Eagles Anniversary

While most of the music industry celebrates the 25th anniversary of the release of Michael Jackson's Thriller album, another musical milestone is being forgotten. By most, not me.

Yes, this year marks the 20th anniversary of one of the most celebrated sports songs, and videos, of all time. Well, not quite, but the anniversary part is right.

Back in 1988, members of the Philadelphia Eagles recorded Buddy's Watchin' You, a "rap" song in the same vein as The Super Bowl Shuffle done by the Bears in '85.

Sad to see just how many of these Eagles are no longer with us. Reggie White, Jerome Brown, Andre Waters.

On the plus side, it's fun to see these guys include a few of the white guys. Heck, even kicker Luis Zendejas gets in on the fun -- his section alone is worth watching.

And who's the Sly Stallone clone in the sound room?

Plus, you know as soon as this video shoot was done, the team took those two women into some other room for a little brotherly love.
