“Joy is the feeling of grinning inside.” When your eyes meet the first tweet, or your ears first heard the most stunning announcement in Philadelphia since Viagra went on sale, Wilson Goode ordered a bombing in a residential neighborhood or the Phillies had signed Cliff Lee, if you are or were a lover of football than internally you had the greatest grin since you realized the illegitimate reason for Christmas. The answer too many Philadelphia football prayers were delivered in a press conference in a small Pennsylvania town called Bethlehem. The Philadelphia Eagles known to most Cowboys fans as the team that has never won a Super Bowl signed Nnamdi Asomugha. So Let it be written, so let it be done. There will be time to analyze the ramifications of this bold move in the upcoming days. For now we must only exhale at this stunning revelation from Andy, Howie, Jeffery and Joe As a side note the Eagles in addition signed Vince Young, Johnnie Lee Higgins, Jason Babin and Donald Lee. Who said Rome was not built in a day? The only thing passed the feeling of surprise is that Philadelphia is once again the benefactor of the spurning of Dallas and New York. It is in the sports realm no longer the bastardized step child of the city that never sleeps. As for proof: the Phillies just got Hunter Pence!!
Today a football team in Philadelphia became complete. It is a team that is replete with speed in all areas, dynamic playmakers at most positions and a cadre of experience and know how on its sidelines. The time is now for this team to work hard on and off the field. Today men who are traditionally ridiculed and tormented by false know-it-alls must be given their just praise and props. Today for 60 million dollars over 5 years a town was redeemed and the greatest non championship sports day was birthed. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. E-A-G-L-E-S
