Philly brewery offering free beer alternative to Bud Light

As I've stated many times, free beer is great. And Lane Johnson's pact with Bud Light to bring free beer to the citizens of Philadelphia during the Super Bowl Championship parade is wonderful.

But you know what's even better than free beer from an international beer conglomerate?

Free beer from a local Philly joint.

Yards Brewing Co. will offer a free Philly Pale Ale to fans who wander off the parade route on Thursday and over to their beautiful and spacious new tasting room on Spring Garden Street. I was at their tasting room on the Saturday before the NFC Championship Game and confirm it is very Eagles-friendly.

BillyPenn.com's Danya Henninger spoke with Yards founder and president  -- and big Birds' fan -- Tom Kehoe about the fantastic gesture.

“We’ve waited so long,” Kehoe said, “that it just doesn’t seem right Philadelphians should be drinking a foreign owned, mass produced beer on such a proud day in our city’s history.”

Hard to argue with that.

So, that's at least two beers you can get gratis thanks to Doug Pederson and Nick Foles' having the gutsiest of guts. I'm going to guess a parade goer or two with a backpack will kindly offer you a can somewhere else along the way.

The parade is going to be lit. See you there. Drink responsibly. And as the mayor said, don't be a knucklehead.

Malcolm Jenkins explains why he flipped off Sean Payton

The New Orleans Saints had their way with the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday to the tune of a 48-7 victory (see Roob's observations).

The frustration clearly boiled over for the Eagles players, including safety Malcolm Jenkins, who was caught on camera giving the finger in the direction of his former head coach Sean Payton.

Jenkins was beaten badly on a 4th-and-7 play when New Orleans was up big in the second half. Jenkins was caught one-on-one with Saints running back Alvin Kamara, who beat him for a 37-yard touchdown.

NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark spoke to Jenkins exclusively following the incident and asked him about it. You can watch that video above.

"I'm a competitor. I love Sean to death. I know what type of guy and coach he is. That was more so personal between me and him," Jenkins told Clark.

"We talked after the game. It's all good. I know Sean. They're going to go for it. I was more so upset that it was on me," Jenkins said. "I got a lot of respect for what they're doing, especially Sean."

Doug Pederson and Carson Wentz both also spoke to the media following the game, saying they were excited to go back to work following Sunday's loss. That makes two of us.

Eagles fans erupt with anger to team's final score Tweet

Eagles fans are upset. 

We get it.

The Eagles' 48-7 loss to the Saints this evening was painful to watch, and that’s putting it lightly. 

Since the Eagles' social media team may not be reading their mentions right now in a form of self-preservation (understandably), we decided to peruse their social media responses after the loss. 

It’s a dark and scary place filled with a lot of animosity and aggressive memes. But, understandably so.  

We found some of the most outrageous responses to match that equally outrageous loss. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There aren’t enough tweets to express all of our emotions right now after that loss, but these come pretty darn close. Stay angry, Eagles fans.
