Ahhh…Football

I can not begin to tell you how excited I am that football season is once again among us.  I mean, I have had one seriously craptastic summer dealing with knee surgery, but as of last night (W00T!  Eagles pre-season win!!) my joy has returned. 

What a year we’re going to have too…I mean, this is the Philly Dream Season (says a prayer to the football gawds not to jinx us because I said that).  Andy Reid has put together a dream team…we have Vick…who is, well, awesome…

Deshawn Jackson is back…

We’ve hired ourselves a defense!!

And a kicker!!

And we have this man – the man with the most tenure among NFL Coaches!! 

Let’s go Iggles!! 

Fly Eagles Fly, On The Road To Victory.
Fight Eagles Fight, Score A Touchdown 1-2-3.

Hit ‘Em Low.
Hit ‘Em High.
And We’ll Watch Our Eagles Fly.

Fly Eagles Fly, On The Road To Victory.

E-A-G-L-E-S, EAGLES!!!

Go IGGLES!!

Do You Hear That Sucking Sound?

It’s my Philly Sports teams.  The Iggles GAVE AWAY the game to the Titans this past weekend.  And hey, what can I say about the Phils…at least I don’t have to sit on pins and needles through the World Series again this year.

Yeah.

At least they don’t stink as bad as the Broncos stank on Sunday.

It’s Gonna Be a LONG Season…

Dear Andy Reid,

You suck. Seriously. Your time management stinks. Your quarterback decisions suck big old stinky dung heaps.

No love,

Me

Dear Michael Vick,

You are not forgiven in my eyes. I do not respect you. But I will give you this, you did what you had to do yesterday. You at least made the game interesting. But seriously – if you have the ball in your hands, and no one is anywhere near you, and you are 20 yards away from the end zone, run for the damned touch down. Don’t just throw the ball. RUN! Like the law is after you! You’re familiar with that, right???

Less love,

Me

Dear Kevin Kolb,

I realize you were nervous…but seriously, you played like Betty White. Sorry about the concussion and all, but whoa – my granny played QB better than you.

Big sigh,

Me

Dear Donovan McNabb,

For the record, I never wanted to get rid of you. You are still my favorite quarterback – right up there with Peyton Manning. I’m sorry you got traded to the Deadskins. I want you back. I never Boo’ed you. Never. Congrats on the game last night…thanks for beating the Cowcraps. Even though you are with the Deadskins, I’ll still cheer for you. I’ve retired your Green #5 to our at home Hall of Fame.

Your biggest fan (next to your mamma),

Me

It’s gonna be a LONG season y’all.

What Is Wrong With This Picture?

OK, so, McNabb was traded.  And that’s ok.  I’m sad…I was always a McNabb fan, and I always will be.  The beloved Green #5 still hangs in my closet, and will still be worn on jersey day at work.  I don’t care if he is a deadskin now.

But seriously Andy…the freaking DEADSKINS???  Which would have been fine, if we had actually GOTTEN SOMETHING IN RETURN.  But a couple of draft choices?????  And now all we have is Kolb?

Yep- that’s pretty much how confused he looks every time he’s on the field.  ::Sob::

With con-Vick-t as the backup?

Am I in a parallel universe?  Is this opposite week?

I couldn’t even post about this when it happened because I was distraught beyond words.  And for the record, I’m not distraught over l0sing McNabb (my Iggles hero will always be Jaws)…but that fact that we went from a playoff team to a re-building team in the space of two years.

First Dawk to the Broncos…

then Westbrook (although he spent more time injured than actually playing)

and now McNabb…let these guys retire as Iggles.  Seriously. 

And now Gocong to the Browns?  THE BROWNS?  Hello – can anyone say career death?

Andy Reid…it’s time for you to go.  You’ve done great things…but now, not so much anymore.

The only thing you have in your favor right now is the fact that you didn’t trade McNabb to the Cowcraps…because you know that you would have died an ugly death on opening day…if the fans would have let you wait that long.

Goodbye #5…you served us well.

The Broncos Dawk? Really?

Brian Dawkins, I will miss you.  Sigh.  The Eagles will miss you.  Our season, it’s going to suck.  It’s going to be strange to see you in the Orange Crush.  Lucky for me, we are a two football team household, and that other team is the Broncos. 

Good luck in your new endeavors.  Fly Eagles Fly.
