Philadelphia, PA – Perhaps after seeing a group of Sixers fan purchase a billboard in support of ousted GM Sam Hinkie, the remaining Eagles fans in the city collected enough money to purchase an advertisement in support of their beleaguered hero.
The group, who have dubbed themselves “Sam’s Slingers,” successfully raised $15.67 from its collective members, enough for a supportive ad for Bradford to be displayed on the side of a dumpster in an alleyway on Market Street.
President Gregory Keghorne said membership has dwindled substantially since the end of the 2015 season and is currently at an all time low.
“Honestly, $10 of the $15.67 came from me. The other four guys in the group chipped in the last $1.67 and that’s just because I think they thought it would be funny if his face was on the side of a dumpster,” Keghorne said.
“It’s been a tough few months for the Slingers, I’m not going to lie. The singles event was an out and out disaster…just five guys in a bar talking about their love of Sam Bradford. No woman wants that.”
Keghorne noted the dumpster was a “quality” dumpster and typically holds dry product only. It’s on a high volume street with plenty of foot traffic, he said, and was only slightly covered in grime after a few days.
At press time, Sam Bradford reached out to the Slingers and said it was the nicest thing anyone had ever done for him in Philadelphia.
