty bunch. From traveling across the country to see their Birds on the road, to bringing some of the most insane tailgate setups to the Linc parking lots on Sundays, or even building a replica 700 Level in their home's garage, Philadelphia fans never seem to do anything to a small scale.
ESPN and StubHub have a contest of sorts called the Hall of Fans in which three of the all-time best fans will get recognized and receive a prize. Representing the Eagles is a guy named Brent who has one sick garage.
In his own words about the space, which he calls "The Brent:"
I have been an Eagles fan for over 30 yrs, through the good times and
the bad times but never stopped believing.I never miss a game just ask
my wife.With my barroom oveflowing with people I decided 9 yrs ago I
needed to build a football room. I closed in my garage and built my
tribute to Veteran Stadium, with a 400, 500 600 and of course 700 level
with lots of memorabilia. On game days the room is full of crazed Eagles
Fans none more crazy them me. The room is called "THE BRENT" not many
fans can say they have a room named after them. It is all for the love
of my Eagles and it has taken on a life of it's own.
Check out the full video of his Veteran Stadium-like setup here. We suggest tossing him a vote. Philadelphia needs to win something.
The only thing The Brent appears to be missing is a hand-painted replica of Lincoln Financial Field in the backyard.

About NBC internships
Despite coming off an 11-20 season, Saint Joseph's was picked to finish third in the Atlantic 10 preseason poll released this week.
It's the highest the Hawks have been picked to finish since 2012-13 when they were the preseason favorite.
St. Joe's went just 4-14 in the conference last season after winning the A-10 with a 13-5 conference record the previous year. The Hawks have won the A-10 twice in the last four seasons.
Phil Martelli enters his 23rd season as head coach, and he has all five starters coming back. The Hawks lost some key players last season. Shavar Newkirk was averaging 20.3 points per game until he tore his ACL in the conference opener. Lamarr Kimble was averaging 15.5 points and leading the team in assists when he fractured his foot in February.
Newkirk was named to the preseason All-Conference Second Team; Kimble and Charlie Brown Jr. were third-teamers.
St. Joe's begins its season on Nov. 11 at Toledo, with the Hawks' home opener coming the following Saturday, Nov. 18 against Princeton.
