THE EAGLES may want to wear golden slippers instead of cleats Sunday night against the Bears.
That way they could strut alongside the Duffy String Band, which will perform at halftime before what is sure to be a packed house at the Linc.
"The Mummers have paraded through the streets of Philadelphia for more than a hundred years," said Eagles president Don Smolenski. "We are excited to have the Duffy String Band strut into Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday."
Duffy captain Ted Kudrick is hoping to rev up the fans and inspire the team.
"We are all huge fans of the team and several of our members, including my wife, have been season ticketholders for years," said Kudrick. "For me, I am looking forward to being out on the field with my 7-year-old son, Jake, who idolizes the players and who has a Nick Foles jersey as the number one item on his Christmas list this year.
"If all goes well, who knows . . . maybe the Mummers Parade won't be the only parade going down Broad Street this year!"
MCW's jersey a hit
Sixers rookie Michael Carter-Williams is keeping some good company.
His jersey is tops in sales among NBA rookies and No. 15 overall.
Not bad for a guy who's only played 15 games this season.
Carter-Williams, who wears No. 1, has missed the last seven games because of a skin infection in his knee. He may return to the lineup tonight against the visiting Brooklyn Nets.
There are no surprises in the top five best-selling jerseys: The Heat's LeBron James' No. 6 is the top-seller both domestically and worldwide. He is followed by the Lakers' Kobe Bryant (No. 24), the Bulls' Derrick Rose (1), the Thunder's Kevin Durant (35) and Knicks' Carmelo Anthony (7).
The list is based on overall sales over the last 3 months from adidas and NBAStore.com.
