The Middies are The Checkdown's midseason awards for the best pop culture x football moments of Week 1 thru 9. Each day this week, we'll present nominees for the best celebrations and reveal the winner on Friday.
The Eagles' Fall Classic Vibes
The 2017 MLB postseason was one of the most memorable in recent history. Four of the seven series were pushed to a winner-take-all game and it all ended with a record-breaking World Series.
Two-time AL MVP Mike Trout was not a part of the 2017 playoffs, so the New Jersey native spent downtime watching his favorite NFL team -- the Eagles.
Packers' Bobsled Team
Fun fact: Average temperatures in Green Bay range from 9 to 24 degrees Fahrenheit in January. In Jamaica, January temperatures typically hover between 70 and 82 degrees. The frozen tundra of Lambeau is obviously a bit more equipt for bobsledding than the sand in Negril.
