Video: ‘Santa’ interrupts Chip Kelly’s news conference

Dec 23, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT


It’s not often Santa comes off looking like a dope. “Santa Claus” decided to drop in on Chip Kelly’s day-after press conference on Monday to give the Philadelphia Eagles an early present, tell a corny joke or two and let everybody know that Nick Foles is his quarterback for the next 1,000 years, too.

In case you didn’t get the reference, that’s FOX 29’s / 94 WIP’s Howard Eskin under the costume, and if you want a super serious take on this all-important matter, I think it was poor form to promise the coach an Eagles win over Dallas is Week 17 for Christmas.

Chip had the last laugh—perhaps the only laugh—telling Eskin, “That’s the best suit you’ve ever worn.”

Too bad the tropical weather melted all of the snow… you know what I’m getting at.

    I didn’t realize that Eskin was still alive. Who knew?

    He’s the Burger King, he needs to wear the right suit!

    Poor Chip, he’s going to need surgery to get Eskin off him.

    So many awkward handshakes in only 60 seconds
