Miller Lite fixed their free beer faux pas for Eagles-Saints

After we alerted you yesterday that Miller Lite was going to provide a free beer to folks down on Bourbon Street if the Saints defeat the Eagles on Sunday, it seems the big beer company realized they were leaving the best city and fanbase in sports out in the cold.

And thirsty.

But they righted things today by announcing they'd provide a free cold one to fans in Philadelphia if the Eagles defeat the Saints on Sunday.

So, free beer will be had somewhere thanks to the result of the Eagles-Saints game, we just don't know where yet.

Here's the announcement:

While the challenge is on in New Orleans, Miller Lite is all about celebrating the passion football fans have for their teams everywhere. To add to the excitement of Sunday’s game, Miller Lite will be covering the first round of celebratory brews at select bars in Philly if the Eagles prevail. Fans must be 21+ to enjoy an ice-cold Miller Lite beer. Limit one per customer, while supplies last.

The specifics on when/where you can cash in on this promise have not been determined yet. Rest assured, we want free beer in Philly and NOT New Orleans.

What an honor for Mike McKenna.

Not only did he get to meet Gritty Wednesday night, but he also got the Flyers' mascot to sign his mask, which sports a drawing of the fuzz ball (see story).

Looks like Gritty didn't love McKenna questioning his pregame meal — it's obviously 10 plates of pasta … the guy needs fuel.

McKenna is the Flyers' seventh goalie of the season, while the Flyers are the seventh team of McKenna's career.

Now he'll have a special signature to always remember it.

Eagles fan mad about loss allegedly put girlfriend's dog in microwave

Eagles fans have been known to take their frustrations out on horses in the past, but now we can add cruelty to canines to the long list of strange behavior by Philadelphia sports fans.

Kirsten Gaskins was arrested on Sunday evening at a hotel in Hanover Township and has been charged with simple assault, harassment, cruelty to animals, and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

Gaskins was at the hotel as "a getaway" from Philadelphia with her girlfriend. She was drinking while watching the Eagles game against the Saints and allegedly became angry once the Saints won, according to police. Gaskins allegedly struck the victim in the face multiple times before threatening to harm her Pomeranian.

Gaskins was not present when police arrived but when she returned and they entered the room they found the dog inside of the microwave. The microwave was never turned on and the dog was reportedly OK.

It's unclear if the Pomeranian had any rooting interest in the game. Dogs usually don't care.
