Ok, who is watching Sunday night football?

I'm in a hotel room in Indianapolis and can't figure out how to work my TV (seriously), but I heard Joe Biden was BOOED by Philadelphia Eagles fans on NBC's Sunday night football.

Can any of our football-watching commentors confirm?

Update: Yup.

AP: Eli Manning threw two TD passes and John Carney kicked two field goals to give the NFC East-leading New York Giants a 20-17 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles at halftime on Sunday night.

Trying to slice a game off New York’s lead, Philadelphia scored two touchdowns off Giants’ turnovers. Donovan McNabb threw a TD pass and lined up as a wideout on a trick play score that gave the Eagles their first touchdown. David Akers kicked a 29-yard field goal as the first half expired to make it 20-17.

The Giants and Eagles played in front of a special guest. Vice President-elect Joe Biden watched the game in a luxury suite with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie. Biden was booed when he was showed on the video screen.

I understand, however, that the Eagles have also booed Santa Claus in the past. They even pelted him with a few snowballs.
