Arrow What an INCREDIBLE month I have had!

Hey guys. I hope everyone has been having a great week! I don’t normally post any threads here outside of cards, but honestly I have had such an incredible past month that I really would like to share with you all.

For starters, I have been working on an Eagles mancave in our basement over the last few months or so. It is certainly not the best mancave in the world, but for a five-person family with me being the only Eagles fan, I can’t hog the entire room to myself It probably seems pretty bland to some of you guys, but my dad (marathon runner) has his treadmill in this room and a ping-pong table as well, so I’ve tried to make it look as good as possible! I am incredibly happy with it, and I LOVE watching games every Sunday in it!

Yes...I know...the Vick Fathead is in a Falcons uniform...it was either I spend $30 on Vick in a Falcons uniform or $100 for him in the Eagles uniform, so I had to draw the line a little bit (that TV will be mounted soon!)


Vick game-worn jersey against the Falcons in 2011. The Eagles lost 31-35. Vick went 19/28 for 242 yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT, and 3 fumbles (2 lost). Definitely not his best day, but he hooked up with Maclin for 171 yards and 2 TDs on that day! BIG shout out to drumstyx89 for getting me this gamer from ACROSS the country so I could put in in my mancave. The jersey comes with a COA from our GM, and the helmet in the corner is a full-size autographed helmet by Michael Vick (JSA COA).




Hopefully I can get a couch in the room or something more accommodating




Shady Fathead (these Fatheads look AWESOME in rooms) with a Nnamdi Asomugha game worn jersey on October 7, 2012, against the Steelers. The Eagles lost 14-16, and Nnamdi had 8 total tackles (but got burned by Antonio Brown all game haha). Sorry I didn’t get a picture closer up, but there’s dirt and stuff on it, which is really cool!


Mini Fridge is necessary


Just got this in recently, and it is AWESOME! I don’t have it framed yet, so I am open to suggestions since it’s a Michael Vick game worn full uniform! This uniform was worn on January 1, 2013 (last game of the season), and the Eagles won 34-10. Vick went 24/39 for 335 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT, and 1 fumble.


Like I said, I haven’t hung this up yet but I didn’t want to wait to show you all!

Yes, I had to... (I know, too far )


Ironically, a few days after I won this game worn uniform, a game-worn pair of pants popped up on eBay! So at this point, I had a Michael Vick home jersey, a Michael Vick home pants, and a Michael Vick away jersey. Only thing I really needed was a pair of pants, and I figured I’d have two full outfits! So thankfully I won it, so here it is (looks AWESOME). It was worn on August 15, 2013, in a preseason game against the Panthers, to which the Eagles won 14-9. Yes, I know it was preseason, but the intensity of the QB battle pretty much makes it a legimate game, and besides, that was probably the best I could get right? Vick had a perfect game, going 9/10 for 105 yards (his only incomplete pass was an INT on a hail mary).
















Some things in my room





There used to be something in that big gaping space (that’s why it looks weird). Yes, that is an autographed Ice-T picture on the side (HUGE “Law & Order: SVU” fan)




Also within the past month, I went to my FIRST EVER Eagles game against the Giants on October 27th. What an incredible experience, and what an incredible city. Even though the game was miserable for an Eagles fan, the experience was unbelievable, and I had so much fun! At the end of the game, I was able to high-five Jason Avant and DeSean Jackson (big shout out to WilsonValdez for the help with that!), and that was worth it in itself. I didn’t really get the chance to take any pictures of the players or field or anything because I was so depressed with how we were playing, but I did take a few! Enjoy!

CLICK below to watch the video of the band. It's REALLY cool!










































Vick was knocked out of the game in the first half, so I wasn’t able to see much of his explosiveness in real life unfortunately. However, it’s crazy to think that out of all the times I could have seen an Eagles game, I may have seen the last snap Vick will have taken as an Eagle!

Aside from the Eagles game, my dad and I saw many other things in Philly as well such as the UPenn campus (hopefully I’ll be there in two years from now ), the National Constitution Center, Independence Hall, Segway tours, Philly theater shows, the Eastern State Penitentiary (home of Al Capone), and lots of other things I’m probably forgetting because it’s late. All in all, it was definitely the trip of a lifetime!














Back to sunny Seattle, this last month has been marvelous as well. Courseload has taken a lengthy toll on me, but I have been doing well thankfully! I’ve been doing a lot of things in the community as well that have really been great! I’ve been doing a lot of volunteering with a wonderful organization called Toys for Kids, and I’ve gotten to work with a few people along the way this past Saturday at a charity auction!


Marshawn Lynch


Dave Henderson (former MLB player and president of Toys for Kids)


Raul Ibanez (Mariners star)

Miss Teen Washington


Miss Washington






I have established many fantastic partnerships with so many people from this, as well as recently starting to tutor elementary school students, working with special education students, advocating on behalf of the Washington youth’s interests (met with a Supreme Court Judge today to speak about outreach programs to promote legislation on youth-related issues), and many more!



All in all, once again, this has really been an unimaginable month for me, and sorry I didn’t mean to brag if I came off that way (I’ve just been SUPER happy recently!). We are nearing the holidays, and I hope all is jolly, healthy, and well for all of you!

Thanks for looking through this novel, and enjoy the rest of the week!

Awesome stuff man. You've packed a ton of incredible things into the last month. Loving all of the Eagles gear, the man cave looks great.

Side note, did you get a contact high from Marshawn Lynch?

LOL thanks man! I'm pretty sure Marshawn is a bigger Raiders fan than a Seahawks fan though haha

No, EJ

Also, forgot to mention: thanks to EVERYONE who gave me some of the hotspots to go to in Philly while I was there! That was much appreciated! I had my first Philly cheesesteak from Charlie's (is that "the" place to go?), and it is now my favorite food!
