Christmas Magic

The Eagles vs. Cowboys. The Eagles two biggest star players from their Superbowl turn - Donovan McNabb and T.O. are no longer playing; Donovan out with an inury for the rest of the season and perhaps the next one as well, and T.O. is actually on the Cowboys.

The Cowboys are hated in Philadelphia like sodomites are hated at a G.O.P. convention. That the divisive player and some would say, low down rotten scoundrel, T.O. is now playing for Dallas only adds fuel to that fire - and believe me, when it comes to Philadelphia sports fans, hate comes easily, volubly and without surcease.

Update: The Eagles have officially had a good season - in both of their annual games against Dallas, they beat the Cowboys. Anything else they do is just gravy.
A win against the Cowboys would truly be a Christmas Miracle.

I had a feeling you would be watching this game! How is the rest of your day going?

Apparently everyone on the West Side has a Christmas tradition of going for a walk at Venice Beach - because they are ALL here.

Heck yeah - and a pick right out of T.O.'s hands. Beautiful.

That was beautiful. Jeff and I are not the biggest sports fans but when living in the Philadelphia area you are morally obligated to support the Eagles. Plus we hate T.O. because he was such a pr!ck when he was here. When we saw that we both cheered!
You know, I hate to say this or even speculate but maybe it is a good thing that Donovan is out for the season? I mean he is an awesome player but fizzles out by the 3rd or 4rh quarter, then we lose and that discourages the team and makes it harder to win the next game. Maybe having a new quarterback is the best thing for the Eagles, at least you know, till we win the Superbowl? (It could happen!)

Donovoan's still a better QB than Garcia - but Garcia is really hot right now. He's playing better now than he ever did as a starter!

You can see how fired up he is on the field, and it must be inspiring for the rest of the team. I certainly hope he keeps it up, but... in terms of consistency, Donovan is the better player. Andy Reid will put him back in as soon as he's ready - but that won't be this season, so for now... let's be thankful we got Garcia on his wicked winning streak!
