So, the Philadelphia Eagles held a Super Bowl ring ceremony back in June, and it was an event to remember. From the green carpet, to Meek Mill performing “Dreams and Dreams”, the entire team and city were celebrating this victory from the second the final whistle blew.
Everything was fine. The team has done the right thing by giving the old players and staff members their rings and making the win as good as it should be. They’ve even opened up a contest for one lucky person to win their very own SB ring and donate to the group’s autism challenge.
There is one group, however, surprisingly left off the “get a ring” list: Cheerleaders.
Did they throw in the towel or do they play in the big game? No. But not even the mysterious secretary who inspired the flea-flicker in the NFC Championship game (who was fired under Chip Kelly). And just like Carol Wilson got a ring from Jeff Lurie, so should the cheerleaders. But instead, they get pendants. (I mean, that’s cool and all, but WTF!?)
It would have been different if the team hadn’t been so liberal in giving out rings to current and former people associated with the franchise. If you are going to celebrate with everyone; which probably includes people showing up every game day and adding a little cash to Lurie’s pocket in the process. (Proceeds from the calendar sales will certainly not go to the girls.)
This is the one thing the team has done this season that I don’t agree with.
