...it's a hard year to be a football fan in PA. Penn State got a BCS bid to the RipOff Bowl, Pittsburgh pretty much sealed their fate with a loss to the Cincinatti Bengals (remember when they were the punchline to a joke?) and my beloved Eagles have officially imploded on a grand scale, laying the grandest of Monday Night eggs, a 42-0 blowout loss at home.
The fact that the Eagles laid this particular egg on the night when Reggie White's number 92 was retired is an insult to the man and his legacy. The things I remember about White are his strength, his spirit, and that the man never quit....EVER. He got sacks where he was crawling on all fours toward the QB, like some gridiron Terminator.
I miss having Reggie around. More than that, as an Eagles fan, I miss having his spirit around.
