Portis's Mother Unfazed

One bad experience in Philadelphia apparently hasn't prompted Clinton Portis's mother, Rhonnel Hearn, to change her travel plans for Monday. Hearn intends to attend the game at Lincoln Financial Field, the site of her altercation with an Eagles fan in the final game of the 2005 regular season.

"It don't matter," Portis said of the incident. "She's going to be at every game I have until God stops her from coming. Nothing else is going to stop her."

While seated in the end zone with family and friends in the fourth quarter of the Redskins' 31-20 victory, Hearn allegedly was doused with beer tossed by an Eagles fan. In response, Portis's mother "busted some lady in the nose," Portis said at the time.

After that, Hearn watched part of the game from the Redskins' sideline.

Despite her history in the stadium, and the fact that Eagles fans are considered among the most exuberant in the league, Hearn plans to root for her son, Portis said.

"We ain't running from nothing. We ain't worried about nothing," he said. "She's going to come, she's going to sit in the stands and . . . enjoy the game."

also the eagles are talking about it on their forums. look here

Eagles fans are considered among the most exuberent in the league,

This is the most political correct term I have ever heard for Eagles fans. :laugh:

A buddy of mine is an iggles fan and he started laughing when he heard that that girl had a beer thrown on her (he's proud of the rep eagles fans have). What he didn't hear was that she hit that girl in the nose. He laughed.

Can't check the Iggles board, as I refuse to register and join any sort of board that retains such filth. However, I have to ask this; Did Portis's mother actually pop the culprit that threw the beer, or some random woman in the crowd? Was anything ever actually figured out from that tussle?

BTW, I'm sure she'll have security with her this time. If not, then I'd have to question her intelligence......;)

How I percieved the article was that they made it sound like it was some random woman! I dont know for sure though.

Yeah I like that fact that she is going up to philly and standing up for herself. I know lots of skins fans that dont even think twice about going up to philly bc they are afraid of something happening. We all need to take a page out of her book and go to the game!

Momma Portis is badass.

Last year I sat pretty close to her at the games. She was escorted out of the stadium by security after every game when everyone had cleared out the stands. She's pretty friendly. When she saw that I was on crutches from surgery, she asked me how I got so broke! :)
