I can't imagine any Eagles fans in Boston would have dared to watch last night's game at a bar. I had to scrap my plans to watch at my daughter's house because we're both sick, so I settled in at home texting with my son after R went to bed sometime in the 3rd quarter. A nailbiter to the end, it was not a game to watch alone. The Eagles won their first Super Bowl, and I'm feeling a little sentimental right now not to be in Philadelphia for the celebratory mayhem.
Even if, like me, you do not understand or even like the game, this video of Eagles' kicker Jake Elliott, from early in the season, will make you smile.
He did it again last night, not quite as far and not so dramatically, but scoring 3 more points in the last 65 seconds of the game. Final score: 41-33.
