So, it’s confession time.
A few weeks ago when the Cincinnati Bengals beat the San Diego Chargers, 17-10, I went ahead and took the splash.
I had a “friend” who was heading up to Delaware Park put $100 on them to win the Super Bowl in February. I got 45 to 1 odds.
No, silly, I didn’t bet on the Bengals.
I put it on the Chargers.
Oh, before I let you go and enjoy your Friday, I wanted to take you on a quick trip down memory lane.
When the Eagles opened their 2009 home schedule, they hosted the Saints.
When the Eagles opened their 2010 home schedule, they hosted the Packers.
When the Eagles opened their 2011 home schedule, they hosted the Giants.
When the Eagles opened their 2012 home schedule, they hosted the Ravens.
So what, right?
Well, guess who won the Super Bowl in all of those seasons I listed above?
The team that played in Philadelphia for the Eagles first home game of the season.
And, guess who played in Philadelphia this year to open the home portion of the schedule in September?
How on earth am I going to spend that $4,500? LOL
