To my awesome friends in England moral victories can be hollow but this squad played for Queen and Country and for those of us from other places who love your nation. May this reinvigorate the pride you have in your country and make the game of football stronger. Three Lions come back for World Cup 2022 better and stronger.
This evening in Minneapolis, Minnesota at US Bank Stadium the defending Super Bowl Champions New England Patriots will take on the upstart Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl 52. This is the biggest one day sporting event in America. The Patriots have won 5 championships and a win for The Eagles will be their first. I am pulling for Philadelphia tonight just because they haven’t won the big game in their history. Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback in NFL history and he hopes to cement his growing legend and legacy. I am looking forward to the game and spending time with family eating a lot of good things.
I like the Alabama Crimson Tide, I do. However my very deep Georgia roots have compelled me to cheer for The Georgia Bulldogs in the college football national championship game on Monday. This is going to be one for the history books either way. Georgia hasn’t had a national title in decades so perhaps them winning this is not a bad thing. The state of Georgia is all abuzz over this game and hopes and dreams are riding high.
I hope my family members who went to Georgia Tech won’t disown me or something like that.
Save some space next to your turkey for football Thursday, because there’s going to be a whole lot of NFL this Thanksgiving.
