There are few things in this world more intense than the rivalry between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys. There is no love lost between the two teams, or their fans. And the NFL draft took place in Philadelphia over the weekend, so you could expect that every time the Cowboys came to the podium to make their pick, the Philly fans would be sure to give them a warm welcome
.In the second round, former Cowboys wide receiver Drew Pearson stepped to the podium to announce the 60th pick in the draft and trolled Eagles fans in the most epic way possible. Pearson said:
"How about them Cowboys? I want to thank the Eagles fans for allowing me to have a career in the NFL. Thank you! I am honored as an undrafted free agent to be selected to make the Cowboys’ second-round draft pick, and on behalf of the five-time world champion Dallas Cowboys, Hall of Fame owner Jerry Jones, Team Jones and the Jones family, coach Jason Garrett, all the Cowboys players that played before me, that played with me, that played after me, with the second pick and the 60th pick in the second round, the Dallas Cowboys select defensive back from Colorado, Chidobe Awuzie.”
Reading the transcript is one thing, but you need to watch the video below to see the full impact. Well done, Mr. Pearson. Epic troll.
