Eagles' Miles Austin's dad had tires deflated in Philly at Cowboys game

Wednesday April 22nd, 2015

Miles Austin is now a Philadelphia Eagle, but he spent many years as a wide receiver for the team's hated rivals the Dallas Cowboys, and back then he saw a very different side of the team's fans.

Austin spoke with Philadelphia's 94WIP on Tuesday and recalled a time when his father came to support him and the Cowboys at the Eagles home stadium, and his car paid the price.

"There's different experiences. Theres's experiences my family has had," Austin said. "My dad had three tires deflated when he came to the Philly game my third year."

"He probably came out with a big Austin jersey and told them, who knows," Austin said, when asked how the fans identified his father. "The good thing was, the tires weren't slashed, they were just deflated so it just took air to fill 'em back up. It could've been slashed and then he would have had to get new tires, but he just called AAA and they filled 'em up later on that night."
