Philadelphia Reporter Howard Eskin Claimed He Would Bike To San Francisco If Eagles Lost To 49ers

During a random search on Twitter for the #49ers hashtag brings me to a lot of things. There's a ton of fan talk, which is what I'm not after, and occasionally a gem of information, which is definitely what I'm after. So I came across this Tweet which talks about a Philadelphia radio host - Howard Eskin - and his bold declaration. On KNBR, he said that there was no chance the 49ers would beat the Eagles, and that, if the 49ers won, he'd ride a bike from Philly to San Francisco.

Then I found this post from Larry Brown, with the audio attached to it. Eskin goes on to ask "Who have the 49ers beat?" and drones on about how much of a disgrace you'd have to be to lose to the 49ers. I strongly urge you go over to that post and listen to the audio, because the text below doesn't do it justice.

Eskin calls it a "stone-cold mortal lock," and says "There's no way the Eagles go 1-3. None. Absolutely none." It's also amusing to see the other things Eskin has done, as noted by Brown in the post above.Things like mentioning Vick being out for 2-4 weeks with his hand injury, and Philly's interest in Brett Favre.  I think it's safe to say there's no bike trip in Eskin's future, but it couldn't hurt to get at him on Twitter to pester him about it. You know, if you're feeling like it.
