Are You Ready for Some Football?!

I sure am ... and as you read on Friday so is Em and her family! (I can't wait to get my 2014 Seasons Greetings). 

That was always one thing she and I had in common throughout college, our love for the Eagles! Lucky for her she married an Eagles fan. Me on the other hand, I crossed enemy lines and married a Giants fan (I know crazy right?!) Football season sure is fun in my house!

Sundays we both wake up and immediately put on our respective team shirts and the sh*t talking begins. Well, it's already begun and the 2014 regular season isn't even underway yet. Forget about the days (October 12 and December 28, the last game of the season) that the Eagles play the Giants. We might as well have war paint on our faces those days. 

I am unfortunately very outnumbered living in New Jersey. All of our friends in Jersey are Giants fans and my entire family (uncles, aunts, cousins) proudly wear that hideous shade of blue.  

I am the happiest when my brother and dad are around on a Sunday to at least have a couple Eagles fans in my corner. 

The Eagles made some big moves in the off-season by drafting Marcus Smith in the first round and trading for Darren Sproles.
Friday the Eagles take the field in their second pre-season game up in New England against Tom Brady and the hooded Bill Belichick who are out to reclaim their position on top this year. 
Unlike last year, the Eagles actually look like they belong on the same field as the Patriots, with Foles at the helm of the ship. It’s amazing the difference a year can make, Foles is looking sharp, the o-line has more cohesion and the defense now knows what it’s doing.
Dare I say, they already look like a better team than they did last year?!
Only time will tell, but I sure am excited to get this season underway! But first we must head up to New England, then host the Steelers and the Jets to close out pre-season. September 7 can't come soon enough, I'm like a little kid on Christmas Eve anxiously awaiting something special ... The start of the 2014/2015 NFL Season. 
Em, please tell Sally and Graham that Aunt Loni is practicing her Eagles fight song!
