Is It Appropriate...?

Is it appropriate to wear green to a funeral? That's what I'm pondering this AM as I get ready to put on my Jaws throwback and drive down to FedEx Field for today's Eagles/Redskins game. At least the sun's out, temps should be in the high 40s, and we'll be tailgating with some chicken, cold cuts, cool beverages, homemade potato salad, chips and dip.

Each game brings us closer and closer to the end of the McNabb Era (and Reid Era?) in Philly and a loss today could put a final, resounding nail in the coffin of the Eagles' season, dropping them to 3-6 and no wins through four division games. With a second half schedule that includes three "winnable games" (and I use that term loosely) at home against Miami, Seattle and Buffalo and four potential disasters against Dallas, Giants, Saints and (shudder) the Patriots on national TV, I fear the Eagle Faithful is in for a long, unpleasant remainder of the season.

You thought the best thing about today would be the potato salad but it was a sweet Eagles victory! LOL!

What a crazy game! My buddy Bob is as fatalistic about the Skins as I am about the Birds so neither of us felt very comfortable with *any* lead. Fun game to be there for and we had a bunch of Eagles fans around us.
