Silver Linings Links--Matthew Quick

Veterans stadium implosion and other Eagles-related clips:

Exercise: Eagles fandom plays a large role in The Silver Linings Playbook. Some of the specific scenes and occurrences in the novel are shown to be reflected in actual video clips (the Eagles chant, tailgating at the stadium parking lot, fan reactions to Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens). Look at the following videos and then comment upon how they affect your reading of the related scenes in the text: whether they underscore your initial reaction as a reader, whether they give you a different view of the episodes and settings, whether they present evidence that things you had thought hard to believe were in fact based on reality, etc.
