Eagles QB McNabb is ready
and surprisingly, so is Terrell Owens (Eagles WR -- dude had TWO METAL SCREWS AND A PLATE put into his ankle six weeks ago). i don't know about you but he looks good to me...
the fans are ready (although i dunno what that has to do with an eagle...)
and Tedy Bruschi, Pats LB, has his own pregame routine down.
The Eagle's response? "Enough already....let's do this!"
For awhile, things didn't look so good
the boys were getting manhandled
and there were thoughts that this was to be the result.
fortunately, the tide turned. looks like Bruschi's pre-game routine worked for him, as he managed to sack Donovan McNabb
Corey Dillon (Pats RB) did his thing
as did Adam Vinatieri, who kicked what turned out to be the winning FG.
it got tense towards the end, as Eagles WR Greg Lewis made a phenomenal 30 yard reception to pull the Eagles within 3 with a minute to go.
but it was not to be. VICTORY!
Congrats to the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS,
Superbowl XXXIX CHAMPS!
