Another Classy Eagle Fan


Recommended Posts

Philadelphia Eagles fans, long known as some of the toughest in sports, earned themselves a great deal of measure with their respectful restraint during Sunday's game against the New York Giants when opposing receiver Victor Cruz was severely injured. The fans remained quiet, earning themselves a great deal of praise there.

Unfortunately, one guy ruined it for the rest of them before the game.

According to multiple reports, an Eagles fan stole a prosthetic leg from a Vietnam veteran musician who frequently plays before games at Lincoln Financial Field. That's right: A fan stole a dude's leg.

The good news: The leg apparently has been found and is reportedly being returned to Sonny Forriest Jr., who takes his leg off when it becomes uncomfortable. Evidently him removing the leg was an invitation for a moron fan to run off with it.

The leg was found a few hours after the game by a subway driver.

A female fan in her 20s wearing Eagles gear, per CSN Philadelphia, broke Forriest's microphone, apologized for that and then did something he never could have expected.

"She snatched my leg," Forriest said. "And ran!"

Prior to that, some fans were having some fun with the leg.

“There were some friends who were partying with the leg, then they put it back,” Forriest said, per

Fans were posting photos of the alleged perpetrator, but many of those have since been taken down. The good news is that Forriest has his leg back. Police are still investigating.
