Evan Mathis Makes a ‘Splash’: Philadelphia Eagles O-Lineman Urinates on IRS Building
Evan Mathis, a commonly outspoken offensive lineman for the Philadelphia Eagles, decided to give the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) a piece of his mind (or bodily waste) yesterday when he posted a picture of himself urinating on the Washington, D.C. IRS headquarters building to his Instagram account.
While plenty of Americans have their own feelings about the IRS and its duties, most of which being negative, few decide to take matters into their own hands.
The photo of Mathis’ tasteless act, which can be easily obtained with a simple online search, features the 6′ 5″ Eagle sporting a walking boot on his left leg, with his back to the camera, in an obvious “stance of relief,” if I may, facing a sign in front of the D.C. IRS building.
There is no doubt that the process of urinating on something with cause is one of the most disrespectful and degrading things that one can do. This act is usually synonymous with rebelling against a movement, company or idea, while also showing a shameless sense of disapproval.
I expect a swift, and likely insincere, apology from Mathis and his representation, but let’s be real, he knew exactly what he was doing when he posted the picture for the world to see, and he knew exactly how the majority of the public would react.
I bet Mathis is arrogantly basking in the wide-spread critical backlash as we speak.
The Eagles are quickly developing a bad reputation in 2013, as star RB LeSean McCoy was in the news also this week for allegedly assaulting a woman aboard a ‘party bus’ in 2012.
It will be interesting to see just how new Eagles head coach Chip Kelly handles this duo of trouble-makers, as he is now dealing with NFL professionals as opposed to kids in college.
