If you're a Philadelphia Eagles fan reading this right now, then you've likely spent some time over the past few days clicking around on the Eagles official web store or NFL.com to see what kind of sweet Eagles Super Bowl LII swag you can pick up prior to Sunday's big game against the New England Patriots.
It's for times like these that god invented credit cards, am I right?
But ordering something the week of the Super Bowl and hoping it arrives on time is a gamble I wasn't willing to take. So I headed on down on Tuesday afternoon to the Eagles Pro Shop at Lincoln Financial Field to get the goods directly from the mouth of the beast.

The results were somewhat disappointing.
What I really wanted was the Nick Foles shirsey with the Super Bowl LII "patch" on it. They had them on the NFL Shop online. This is obviously a timeless item. Eagles win the Super Bowl, Nick Foles is a legend forever. Eagles lose the Super Bowl, a Nick Foles' SB patch shirsey will be totally en vogue at a music festival in ten years. It's a sound investment.
Only they didn't have any of the Super Bowl shirseys. In fact, the SB-specific gear was somewhat lacking. You could get a jersey with the patch, but I'm not much of a jersey guy.
There was plenty of NFC Championship gear, but again, I'm not really looking to celebrate a conference championship. I wanted the Super Bowl LII logo swag which there wasn't a ton of.
Perhaps the dopest item was the Nike warmup jackets that the players wore on Opening Night on Monday in Minnesota. But I wasn't prepared to drop two-hundo plus on one of those.
I wanted some Super Bowl logo swag: like koozies or pint glasses or anything beer-related. All they really had were pins and flags with SB LII logos on them. There was one or two solid SB t-shirts but none that made me want to purchase them.
So I picked up the "PHILADELPHIA" hat Eagles players were wearing on Media Night for a steep $40, an official Super Bowl program for $18, a Super Bowl child's size football
for myself for my nephew for $20, and just some other random non-SB stuff I couldn't pass up, like the hat Black Thought rocked at the NFC Championship halftime show.

This was my final score. Bye, bye $141.04, I'll miss you.
