Patriots topple the Eagles

Well, New England and Dion Branch knocked off the Eagles, but Philadelphia definitely made it interesting.

The whining has already started where I live. They couldn't exactly complain about Donovan McNabb considering he threw over 300 yards. Terrell Owens was clearly healthy and contributed. Brian Westbrook gained almost 100 yards and scored. And the defense held the Patriots to 24 points, which is no small feat.

All I'm hearing from the neighbors is how poor the clock management was. They had to march the entire length of the field in the last minute, and score. Had they hurried, and turned the ball over, fans would have been complaining that the Eagles should have been patient.

Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles for being closer to NFL champions than any other Eagles team since the Super Bowl Era began. Going to four consecutive NFC championship games is a major accomplishment, especially into today's league. They were simply slightly out-played by a slightly better team. SunFyre applauds you.

And congratulations to Bob Kraft and his New England Patriots for building the first dynasty of the 21st century.

I was born in 1970. About a year later I was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy. I never walked. I got my first wheelchair at kindergarten age, and my first power wheelchair in sixth grade.
Yet, around 4 to 6 times per year I have to, for one reason or another, prove that I'm disabled.
Granted, I'm 5 feet nothin', 112 pounds and sit in an electric wheelchair, but apparently that's just anecdotal evidence… We need science!
The Good Doctor
Every couple months I have to send my physician a form and ask him to fill it out. He has to state that I have spinal muscular atrophy, identify the diagnosis date, explained that my prognosis is something akin to "ain't getting better any time soon" and sign it.
With new Medicare regulations, the good doctor is not allowed to sign the said form without seeing me "face-to-face" to prevent fraud. Although I'm extraordinarily healthy, hospitalized last in 1996 for something unrelated to my dis…

Friday Funnies: Aging Gracefully

I pointed to two old drunks sitting across the bar from us and told my friend, "That's us in 10 years".

He said "That's a mirror, dip-shit!"
