Here I am living in Boston, home of perhaps the best football team in the history of the game.
And I could care less. Instead I am stuck rooting for the hapless Eagles who, let’s face it, just suck.
To share what it is like being an Eagles fan, I have copied below an email I got yesterday from my brother (also an Eagles fan):
Q: What do you call 53 people sitting around a TV watching the Super Bowl?
A: The Philadelphia Eagles.
Q: How do you keep a Philadelphia Eagle out of your yard?
A: Put up goal posts.
Q: Where do you go in Philadelphia in case of a tornado?
A: The Linc – they never have a touchdown there.
Q: What do you call a Philadelphia Eagle with a Super Bowl Ring ?
A: A thief.
Q: Why doesn’t Camden have a professional football team?
A: Because then Philadelphia would want one.
Q: What’s the difference between the Philadelphia Eagles & a dollar bill?
A: You can still get four quarters out of a dollar bill.
Q: What do the Philadelphia Eagles and possums have in common?
A: Both play dead at home and get killed on the road.
Q: How many Philadelphia Eagles does it take to win a Super Bowl?
A: Nobody knows and we may never find out.
And finally …
Q: What do the Philadelphia Eagles and Billy Graham have in common?
A: They both can make 70,000 people stand up and yell ‘Jesus Christ’!
As my Dad used to say, “oy veh.”
