What Would Buddy Do?

Since a bunch of other folks have already weighed in on this topic over the past week, and even though I don’t actually believe that the Eagles’ long-term hold over the sports feelings of the Delaware Value is at risk, I thought it might be an appropriate moment to dredge up a “prediction” from this past summer:

1. The Eagles own Philly.  I know we’re all nuts for the NFL, but, man, this Phillies team is puh-retty charming.  Can you imagine if Chase Utley played quarterback?  He’d be elected Emporer shortly thereafter.  And I can definitely imagine a couple things breaking right for the Phightins and then, BAM, the championship drought is over.  That might actually bump the Birds down a few pegs.  Not permanently, mind you, but long enough to reduce Sunday evening domestic violence in the Delaware Valley for a couple months/ sell a significant amount of Phillies Officially Licensed Products.

Again, I don’t want to risk being struck by lightning, but let me imagine a scenario: Birds struggle against SF and (cough cough) lost another close game.  Eagles head to bye week.  Sun continues to shine on Phillies.  That means two weeks until Atlanta whilst the Phightins charm the city with their can-do optimism.  Even I’ll be purposely avoiding the Birds for at least a week in that scenario.

It doesn’t mean that we’re divorcing the Birds, but at this point, battered and bruised as we are, no one’s going to be too judgmental if we treat ourselves to a bit of a fling with the Phightins.  It’s really for the best.
