The time is coming, and we can’t wait. No one can! Head over to Lincoln Financial Field right now for the NFC Championship Game, and you’ll find Philadelphia Eagles fans who have been tailgating for quite a while today. Had they been allowed into the parking lot last night, they would have taken up residency then. Perhaps you’ve heard. There is a pretty big, high-stakes game being played today.

The Birds play host to the surging San Francisco 49ers, winners of 12 straight games and the second-seeded team in the National Football Conference. Much of the regular season and the entire NFC postseason slate has led us exactly to where we thought it would, a game featuring the two most talented teams and best-coached teams on this side of the playoff bracket.

Men and women both old and young are dancing in the parking lot. That’s nothing new. That would be the case if this was Week 2 of the preseason schedule. Today is different though. There’s a feeling that something special might happen today!

Check out some of the best sights and sounds of the Eagles NFC Championship Game experience.

Light poles have been greased in the City of Brotherly Love. There will be no climbing, but you can’t keep this football-obsessed fan base from cheering for their beloved Birds. Check out some of the highlights on Twitter. As you might expect, it was hard to find a few that were free of profanity.

None of this should be surprising. We’re talking about the best fans in all of the sports. None of you need to be reminded of that though right? Even those who have run afoul of the law are charged up! Just look at this clip from the end of November.

We’re not sure what this guy did to get himself arrested. We’re unsure if he’s still locked up. We don’t even know what his name is, but nothing and we do mean NOTHING can take a true Birds fan’s mind off of what’s important.

With that, we’ll wrap. The George Halas Trophy is on the line in the NFC Championship Game at 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Fingers are crossed for an Eagles win!
