As you’ve gleaned, I’ve been away this week. The doctors saw fit to ram another scope up my backside & remove the polyps they found. So, I’m gingerly recuperating. But don’t worry – this isn’t a “Boots On The Ground” post (because, eww). But there was one match last weekend that demanded I cover it despite my absence, for it involves many themes I previously covered in an earlier column, only the fanbase is much louder, much vulgarier, and – as Big Daddy Drew opined – much more worse that the Packers.
The game against RAMMIT itself was quite a barnburner and, much like my being on drugs most of the weekend,
Specifically, when QB Jesus decided to take it upon himself to score a touchdown that would ultimately be called back due to penalty.
And followed it up with a gimpy-legged pass for a TD.
The realization slowly dawned on Philly fan that there was something amiss.
And lo, the recriminations began.
Oh, that bad.
But at least one person found a ray of sunshine amidst the darkness,

Because the resemblance is uncanny.
Of course, the a-holes of Twitter found their way into the mix,

the fans were on board like they’d never heard of the Stockholm Syndrome.
I mean, they went in HARD.
As always, there will be plenty of second guessing and other options bandied about,
Surprisingly, given their success this year, Eagles fan seems surprisingly receptive to whatever Faustian bargain could bring them their elusive first Lombardi trophy,
no matter how ridiculous the option provided.
Now the team has a rallying cry,

and the faithful BELIEVE!
Until they lose in the playoffs, at which point they will turn on Nick Foles like he was black and named “Donovan McNabb”.
However, until that comes to pass, Rocky and Adrian – this is your Philadelphia Eagles Twitter, delusional to its core.
