Long Odds

I have extremely mixed feelings about the brutality and commercialism of American football, but I grew up in Philly and the Eagles are getting ready to play the Patriots in the Super Bowl. Of course, I have a jacket. ;)

Thirteen years ago, in the only other Super Bowl that the Eagles have made it to, the Pats beat the Eagles like a drum. I fear that it is going to happen again, just like before, but I am lashed to the mast to view the spectacle anyway. Been waiting over 50 years for a win... may have to wait some more. “Long suffering” describes it.

Go, Eagles! :)

52 years in the making. 9:20 pm CST. They did it. 🎆🎉🎊
Go Eagles!!

Since our Vikings lost out, I'm cheering for the Eagles. In the warmth of my sewing room, 20 miles away from the action.

I really don't care for football, but will "stoop" to watching the Super Bowl. Given my ties to the Philadelphia area, I too will root for the Eagles.

I'm writing this during the last minutes, and it seems like the Eagles will win!

Late in the day, so the game's over. You must be very happy. PS I just don't get American football, they seem to throw the ball far more often that it's ever kicked.
