Bret Stuter, Staff Writer

I am one of the few Alaskans who are avid Philadelphia Eagles fans. Having arrived in Alaska five years ago, I have found the NFL experience (where kickoffs begin at an early 9 AM) to be unique and exciting. I remember the days of James Patrick "Happy" Feller - a fourth round draft pick for a kicker who lasted a mere one season. The Philadelphia Eagles were a bad team in those early 70's. I enjoy writing about sports, the outdoors, and other topics.

I became an Eagles fan early in my life despite being from Chicago, Illinois and, fortunately or unfortunately, a fan of all other Chicago sports franchises (minus the Bears).
