Eagles Football

I watch their games on TV, but I secretly hope they will loose. It’s not the team I dislike, but the fans.

When the Eagles won the Super Bowl in 2008, how many times were we subjected to kindergarten classes singing their fight song, led by their wildly enthusiastic young female teachers?

The Eagles fight song, by the way, goes:

Fly Eagles fly!
On the road to victory!
Fly Eagles fly!
Score a touchdown!

1, 2, 3!
Hit ’em low!
Hit ’em high!
And watch our Eagles fly!
On the road to victory!

Trite, and full of clichés. “Hit ‘em low! Hit ‘em high!” How original. Do coaches still say that? Oh well, it rhymes with “fly,” and that’s what matters. Our classmates were better songwriters.

If the news was not showing a kindergarten class, they showed a bar scene where the same kids were grown up, out-of-their-minds drunk and yelling, celebrating someone else’s accomplishments. You would think the kids today would fear how they will be in twenty years if they follow the example of their kindergarten teachers.
