Saturday night we attended the Lesean McCoy Celebrity Softball Game at Clipper Magazine Stadium.  The Eagles were taking on some other stars from the NFL and the 76ers. We got there early to try to get some autographs and take in the home run derby.  There were tons of Eagles fans there already and we knew getting autographs would be tough.  Not too long after we got there, Brian Westbrook came out and we each got a card signed.  We were also able to get the Eagles receivers coach and Jamar Chaney on the game roster.  During the home run derby the crowd went nuts...Michael Vick came walking out.  He wasn't on any roster or didn't even have a jersey but he was put in the lineup to bat last.  During the game he came out of the dugout and started to sign autographs.  Dad brought some extra Eagles cards just in case someone else showed up :)  I was able to get my Vick card signed!  In about the 5th inning we noticed Desean Jackson take his jersey off and head towards the exit.  We ran down to the parking lot where there was a mob of people waiting.  I ran over to the other side of the parking lot and was able to get him to sign and take a picture before he got in his car to leave.  All in all it was a good night.  It was a large, crazy crowd but lots of fun!  Despite the cheers for Vick, the loudest ovation came for Brian Westbrook and the biggest booooos came out everytime Drew Rosenhaus was announced.  Oh, the Eagles beat the NFL team 18-16.
