Back to Reality

February 16, 2018

What a whirlwind
The last week and a half has been…

For all you lifelong Philly fans…
The Eagles finally hit pay dirt

What a game….
It looked like a shoot out

Tom Brady played one of his best games ever
And lost….

Nick Foles was in a zone….

Rather than succumbing to pressure of the moment
Foles took it to a whole new level….
And brought the Super Bowl Trophy
To Philadelphia

My wife and I ran out to Dicks right after the game
And bought shirts for our kids and grand kids

It looked like they were giving away free money…
Hundreds of people making their way
Thru a maze
To the table in the center of Dicks
That held all the shirts

Shirts were flying in every direction

Excuse me…
Where does it say what size this is….
I don’t need that size
Where’s the women’s medium
Are the men’s large over there….
Do you see any youth small anywhere…
We need 3 of them

Now that we have the shirts….
It is hurry up and wait….

Oh….We have to pay for all this fun

$400 later….
We didn’t get home until right before midnight…

Then I said to myself…
It is way past my bedtime…
I should probably go to bed…

Go to Bed….
How could I just go to sleep…
The Eagles won the Super Bowl
And there is going to be a big parade

Anybody else have that problem….
Going to sleep that night…
I was wide awake till about 2:30…

I got a text after the game…

Coming up for the parade
Do you have an extra bed…

Flem was flying in from Florida
This is going to be fun…

The parade went off without a hitch
We took the Speedline over
And watched the parade at 15th and Market
Right by City Hall
Brent hooked us up….

The crowd loved it…
The players loved it…
The police loved it…
We all loved it…
It was a Philadelphia lovefest

People could not stop smiling
And yes…
There were a lot of Eagle chants and singing……

Fly Eagles fly…
Thousands of people singing at once

E A G L E S…..

You could feel the energy all around you

So now what…
It’s……Back to Reality…

Sports radio is a buzz…
Will the Eagles repeat…
What do we do with Foles…
Hour by hour they go on…

We will be hearing the same conversation
For the next couple of months

Hey…
Did you know the Phillies Pitchers and Catchers
Started practicing Feb 14th…

Valentine’s Day

Is this the sign for another lovefest…

The full team starts practicing Feb 19th

It’s Phillies Spring training…

That should help fill the time

 

 

Every Day is a Gift
