A toast to Andy Reid

So ESPN just had footage of Andy Reid giving his "final remarks" to the team he's coached for 14 years.

Heh. "final remarks," my ass.

I hate - and I mean seethingly, unequivocally, venomously, and incoherently fucking HATE - every sports franchise out of Philadelphia...but none more than the Eagles. My hate for the Eagles so completely colors my perspective that my otherwise-indifference towards the Phillies has darkened into loathing for loathing's sake. I hate the Phillies because somewhere, somehow, someone who roots for the Eagles also roots for the Phillies, so fuck you, too. That's why.

But here's to Andy Reid.

Coached a pro team in fucking Philly for fourteen years - Bill Clinton still had two years to go when he started - and lived to tell the tale.

Can't wait to hear it.

Here's to ya, sir. Quite sincerely. The rest of us will amount to a few yards of fill and a headstone if we're lucky enough. You held arguably the hardest post in sports for more than five thousand long days.

1. The way he was able to put up with the POS fans of Philadelphia was amazing.

You are not a fan in the NFC East, and we truly loathe the team from Philadelphia and their fans. Here's to Norv Turner moving to Philadelphia!!



BTW, I hated the 76'ers and the whole Dr. J era and the whole Greg Luzinski era with the phillies as a Pirates fan.

2. I had a lot of respect for Reid and the Eagles until they signed Vick

3. I thought Reid showed a lot of class at the end.

I hope he takes some time off - he needs it.

4. I'm hearing reports he has a deal w/ imminent

I don't want a coach that runs the ball less than Whisenhunt. The glass half-view of it is if they sign Vick as a short-term starter they'll have two QBs that know Reid's system. Vick's yards per play numbers are very good, it is the turnovers that are the problem, and he is exponentially better than any QB currently on the Cards roster.
