The agony that is being an Eagles fan

Posted by quirksalight on November 25, 2007

The Eagles v. Patriots game just wrapped up tonight. Final score, 31-28, Patriots.
I mean, come on! An amazing drive, at the end of the 4th quarter cut short b/c Feeley lobs the freakin’ ball into the hands of Asante Samuel, the same guy who intercepted the ball in the 1st quarter. Even the announcers were saying that – what are you thinking, throwing the ball in the direction of the guy who intercepted the last time, and why are you throwing it to the outside, when for the previous three quarters, throwing to the inside had the better outcome?
Don’t get me wrong; It was a really good game. I, being an Eagles fan, am bitterly disappointed that they couldn’t pull it through and win. But at the same time, the Eagles made the Patriots struggle to win the game, which is far better than anyone expected. Yet, the whole raising your hopes to dash them… well… that’s part of the package of being a Philadelphia Eagles fan, isn’t?
