Let's hope the Philadelphia Eagles have more luck with Google Glass than NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had with Twitter. 

CrowdOptic, a startup from San Francisco, announced that the Philadelphia Eagles will be the first NFL team to test out Google Glass at their home stadium, Lincoln Financial Field.

"We are looking forward to testing this technology and finding ways to incorporate it into our gameday presentation," said Brian Papson, Eagles Vice President of Marketing. "Our goal is always to provide our fans with unique and behind-the-scenes perspectives through a variety of different sources and we're excited about the potential of using Google Glass technology through CrowdOptic."

The technology has already been used in the NBA by the Indiana Pacers, Sacramento Kings and Orlando Magic, and feeds were broadcast to jumbotrons.

Do you think Google Glass on the football field is a good idea? Post in the comments below and let me know what you think!
