Cowboys fan claims jersey profiling in Philly airport

A Cowboys fan is convinced she was unfairly targeted by airport security screeners at Philadelphia International Airport because of the Jason Witten jersey she was wearing.

Alyson Galen tells CBS in 3 in Philadelphia that she was pulled out of a security line last month and patted down before even getting to a metal detector. A screener approached her after she was cleared.

“He walked up to me and said ‘how’s it feel to be a Cowboys fan in Philadelphia?’ . . . I did tell him ‘wow,’” Galen said.

Mrs. Galen didn’t file an official complaint for what seems like a relatively minor nuisance.

If only she was a PFT regular, she could have responded with a clever reference to the 0-3gles. Because that never gets old.
