Eagles Fan Runs Into Pillar: Two Angles
They say there are two sides to every story. Remember the Eagles fan that ran into a pillar in the subway tunnel? Well, we have two videos and they are synced up side by side. Check it out!
For some laughs, here's the story about the man in the video:
"When Jigar Desai got a text from his friend Brian Halloran after the NFC title game Sunday, he said it wasn’t him in the already-viral video.
“Did you run into a post near the subway?” Halloran texted him. > “No really... there is a vid online.”
“Not me,” Desai replied. “Would have been possible but not me.” Desai says he wasn’t ashamed. The video hadn’t loaded, and he didn’t think his pregame crash into a pole at the Ellsworth-Federal station on the Broad Street Line was much of a thing.
Then the video loaded. “Oh shit,” he replied. “That’s me.”
I was pregaming at my brother’s place. He lives in South Philly. We watched the Pats-Jaguars game, then headed down to the Linc. And a train was leaving the Linc and going into Center City; we were waiting for a train coming on the platform across from it. And I just saw Eagles fans, and it got me all excited.
At the end of it, when I was running toward the train I just wanted to give a final “Go Birds!” to the folks that were there. And that’s when the pole made a great tackle."
