Since the Philadelphia Eagles always seem to come so close to winning the playoffs or having a great season and always just fall short, the birds must have a lot of angry fans.
Angry birds, one could say. LOLz!
The Eagles have teamed up with Rovio Entertainment, the creators of one of the most popular game apps: Angry Birds!
Apparently, an Eagles themed Angry Birds spin-off game is being produced and the Angry Birds themselves will be making appearances at Eagles games and on the scoreboard.
The Eagles senior VP of business said:
"This is, for them, a test the waters type of a partnership and we desperately wanted to go first. We did not want anyone else in this country to have a partnership with these guys before we did. It's a pretty competitive avian sports nickname landscape out there."
As far as sports teams go, the Eagles are lucky that the Ravens, Falcons, Cardinals, Seahawks, Penguins, Mighty Ducks, Blue Jays, Orioles, the other Cardinals, or the Hawks didn't snatch up the Angry Birds partnership first.
