A week after Super Bowl LII, it’s finally time for me to move on. The grieving has concluded.
Really though, as much as I hated to see the Patriots lose, that loss was bittersweet because at age seventy-five, I can remember myself as a seventeen year old Eagles fan in 1960, listening to Bill Campbell call the game on the radio as they won the NFL Championship Game (what they called it before they started calling it “The Super Bowl”), defeating the Vince Lombardi Packers in a game that came down to the final play..
I don’t remember post-game riots, or even a victory parade. But then, the city and in fact the society have changed quite drastically since 1960.
But I do remember how wonderful that feeling was for me - and for all Eagles fans.
