Football Sunday

The Eagles play this afternoon. Helaine, Stef and I are die hard Eagles fans. We will be on the sofa. There is assigned seating. I will be wedged in the uncomfortable curved section in the corner.

As with any modern American family we will each have a laptop… and Stef an additional Blackberry.

This game is an unexpected pleasure. Not only had we given up on this year’s Eagles, we openly speculated whether McNabb and Andy Reid should be back. Is it too late to say sorry?

It’s like Popeye after a can of spinach. All Of a sudden everyone is fearful of the Eagles. Strange.

Teams master football the way players master golf or poker. Every once in a while you have a streak and confuse it with divine insight. Don’t be fooled. Streaks can’t last. There are bad beat in every pursuit.

Any Eagle team could be out there today. It’s my understand that’s why they still play the games.

    Though I did think the Eagles season was over in mid-November, I NEVER thought McNabb, and in turn Reid, should be offed. I ALWAYS root for the underdog!

    Philadelphia sports fans are a rare breed, combining the best and worst traits of extremely knowledgeable fans with those who are incredibly demanding and never satisfied and those who always expect the worst. It’s quite a combination.

    Do I want the Eagles to get to Tampa and win it all? Of course! But no matter what happens today, in my mind this season HAS been a success for the Eagles.

    GO EAGLES!!! And with the baseball season just around the corner, it’s not too early to say GO PHILLIES!!!
