    Oh yes...after much spent frustration and having found a faith unshakable, this year, unlike the year before, the year before that, and the year preceding those other two...this year the Eagles will win it all!!!!

    Then I will possess a by-proxy athleticism greater than all those other mistaken fans of teams left behind and broken...

    Bring me home Donovan...

    I thought it was the Steelers year this season. Or am I in the wrong sport?

    He's talking about basketball. Except he's a few months late - the Boston Red Sox won the championship, and then the league's owners locked all the players out.

    Or something like that.

    Splunge was joking using a mishmash of the North American sports leagues. The Eagles are the American Football team that plays in Philadelphia. They have a fairly decent history of ineptitude and notoriously bad tempered and nasty fans (Philadelphia fans have actually booed Santa Claus). Their team seems likely to make it to the Super Bowl (the championship game) this year (unlike the last several years where they lost games that they should have won to get there). Nonetheless, they likely will find a way to lose so as to satisfy the gods of American football destiny and continue the misery of their fans. (The city of Philadelphia is perhaps the biggest city in America that hasn't won a championship in any sport in quite a long while -- I think since the early '80's.)

    I have several friends from Philly (I went to college there) and they are all happily miserable about this (yes, it's possible to wallow in misery and enjoy it).

    Bah... they're from Philadelphia, teams from Philadelphia always choke when it really matters. The Sixers, the Eagles, the Phillies, the Flyers, they are all cursed.

    Unfortunately we don't get much NFL coverage on Free-to-air TV so I don't even know ehat the hell happened most of the season. Won't stop me watching the Superbowl though even without knowing who's in it.

    I think it would be more merciful if the Eagles lose in the NFC championship again. Getting destroyed in the Superbowl by the Pats will crush the already demoralized fan base.

    Go Pats, beat the Steelers.

    A quote from Freddy Mitchell (wide reciever) following the Eagles routing of the Vikings...

    “I’m a special player,” he said, wearing an Indiana Jones hat and bow tie. “I’ve just got to thank my hands for being so great. I’ve just been chillin’ being patient, being humble. I knew my time was going to come.”


    Next victim...Atlanta and Micheal Vick...

    Hey, Vick may be fast (very, very, very fast) but he is skinny and small and if Trotter or the Freak go head first into his torso...well, luckily since the Link now has natural grass, the blood should soak into the soil. That skinny finch better make sure an Eagles doesn't get too close...

    And by the way...Eagles fans are the kindest people you'll ever meet...

    P A T S

    PATS, PATS, PATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    I must admit, the Eagles were better than I thought they were. I thought the Pats would easily win by 17.

    Dynasty is such a lovely word.

    Back on topic...

    I wasn't rooting for either teams during this year's SuperBowl. Now if the Raiders or the Packers were there, then I'd have a team to root for! :rolling:

    I'm pissed off at the Eagles. They just seemed to give up sometime during the middle of the 3rd quarter. What was that bs in the last 4 minutes of the game where they dilly-dallied to every play and missed every friggin' opportunity to stop the clock. And don't get me started on the defense...gah!! I wanted to strangle somebody. It's the Superbowl, you asses! You play every play like it's your last on earth! They just looked like they didn't give a damn anymore.

    I wanted Philly to win, because I almost always go for the underdog - that, and I get sick of teams who win more than twice in a row. IMO, Philly lost because they didn't have the heart to win it, period. New England is a superior team, but there's no doubt in my mind that had the Eagles wanted it bad enough, they could've taken it. And they just didn't. NO HEART.

    That said - Terrell Owens did play exceptionally well, despite his injury. Maybe God really IS his doctor! :D

    Both of the teams played rather bad, plenty of mistakes to go around. I hoped that the Eagles would win it but if I know something about American Football it is that the Patriots is an extremely good team. I was afraid that they would steamroll over the Eagles but the men from Philly put up a good fight.
