The national pastime

Now that the owners and players have colluded to destroy baseball, and basketball has devolved into a branch of hip-hop music, football is America’s national sport. And this past weekend was a dream for football fans. On Saturday, two shocking blowouts. On Sunday, two even more shocking comebacks. You gotta love it.

My team, the Philadelphia Eagles, plays Saturday against Atlanta. Until we go to war, the Eagles are the biggest story in the Philly media. They haven’t won the NFL championship in 42 years, and haven’t been in the Superbowl in 22. Could this be the year?
