Woooooo to the you-know-what-ing-Hoooooooo!!!!
I can’t believe what happened today really happened. Did Oakland really beat Tampa Bay? And then Chicago lost? And then did we totally and completely obliterate the Cowboys? As I was watching I was literally thinking, “I must be dreaming.”
But it was almost a disaster.
I was working in VA Beach this weekend so I watched the Giants game at the comics condo. All throughout the game the announcers kept talking about the implications of Oakland/TB and Houston/CHI, and previewing the Eagles/Cowboys game… But come 4:15, for some reason they’re showing Redskins/San Francisco. As if:
- the last NFC playoff spot isn’t being decided at that very moment
- this game has any playoff implications
- anyone interested in NFC football would rather watch this game than Philly/Dallas
Come on, FOX! Regional coverage? On a day like today? Get it together! My show began at 7 and when the second game started I was nowhere near ready to roll out for the evening. But when I saw Clinton Portis on my screen instead of Brian Westbrook, I hopped myself in the shower packed my stuff, took out the garbage and used my nifty new GPS to find the sports bar the club manager suggested. No way was I gonna miss this game. I rolled into the place and it was full of Eagles fans all decked out. It was heaven. At that point we were up 10-3 and it only got better ;)
What occurred next looked like what you might imagine would happen if an NFL team played a Pop Warner squad. At 44-3 I had to leave for my show. I felt pretty sure we wouldn’t blow that lead ;) But just in case anything crazy happened, there was a nice table of Philly fans who took my cell number and promised to text me if/when anything significant happened. Nothing did and they just texted me when the game was over.
Now we’ve got a clean slate. Playoffs here we come!!! Bring on those Vikings. I am so gassed!

I’m totally making you an Eagles Snuggie to celebrate their victory.
We were fortunate to see you in Virginia Beach at the Funny Bones and also keep up with the score of the Eagles/Dallas game from one of the guys there who knows I love the Eagles too. It was nice to know that you are also a serious Eagles fan, too.
We look forward to seeing you again when you come thru the area.
