Fifteen of the city’s tallest buildings are bleeding green. And this emerald haze isn’t acid fog, it’s the beacon of Eagles fever. But don’t feel bad about not being able to get to Jacksonville; I can’t afford tickets either. Being broke doesn’t mean you have to miss the comeback of T.O. on Super Bowl Sunday.
