My old girl Britt wins the Super Bowl coolness competition. Before the game, she wrote, “I am a nervous wreck today..excited, anxious, full of adrenaline..so many emotions..then I looked down at my mood ring and all was right…”
They did it. They won three games no one picked them to win. They did it with a back-up quarterback who took the reins in December. They beat Belicheat and the Cheatriots. They earned it. Fly, Eagles, Fly.
The Eagles historic win drops Ernesto the Prediction Iguana to 7-6 in playoffs, 3-4 in playoff teasers.
And three of those losses were betting against the Eagles.
When it came to injuring starting quarterbacks, the old NFL saw was “Knock him out, count ’em out.” This time it was “Knock him out, hand hm a Lombardi Trophy.”
I guess it’s also not true in the NFC East as Foles did what Jeff Hostetler did for the Giants against the Bills in Supe XXV – bac-up wins the title!
And so Ernesto heads back into hibernation until next Fall. He finishes the year 65-28-1 overall 25-23 in teasers.
