Let it be known right now that I like the Eagles. Always have and always will. That being said and having spent most of the past two weeks in Eagles country – I am getting a little tired. Tired of that cheer. It’s been everywhere I’ve gone in the area. I get it, the fans are happy. They are excited. But enough is enough already. My only saving grace with this is that a version of this didn’t erupt at my son’s college graduation from Temple University this past Friday.
I do want them to win the Super Bowl. I want my best friend Christine (who is a die hard fan, season ticket holder for twenty plus years) to be happy. What I don’t want is for the city to be destroyed, win or lose. It’s a great city, but has a mostly undeserved reputation for…hooligans and shenanigans. Plus two of my three children live in the city, and quite frankly I will be afraid for their safety later tonight.
So fly Eagles fly – beat the Patriots and make us all proud.
E A G L E S Eagles!
