Screw you stupid Lexus commercial...Sunday night was the best gift ever!
I bashed them. We all bashed them. But today I get to gloat. Today I am so freaking proud to be an Eagles' fan...kinda like a DeSean and Andy chest bump or Lurie high-five to the face of my wife.
This feeling has been missing since T.O. and his drive way sit-ups.
It's been a rollercoaster ride with this team. Teams are now firing coaches, losing teams are attacking fellow players and coaches over miscues...but Philadelphia is preparing for the 2009 NFL Playoffs!
In the end, the team, the coach, the QB all delivered a playoff appearance. And to this fan that is all that really matters at this point. The ultimate goal is still a championship, but when your expectation 48 hrs ago was a January without football, the #6 seed seems pretty freaking sweet.
I can't promise you that I won't be bashing the fat guy next week (who now also sports some old man scruff) if he abandons the balanced offensive attack against the Vikings. But maybe this Philly fan is finally reaping the benefits of the Phillies' championship.
We got our long awaited championship...now we can sit back and enjoy some good play, even if it might not be championship play. Enjoy the ride, I will be!
