Fly Eagles Fly!

Well, whaddaya know? The Philadephia Eagles have broken their NFC Championship curse, and after three unsuccesssful attempts they've actually beat the Atlanta Falcons 27-10 and therefore are going to the Super Bowl number 39! My partner is ecstatic - a perennial Philly fan, she is of the opinion that the national media ignore Philadelphia teams and give them short-shrift. This season, it's all been about the Colts and Peyton Manning, and when they got knocked out it's all been about the Patriots and their new dynasty - with the taciturn Tom Brady not letting the side down and seeing New England to another Super Bowl. But what about perennial plucky contenders the Eagles? my partner vainly cries! Don't they deserve some respect from the media? Doesn't Donovan McNabb & co. surely rock? Maybe they do now. Maybe they shall indeed get some respect at long last. We shall see.

Meantime, to hear "Fly Eagles Fly," the anthem of perhaps the best football fans in N. America, check out the Eagles web site.
