The Philadelphia Eagles will be playing for a spot in the Super Bowl today. Being a life-long Eagles fan I have to admit that I am biased, but I believe this could finally be theiryear to win it all. With all due respect to the Arizona Cardinals, the Eagles should destroy them and have the game wrapped up by the 4th quarter. 

The song is “Gonna Fly Now”, the theme from (the) Rocky movie franchise.  Composed by Bill Conti with lyrics by Carol Connors and Ayn Robbins.  Appropriately set in Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love.

If the Eagles don’t win, it was a very thrilling and exciting ride this season!

    I won’t blame you if you quietly delete this post, Tito. It’s been a rough first half.

  2. Jason says:

    I hope you didn’t put much money on the game.

  3. Tito Edwards says:

    It was fun from the beginning of the second half through midway the 4th quarter.

    John Henry,

    If I was near a computer I would have been tempted.

    In the end it’s only a game. But oh what a glorious 3rd quarter it was!

    Good luck to the Cardinals in the Super Bowl!

    Somewhat subdued as to the collapse of the Iggles in University of e-learning Dome. Like the secondary players watching helplessly as Larry Fitzgerald blew past them for three TDs. Like a total Cardinal D trapping, spinning, dumping Donovan McNabb too many times. Like Andy Reid reverting back to his pass-happy playcalling- uh, Andy, Carell Buckhalter is always good for two to three tough yards. Funny how Cards coach Ken Wisenhunt has similar habit- uh, Ken, you have Edgerrin James on your roster, use him once or twice. Am loathe to predict less than Lombardi Trophy for this miracle Cardinals team. But watching that Pittsburgh Steelers state of art defense inflicted on Baltimore Ravens was an examination of Hard Truths About Football. Steelers in 10 to bring trophy back to PA. And prayers for the healing of Ravens’ Willis McGahee following that collision with Steelers’ Ryan Clark, possibly the hardest these football watching eyes have ever seen. As for Iggles- oh well fun while it lasted.

    I don’t have a dog in this game, but I’ll be rooting for the team that most of my friends will be rooting for. So far it looks like Pittsburgh!

  7. John Henry says:

    I usually root for Pittsburgh as a secondary team, because it’s the only major city besides DC that I have lived near and the Redskins have been bad for a while.

    But the Cardinals have only won one championship in 110 years as a franchise, and that was sixty years ago. The Redskins went to more championships in five years during the 80’s, than the Cardinals have in 110 years. Mercy compels me to root for the underdog.
