It's just autographs, man.

Signing autographs for the fans is a really BIG deal for the Eagles. Today they sent out this release:
Last Man Standing…
When practice broke this morning at 10:40 am, defensive end Jevon Kearse had already made up his mind. He was going to sign every last autograph for the 300 members of the U.S. Military that were invited to practice as guests of the Eagles. At about 11:20 am he looked up after signing the last autograph, saw that he was the last player on the field and headed for the locker room, but he wasn't done yet. He still had to take care of his buddies in the media waiting patiently for him by the locker room. After 10 minutes with the media, he stopped for his second signing session, taking care of another 30 or so fans. It was now an hour since practice broke and he finally entered the locker room. When he was complimented on his extra efforts he simply said, "That's nothing man. They deserve it."

Cheesesteaks at Owens' house

Adding to the circus-like atmosphere outside Terrell Owens home, amid the neighbors and reporters arrived a lunch truck, said Inquirer reporter Keith Pompey. A lunch truck came to the house about 11:20 a.m. and sold five or six cheesesteaks. Photographers then took pictures of Phil Commisso of Joe's Steaks.

Drew Rosenhaus arrives at T.O.'s house

From Inquirer reporter Keith Pompey on Terrell Owens' lawn in Moorestown : It's kind of a circus out here. These guys pulled up in a truck, got out, posed for pictures and got back in. Someone came to the door and said there is T.O. but of course it wasn't. The neighbors are coming by too. Some folks have commented about T.O.'s brown lawn.
